Various Christian faith communities across Nagpur have participated in a music concert organized by the National Council of Churches in India (NCCI) on Jan. 18 at Sristhi Lawn, NCCI Campus, Nagpur, on the theme "Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power (Ex. 15:6)."
Through the music event, the ecumenical body aimed to enlarge ecumenical rapport and togetherness among the Christians, especially young men and women, "spreading the message of peace and unity through music in the midst of the rising atmosphere of turmoil and intolerance in our society."
