The Malabar Independent Syrian Church

Its amazing what you find when you take a stroll down the information superhighway... I followed a link from Jonny Baker's blog to the website of the Malabar Independent Syrian Church - an Indian church based in Thozhiyur, Thrichur District, Kerala, South India. Their roots lie way back in the time when Christianity came to India in 52AD and St Thomas came to Kerala. Apparently, he founded 7 churches and died in Madras.

Anyway, this delights me... an Indian Christian tradition that isn't an import from the West. Its great to think of the church as being universal and for all. Check it out here: Link
