In line with the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Buklod, the organization for married members, the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ), through the Christian Family Organizations (CFO) Office, launched the INC Family Hour (Volume 2) on December 15, 2022; the first volume was released in 2017.
The book, like the first volume, “is a compilation of family hour weekly reminders or messages from the Church Administration, which are read during the INC Family Hour of every Iglesia Ni Cristo family; a ready reference of God’s will concerning the Christian families,” said Brother Marlex C. Cantor of the Media Resource Center (MRC) of the Church’s Department of Evangelism; he was among the panel of ministers who edited the book.
The book launching was held at the Iglesia Ni Cristo Library, situated within the compound of the main campus of New Era University (NEU) in Quezon City, Philippines. Present were the ministers, ministerial workers, and volunteer workers of the CFO Office, as well as the CFO overseers and Buklod presidents of the eight ecclesiastical districts in Metro Manila, namely, Caloocan North, CAMANAVA, Central, Makati, Maynila, Metro Manila East, Metro Manila South, and Quezon City.
During the book launching, Brother Charmil Castro of the CFO Office turned over copies of the book to Brother Lemuel Solano of the INC Library.
The holding of the INC Family Hour was organized by the Church Administration so that the parents will have opportune time in conveying to their godly advice and counsel. Each week, households inside the Church Of Christ conduct the INC Family Hour. During this family-oriented activity, parents gather their children at home, or online, and, between prayers, read the Family Hour message.
“This book will be a handy reference for each Christian family, providing counsel that contains only God’s will. The message contained will serve as a guide to all family members when making decisions in life,” said Brother Roderick Palisoc, CAMANAVA District CFO overseer.
“As a father, I will always refer to this book as I lead my own household,” said Frederick Acuzar, Buklod president from the same district. — With reports from INC News Section
