God Moves & You keep Pushing
Once God appeared to a young man in a dream and told him, young man when you wake up, you will see a huge bolder and push it.
The young man got up and found a bolder, as it was told.
He began to push it. He pushed it again and again, days and weeks and months. But it would not move.
He gave all his energy.
But there was no sign of the Bolder moving an inch
He complained to God. You told me to push the boulder.
I am faithfully doing it for days, weeks and months.
But it does not move an inch.
God told him, my dear friend, I told you to push.
Please go ahead doing what I told you.
Moving the boulder is my job.
Keep Pushing is your job.
God will move your burdens, baggages….
But never give up pushing and trusting him …
Distance Education Programme in Theology (DEPTh)
In a world of knowledge explosion the need to update the fundamentals of one’s faith life has become a necessity. Men and women from different walks of life express the desire to enrich their faith life in consonance with the contemporary world and its challenges. The study of theology – seen till recently as meant only for the clergy or the religious – is becoming more popular with the lay faithful who see it as a right as well as a duty emerging from their Christian vocation. Distance Education Programme in Theology (DEPTh) is an attempt to respond to this quest, and is designed as a life-enrichment course in the Indian/Asian context.
The Jesuit-run Vidyajyoti College of Theology, Delhi, has been in the field of theological education for a century and a half. True to its name ‘Vidyajyoti’ (light of knowledge) aims at spreading the light of theology far and wide. The Second Vatican Council had a dream when it wrote: “Let the laity, therefore, diligently apply themselves to a more profound knowledge of revealed truth…” (LG, 35). Sharing in the same dream Vidyajyoti has initiated the new Distance Education Programme in Theology (DEPTh) primarily for the lay faithful. It welcomes all who desire to deepen their Christian faith, and search for avenues of deeper participation in the mission of the Church.
