HANDFUL OF TRANQUILITY- ELDERS’ DAY PROGRAMME 2017
“Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind” Ecclesiastes 4:6 (NIV)
Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing.
The Ceylon Bible Society is organizing an Exhibition & Sale to commemorate the International Elders’ Day, on Saturday, 28th October, 2017 from 9.00am- 2.00pm at the the Our Lady of Sorrows Church, Walana , Panadura. It is a wonderful opportunity provided by the Ceylon Bible Society for the Senior Citizens for the 14th time to exhibit & sell the hand work, clothes, food made by them using their God given talents. The organization of this event is an attempt by the Ceylon Bible Society to extend its encouragement and support to the Senior Citizens in a society where they are often neglected and do not receive due appreciation. There has been a very positive response from the Senior Citizens who have been uplifted and empowered through this venture.
