Indian Pastor Samuel Devasahayam of the Zion Gospel Church was devastated: his elder sister Sheela, a Mother Teresa-like figure who had devoted her life to serving those in need, had died at the age of 60 and the entire city of Erode – close to 7,000 people – had come out for the funeral.

All 3,000 of Samuel’s own community were in attendance as well, and the pastor knew he had to deliver the sermon of his life.
