The Easter Dawn Service by the Panna Lake is one of the most unique and majestically divine experiences than any other inside the Chapel/Church Services. The breaking of dawn in the dense Oak forest, chirping of birds, jumping of fishes in the Panna Lake and occasional bark of a deer is complete fulfillment of all the senses. And to sing the Hymn “How Great Thou Art’ amidst this back drop cannot be more relevant and spiritually uplifting.
The Easter Dawn service for this year was successfully conducted today by the Panna Lake Side Chapel. Nearly 300 people including the Estate/Ashram staff were present for the service. The service began at 5 am (sharp) with a candle lit procession from the Panna Lake Gate to the Chapel singing Hymns. Rev. Sanjay Ram Pastor- In- Charge Bhowali Methodist Church led the service. The message was delivered by Rev. Vinay Peters form Jabalbur (M.P). Rev. A. Dani District Superintendent of Nainital concluded the service with the closing prayer and benediction.
The service was followed by fellowship breakfast at the meadow adjoining the Panna Lake. But prior to the breakfast the children had great fun finding the beautifully painted boiled eggs in the field. The breakfast included Hot Cross Buns, Cake, Boiled eggs, Patties and Apple all contributed by neighboring institutes. A huge Bon Fire made people feel warm both in body and spirit. The whole program was over by 7.30 am.
