On behalf of South Asian Fellowship we hope you all had a wonderful summer though some days were humid with extreme heat, but we know fall is not far and we enjoy nature’s beautiful gift of fall foliage. Every day media reflects tragic incidents around the world and in our country. In the last few weeks tragic events happened in Louisiana, Minnesota, and now Dallas, it makes more evident that we need God Almighty more than ever. Even in the campaigns for the upcoming elections we have witnessed distrust, revenge, and anger from both parties. We see no one to lead us and guide us. To whom shall we go? Our differences seem to lead us even farther apart. Let us call upon God Almighty who can save us, give leaders who can lead us to reconciliation, unite us, to heal our wounds, and not those who will only provoke more hate. In this context theme for the South Asian Fellowship for August 13th will be How I can be anAmbassadors of Peace.

On May 4, we had the privilege to participate in the Holocaust memorial service at JCC of Middlesex County at Oak Tree Road in Edison. It was a great service in honor to commemorate 6 million Jews who were killed. We had an opportunity to listen to the testimonies of survivors and Clergy Association of Edison and Metuchen paid a great tribute for all the life that were lost in horrific act of violence because of one man.
