The Bible has transformed individuals and communities across this Nation. The Bible has played a unique role (directly and/or indirectly) in the development of Khasi language and cultural identity.
It’s been 125 years since the entire Khasi Bible was printed as one volume. And, it is definitely an occasion to celebrate.
The 125 years of the Khasi Bible was organized by the Bible Society of India, Shillong Auxiliary and celebrated at the Phudmawri Presbyterian Church on 3rd & 4th December 2016.
The celebrations were attended by over 150 members from the BSI branches. The special service was also attended by over 120 invitees. Rev.Dr. M. Mani Chacko, BSI General Secretary was the Chief Guest. He released the Khasi Bible CL and also an Animation DVD featuring 9 stories drawn the Old Testament. Rev. G. R. Sancley, the senior most pastor of the Khasi Presbyterian Church unveiled the Memorial Tablet.
The public Worship service conduced on Sunday was a massive gathering of around 10000 people. The congregation thanked God for the gift of the Khasi Bible and the many blessings it has brought to the land, people and life.
