State minister for urban development and higher education, Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu on Tuesday said Nagas needed to produce more theologians to heal and change Naga society. He asserted that study of theology was vital in producing new personalities who could understand the art of forgiveness, do good and who could bring together human minds and actions. Addressing the first convocation service of Faith Theological Seminary (FTS), the minister said many negative things prevailed in Naga society and maintained that there was hope in the land when ‘more labourers are sent to harvest the field.’ He expressed hope that discipline of theology could heal the bleeding land, and correct the mistakes committed by the people. He urged the people to encourage study of theology and theological students who could influence and do good for the society. Altogether 20 students were conferred with degree and certificates during the programme, out of which seven finished Master of Divinity, 11 completed an extension course in Master of Divinity and two completed their Bachelor of Theology. Angunuo Soliezuo received an award for the best in thesis writing, Vesetalü Tetseo and Tsalonglee Sangtam were awarded for Best Academicians, Soyhunlp Kath for all rounder, Chekhwuveyi Khesoh and Neichüriezo Chücha for the best term paper. A valedictory message was delivered by Rev. Dr. Phuveyi Dozo, director, overseas Crusade and Founder-president, MRC Dimapur; while songs, prayer of commission and speeches were the other highlights of the programme.
