Sudan students return to strengthen their new country
From CMS's Mission Update newsletter
Six Sudanese graduates of Carlile College in Nairobi are helping usher in a brighter future for the world’s newest nation, thanks to generous gifts from CMS supporters.
All six, from the Maridi and Malakal dioceses, received higher diplomas in theology as part of the Sudanese Student Programme at Carlile College. They have since returned to South Sudan, equipped for various ministries.
After years of war and now with South Sudan’s independence, these graduates have a huge task. “They have an opportunity to contribute to the goal of equipping the church in South Sudan for transformational mission and holistic discipleship,” said Rev Daniel Eunyalata Emoru, who oversees the Sudanese programme at Carlile. Titus Morris, one of the graduates from Maridi, agrees: “South Sudan becoming in Sudan Students Return to Strengthen their New Country dependent has opened a great door for me in transforming my local community. The training… has expanded my knowledge and skills, and enabled me to grow in my service to God and the church. My sincere appreciation to CMS and other donors who have faithfully supported us during the four years of studies.”
“Putting on the graduation regalia and being commissioned is a dream I never thought would become a reality,” said Alex Amvuti, also from Maridi. “I am confident now because of the knowledge and the practical experience I have gained to be a good teacher and preacher of the word of God. I hope to continue training other leaders, especially the young people. It is a great, great joy because the gospel makes a tremendous difference in people’s lives. I praise the Almighty God for the support CMS gave….”
While in college the students served in Sudanese congregations in Nairobi. During breaks, they returned to Sudan to provide much-needed discipleship workshops for other leaders. Since 2006, CMS has enabled more than a dozen Sudanese students to attend Carlile College for mission training, believing that a stronger church in Sudan will lead to a transformed society.

CREED Ireland launches resources to help churches honour vision
From Church of Ireland Gazette
With the recession proving a challenge for local churches as much as for any other part of the community, it is very difficult, in the present economic climate, for some congregations not only to keep themselves inspired by an outreach vision but also to find the money to pay for its implementation. It was with these challenges in mind that CREED Ireland recently produced 'Pro-VISION', a new and easy-to-use resource for the local church.
CREED Ireland was formed in 2006 as a charitable organisation by a group of people with particular expertise in helping churchers and organisations to grow; be more effective in promoting faithl and reach out to, and impact on, their local community.
Pro-VISION recognises that it can be difficult for churches to stay motivated to serve and engage with local community needs, whilst struggling to meet their own running costs - with the result that vision can often by stifled. Pro-VISION is a creative resource to help churches not only rise successfully to the financial challneges of today but also engage creatively with the needs of local communities, whilst still identifying and realising their vision.
Simon Brown, the secretary of CREED, said: "We have been ecouraged by the support of senior Church leaders to develop Pro-VISION and believe it will be a resource to help churches find the means to make even more difference in their communities."
CREED is inviting expressions of interest from churches and organisations which might wish to participate in this programme from spring 2012.

***********A Silent Revolution among Pakistani youth
From The Frontier News, Diocese of Peshawar, Church of Pakistan
The Youth Desk of the Peshawar Diocese has launched a Career Counseling Programme for the young Christian students. It provides guidelines to the young students, how to choose respective subjects for their planned future profession or career.
It has been over a decade now that a silent educational revolution is in progress among the young Christian students, thus, a large number of students have started reaching the higher educational levels. Since their parents are mostly uneducated, or less educated, so they lack proper guidance from their parents. Keeping in view the situation, the Diocesan Youth Desk has taken the initiative to provide a proper Career Counseling Programme.
This year, the Career Counseling Programme was organized on 29 September 2011, at the Diocesan Centre, Peshawar with the collaboration of Pakistan Fellowship of Evangelical Students (PFES). About 150 young students from various Christian schools and colleges attended this programme, and received proper guideline for their future studies, regarding their Career.
The Rt. Revd. Humphrey S. Peters, in his inspiring opening address quoted references from the Holy Bible, and advised the youngsters to work hard to achieve their goals in life, as their personal development will contribute to the country's development. “Live a life in the fear of God, and the Fear of God is the beginning of knowledge”, he further added.
The young experts and professionals from various fields were invited as speakers/facilitators to inspire and motivate the youth to come forward and, to work hard to achieve their set targets in life.
