Monthly Reflection by
Prayer of the Month
On 2 August 2002, Divine launched daily telecasts of gospel programmes in English titled "Streams of Grace" and Malayalam "Vachanadeepthi". Going by the massive response to the programmes, it is clear that God is inspiring our venture. Each programme lasts 30 minutes - that includes a 17-minute preaching slot. The remaining time is given to contemporary presentations of gospel songs and testimonies. Highlights of the special events held at Divine, such as the youth retreats, Christmas and Easter celebrations are broadcast frequently. The success of media is in the effectiveness of conveying an experience. Ministering the Word in Divine is focused on an experience of the Word "that we have touched and experienced." (1 John 1:1-4)
Jesus commissioned His Disciples to, "Go to all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." (Mark 16:15) This vision - of bringing the light of the gospel and the comfort of Christ to the whole world - was entrusted to the church. With the coming of the electronic media, this mission of the church gains a whole new dimension – to reach every person and every home across the globe through television. This prophetic call has urged the Divine Retreat Centre to commit itself wholeheartedly to the proclamation of the gospel with Divine TV - the television wing of Divine Vision Network (DVN) Divine TV first went on air in the UK, Europe and the Middle East on 24 December, 2008. This was quickly followed by the launch of Divine Vision Network in USA and Canada on 25th May 2009. There is a great demand from the rest of the world to be able to watch Divine TV, the 24-hour commercial-free television channel of Divine Vision Network (DVN) part of DRC, the world's largest Catholic retreat centre.
