Maramon Convention

By: Dev Sri

On the banks of Pamba River is Maramon; the center where the great Christian religious gathering takes place.

Maramon has a history past many years. This is a place where the largest Christian gathering takes place in Asia. The great reformer of the Syrian Church in Kerala, Palakkunnathu Abraham Maplah was a part of Maramon. Maramon convention is held every year on the sand bed stretches of Pamba River below the Kozhenchery Bridge.

The beauty of maramon Convention is that people of religious rites gather here as a part of great religious harmony. Maramon Convention invokes spiritual motivation and alight the hearts of thousands every year through the religious preaching. Mar Thoma Evangelical Association, a missionary wing of Mar Thoma Syrian Church of Malabar organizes the event.

People from all walks of life gather here without any limitations in caste and creed. People from all around India gather here to receive the Word Of God into their hearts. Renowned preachers from all over the world come here to sow the seeds of goodness into the hearts to these faithful. Immensely motivated, people go forth with high spirits to renew the face of the church. On these days special Bible classes takes place also separate Bible classes for different age groups. Separate sessions to abstain from alcoholism, drugs and more are taken. As a response for the call to built up the church people go forth dedicating their lives in service of the Lord.

How such a great number of people gather here without imposing much pressure on them is an unanswerable question.