The Diocesan Youth Officer, Mr. Insar Gohar in his concluding remarks said that we encourage the students to study hard for whatever field/career they have chosen for their future. “Thus, dedication, sincerity and honesty are the key to success. As the Word of God says, “If you are honest in less, God will make you in charge of many things,” he added.
In the end, the organizers thanked all the participants for making this programme a success. The participants also applauded for the Speakers/Facilitators, the Peshawar Diocese and the PFES for their kind support.
The administrators of different schools asked the Diocesan Youth Desk to organize this kind of programmes more often, and if possible, organize these activities in their own schools/colleges, where a large number of students could be reached and inspired.
The programme ended with the closing remarks and prayer by the Archdeacon S. P. Asghar, who appreciated this wonderful effort of the Diocesan Youth Desk and PFES. He said that we need to organize this kind of activities on regular basis. And he blessed both the participants and the organizers.
Clergy Denies Blackmailing Ebonyi Govt
Aliuna Godwin, The Moment
Nigeria — Following the controversy that trailed the recent peaceful protest staged by the Anglican Church Abakaliki Diocese, Bishop of the church, Rt.Rev.Benson Onyibor, said the protest was not targeted against state as was wrongly misunderstood by the governor, rather against all satanic vices that have enveloped the country.
Speaking to newsmen in Abakaliki, he said that the rally was purely evangelical and not political and was not the first time that such rally was organised in the state.
The bishop opined that the message of the rally was that people of Ebonyi State should embrace Christ and shun wickedness and witchcraft, 'it was a spiritual exercise and should not be misinterpreted by anybody or organisation.' he emphasised.
According to him 'Anglican Church in Ebonyi has been supportive and will remain law abiding and by no means can we become agent of controversy and lawlessness in the society'.
He accused the press of either being against the government, the Anglican Church in Ebonyi state or against both the institutions which he claimed was the demon the church was sweeping away.
He reminded newsmen that the Anglican Church is led Episcopally and therefore advised them to seek audience with him when they do not understand clearly issues of controversy.
Neema Crafts couple Andy and Susie Hart lose home in blaze
We heard today, Friday, from Andy and Susie Hart, CMS mission partners with Ruaha Diocese in Iringa, Tanzania, that their house was partly burnt down on Thursday 3 November.The cause of the fire is suspected to be an electrical fault.
Andy and Susie, who lead Neema Crafts, were in Dar es Salaam with daughters Grace and Rosie at the time of the fire, so are safe. No one was injured during the fire which destroyed the office, sitting room and part of the roof.
This is the latest report from Susie, received on Friday afternoon:
"At 10am yesterday as we were setting off towards Dar es Salaam from Moshi in the north of Tanzania (en route from a CMS conference in Nairobi the day before) we received a phone call from Ben and Katy [Ray, fellow CMS mission partners at Neema Crafts] to say that our house was on fire. The office, snug/guest room and living room were fully ablaze, but miraculously the local fire engine had arrived on the scene relatively quickly and, even more miraculously, had come with water in its tanks, so after about an hour they were able to put out the blaze.
"We spoke to the police officer at the scene who said they thought it was an electrical fault that had started it, probably in the office. The net result is that we have lost the entire contents of our office, our snug/guest room and some of our living room. The former two rooms have completely lost their roofs and have huge cracks in the walls. The living room ceiling has gone, all the roof trusses and metal roofing sheets will have to be replaced, and all the wiring has been burnt up, making the house uninhabitable. The front door was completely burnt up, leaving only the hinges, and the windows have all broken in the heat. To add to the problem, the rainy season has come early, and we have no roof.
"We have lost everything in our office including our computer, all Andy's veterinary equipment and microscope, all my art materials, paintings and sketchbooks, textile materials and all the tools of my trade that I have built up over a life-time, many books and publications, all our archive material of press cuttings etc for our work here over the last 10 years, family scrap books and other irreplaceable items which had a lot of memories tied up in them, plus all our videos, our television, a bed and many other pieces of furniture.
"We may have lost all our family photos and videos of the last 10 years as well, as they were all saved on the computer (now gone) and a portable hard-drive, which was soaked by the firemen. We still hope this may dry out however and would ask you to pray for this, thank you. We are extremely grateful that the contents of our bedrooms, most of the kitchen and dining area and some of the living room have amazingly survived with only water and smoke damage, and a little singeing in places.
