Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

"A Long Way Home" is a memoir written in 2013 by Saroo Brierley. An international best seller, it was made into a film in 2016 called "Lion" ("Saroo" means lion in Hindi). It has been nominated for many awards, including Best Picture.


The book and film recall Saroo's amazing story.... a five-year-old boy in rural India who becomes lost and.... amazingly.... ends up in Calcutta, some 1500 miles from home. A little, lost boy - he lives in the streets (along with thousands of other homeless children) and in spite of life-threatening realities everywhere, survives for several months. A good turn or two results in him being adopted by people in Australia. Some 20 years later, entirely by using tools on the Internet - he finds his home (in spite of not knowing his own last name, his mother's name - and incorrectly "knowing" the name of his village). An amazing but true story.


I highly recommend the book and the film

Yes I've seen this film and it was amazing! A very touching movie and it made me cry. The little boy in the film really did a great job in portraying as the young Saroo. I really like Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel and they also did an amazing job in this film. I haven't read the book yet but I would definitely recommend this film for those who haven't seen it yet :)
