Book Dedication for ‘Boundless Blessing’ by Rev. Shanlian

A book dedication service was held on Saturday evening, November 19, 2022 at Armenian Evangelical Brethren Church (AEBC) to celebrate the publication of Rev. Dikran Shanlian’s latest book, Անսահման Օրհնութիւն (Boundless Blessing). The Church Council published this latest volume in commemoration of “Pari Lour” Newsletter’s 30th Anniversary. The evening began in the AEBC sanctuary with welcoming words and a prayer by Rev. Joseph Matossian. Sevag Shanlian then gave an overview of the 30 years of the “Pari Lour” publication, paying special tribute to Dan Doctorian who printed the newsletter for many years, as well as Pastor Shanlian’s first book in 2000.

The book was presented in depth by Linda Meguerditchian, Ph.D. After which, Liza Jiguerian Manoyan, the editor, read a passage from the book. Then Mr. Mike Youssefian was invited to the podium to share reflections on the new publication. He praised the work of the author and stressed the necessity to read this book and benefit from its spiritual truths, making special emphasis on the need to preserve and utilize the Armenian language. He then led a prayer of dedication with Rev. Shanlian at the podium. After some words of thanks by the author himself, the Minister to the AEUNA, Rev. Hendrik Shanazarian, gave a few remarks about Pastor Shanlian’s work and concluded with the benediction. The program also included two solos sung by Anna Stefanidi. A beautiful table spread was prepared by the ladies of the church during the refreshment hour in the social hall. Copies of Rev. Shanlian’s books were available for purchase and many had their books signed by the author. We praise God for seeing this project to its completion and pray that it would be a blessing to many. The book project has been sponsored by Mr. & Mrs. Harout and Maral Hagopian of West Hills, CA.