"We ourselves have yet to see the damage first hand as we were so far away when it started. We initially decided to head straight for Iringa, but as it is a 16-hour drive from Moshi and our car was rocking violently from side to side we ended up going to Dar, just nine hours away instead. The car is now being fixed. We long to go back to Iringa but Katy and Ben have repeatedly informed us that there is nothing we can do there. They have been amazing. They've boarded up the house and organised guards - although already today someone tried to steal our water tank. News travels very fast of something like this and a few people will realise there are opportunities to benefit, so we would really appreciate your prayers for security of what is left.
"Once the car is fixed we will stay in Dar until Tuesday, much as we long to go 'home', because we are meeting two senior members of the royal family at the British High Commission on Tuesday, and I am one of the people being introduced and then introducing him to everyone else in the group. Everyone feels that it's best we stay for this since we are representing Neema, and there is nothing we can do at home now, but it is hard to stay when our house back home is in ruins. Please pray for us to have peace, and get safely home as soon as possible on Wednesday (another nine hours' drive). We feel saddest about the fact that we won't be able to live in our house again before we go, and that we didn't get the chance to say goodbye to it as it was. This is a great loss psychologically for all of us, but we thank God that we were not hurt, nor anyone else, and know that he is in control.
We will stay with Ben and Katy for a few days on our return, and then move into a small cottage in a friend's garden (the Philips family at Kibebe) until we return to the UK. We hope this will be a healing place to be whilst we sort through the ruins of our house and pack up what is left to bring back to the UK. We heard today from Ben that rebuilding the burnt out rooms, replacing the ceilings, roof and wiring, doors and re-painting will cost around £7–8,000. If anyone would like to help with anything towards this we would greatly appreciate it as it is a diocesan house, there was no fire insurance, and we know they do not have the funds to fix it as they are really struggling financially at the moment.
Thank you for your prayers, we are all very upset at the moment but we will come to terms with it and we know that we have been very blessed not to have lost more.
God bless you,
Susie and Andy"

[Editor's note: Neema Crafts Centre was founded in 2003 by the Diocese of Ruaha, to provide handi-crafts training and much-needed employment opportunities for people with disabilities in the Iringa region of Tanzania, and to change negative attitudes towards them in local society. There’s a great stigma attached to having a disability in Tanzania, and the centre provides dignity and hope for many people who previously relied on street begging or were hidden away at home, unable to support themselves and their families. Neema is place of creativity, compassion and hope where lives are transformed everyday. The centre also includes a physiotherapy unit for disabled children, an award winning cafe entirely staffed by deaf people, a welcoming guest house which is the first in the world to be run by people with disabilities, a conference room and internet cafe.]
Formal consultation begins on reorganisation of West Yorkshire dioceses
From the Church of England website
The Dioceses Commission has begun the formal consultation phase of its proposals for the Yorkshire dioceses with the publication of a Draft Dioceses of Bradford, Ripon and Leeds and Wakefield Reorganisation Scheme. Consultation on the Draft Scheme will run until 30 April, 2012 and follows consideration of more than 140 written responses to the Commission's initial vision for the Yorkshire dioceses in its December 2010 report.
"There has been a general welcome for the main thrust of our proposals," said Prof Michael Clarke, who chairs the Dioceses Commission, "namely the dissolution of the existing dioceses of Bradford, Ripon & Leeds and Wakefield, and the creation of a new diocese in their place. Our vision of a new diocese more aligned to today's communities, with reconfigured episcopal ministry closer to the parishes, and a streamlined administration, has clearly struck chords with many. We have nevertheless listened carefully to what we have been told and our Draft Reorganisation Scheme includes a number of important changes."
After careful reflection on the responses to the first report, the Commission has accepted the consensus view that the new diocese should be called Leeds (rather than Wakefield) and that it may also be known informally as the Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales. The diocese would, as originally proposed, be configured with five episcopal areas.
The three cathedrals of Bradford, Ripon and Wakefield will be retained with equal status; but the Scheme leaves open the possibility of a future Bishop of Leeds giving Leeds Parish Church 'Pro-cathedral' status.
Some parishes not in West or North Yorkshire that might have moved to neighbouring dioceses will now definitely remain in the new diocese.
In most other respects the Commission has confirmed its original thinking as set out in its earlier report. There have been a range of responses on some aspects and the Commission will welcome further comments on these and the proposals as a whole over the next six months. This current draft reorganisation scheme can be amended in the light of further submissions.
