The Sonar community is known for their amazing creativity in the art of designing and producing beautiful gold jewelry. Their very name "Sonar" means gold. Many have done well financially. Some are money lenders or bankers. The younger Sonars are advancing in education which has given them more professional opportunities in other fields of work. Though most are Hindus, there are also many Sikhs among them. When given the opportunity many will present the attributes of their faith, and its historic origins going back to the birth of their first Sikh guru, Nanak Dev, in 1469.
The majority of Sikh Sonars take pride in their religion and do not see any reason to change. These words from a Sonar Sikh illustrate this, "Our religion is so beautiful! The best part of Sikhism is it doesn't tell you that you that you have to read a book and then become Sikh. It's about the way you live!"
Patience and time are needed for Christ followers to talk with Sikh Sonars to lead them to knowing God and wonderful teachings of Jesus as found in the Bible.
"But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you." 1 Peter 3:14-15
Pray for the Holy Spirit to give His words of wisdom to believers who share their faith to this people group.
Pray that Sikh Sonars would humble themselves to be open to the Lord. Pray for believers to go to them as Christ bearers. Pray for a movement to Christ among the Sonars in the 2020s.
