In Christ today, we shall proceed
to bring Peace and Joy
with arms of faith, and dreams of hope
Go forward sharing Love…
– Jeevan Babu
Rev. D. S. Jeevan Babu, God’s faithful servant who day in and day out fulfilled his ministry in quiet fidelity and love, was called ‘home’ this morning.
Rev. Jeevan Babu gave an inspiring witness of his love for God and self-sacrificing service in his priestly ministry. We thank God for his exemplary life and witness. He faithfully fulfilled his ministry up until the last few months of his life, when ill-health finally overcame him.
‘Jeevan’, as he was popularly called, served the National Council of Churches in India from February 1994 to October 1998 as the Secretary of the Unit on Mission & Evangelism. As an Ecumenist, he was involved with the study of Gospel & Cultures and took various initiatives to strengthen the faith of the recently converted Christians of various tribal people groups in India, especially of the Lambadi tribe living in Andhra Pradesh and in the borders of Maharashtra.
He subsequently served as the Communication Director of the Karnataka Central Diocese, Church of South India. Through his writings he sensitized people about the love of life and God’s plans through our lives. He published around 3 dozen books on creation, life and God’s love for us, humans.
