    I am not surprised at all that Rev. Dr. Sadanand - (Bishop of Church of South India) has taken over responsibility as The Chancellor of Serampore University which has a fame and name. This historical college has rendered wonderful service in the field of theology to hundreds of people in the past and within the next eight years will be celebrating the second centenary.

    I join several people in congratulating Bishop Stephen Sadanand on this great achievement.

    I have know Bishop Sadanand not only as a man of God but also as humane, kind and resourceful individual. Irene and I had the pleasure of having him with us in The Sanctuary for our sixtieth wedding anniversary.