"We recognise the short term uncertainties created within the three dioceses by our proposals," said Prof Michael Clarke. "This is an inevitable consequence of change of this kind, but we want to keep these to a minimum. We welcome the establishment by the three bishops' councils of a Preparation Group, which will enable the clergy and people of the prospective new diocese, with their staff, to shape its future by filling in all of the details that can only be decided locally."
Alongside the detailed draft scheme, the Commission has published its latest explanatory report; a statement of the effect of the proposals on the mission of the Church of England; and a financial estimate for the changes. The financial estimate indicates that the new diocese could, within five years, cost about £0.8 million a year less than keeping the current diocesan structure. The Commission is clear that its work is mission-led and not finance-driven.
This formal consultation period will run for six months until 30 April, 2012. The Commission will then produce a final draft scheme for consideration by the relevant diocesan synods before it is debated by the General Synod. The earliest the scheme could come into effect would be late 2013 to early 2014.

Bishops’ Training School Holds At Ibru Centre
From the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion)'s Facebook page
The Bishops’ Training School (Batch ‘B’) of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), comprising 19 bishops and their wives was held at the Ibru International Ecumenical Centre, Agbarha-Otor, Delta State on October 17-29.
The two-week event was presided by Rt. Rev. Ken Okeke and his wife, Ngozi Okeke, an experienced missionary, was the chairman of the Church of Nigeria Missionary Society (CNMS) for several years.
The Bishop said the aim of the school is to train and equip new bishops so that they would gain confidence in leading God’s people in their dioceses.
The curriculum of the school included personality and skills audit, seminar on Millennium Development Goals, Canon Law/Constitution/Pastoral Formation, Information & Communications Technology, Pastoral Care, Seminar on Ministry Issues, Global Anglican Relations, Seminar on Self-Reliance, Mission Statement, Vision Statement and Goal Setting and Evaluation.
Resource persons at the training were Rt. Rev. Tunde Popoola (Bishop of the Diocese of Offa), Rt. Rev. Bright Ogu (Retired Bishop of the Diocese of Mbaise), Rt. Rev. James Oladunjoye (Bishop of the Diocese of Owo), Rt. Rev. David Onuoha (Bishop of Diocese of Okigwe South), Very Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Ekpunobi (Provost, Diocese on the Niger) and Sir. Afam Anene (Director, National Orientation Agency, Abuja).
In a Communion Service at St. Peter’s Chapel in the Centre, Bishop Anthony Nkwoka of Niger West called on worshippers to have faith in God and help others. Quoting from Heb. 11:1-2, he said the Church should focus on active faith and love that would lead us to heaven.
Those who assisted in the service, which was presided by Rt. Rev. Geoffrey Chukwunyenye, were Bishop Kwashi of Zonkwa Diocese; Rector of the Centre, Ven. Ernest Onuoha, and the Chaplain, Rev. Canon Gabriel A. Kpagban.
Bishops and their wives also found time to pray for the leadership of the nation and for the Church to grow.
It is expected that the training will make the bishops and their wives more focused, effective, experienced and sensitive to the calling of God.

A Savage Call – reflections on living with a chronic condition
The year 2003 was a turning point in my life on two levels. It was the year I was accepted for ordination training with the Diocese in Europe within the Church of England; it was also the year when I had my first attacks of vertigo caused by problems with the inner ear. For about a year and a half after the autumn of 2003 I had three acute attacks of spinning, projectile vomiting and severe unsteadiness which put me in bed for a number of weeks each, and by the beginning of 2005 this had settled into a chronic sense of imbalance with fluctuating severity ranging from not being able to stand up to just having some very strange sensations in my head.
Doctors tell me that irreparable nerve damage has taken place and I now consider this as a disability which prevents me from travelling more than 20 minutes in the car (on a good day) and which means part of each day must be spent lying down. This affects quality of family and social life and the working out of my ministry as a priest.
The firming up of my sense of vocation and the onset of this condition have run concurrently from the start. I have spent just as much time exploring the nature of God and questions of theodicy as I have exploring treatments (of which there have been around 25). To date I have not found a medical treatment or alternative therapy which alters my symptoms at all.
However, through the struggle and times of despair, I have discovered God, encountered Jesus Christ and been strengthened and inspired by the Holy Spirit. All this through reading the Bible, scouring the Gospels for the healing passages; through learning about stillness and meditation; through engaging in honest discussion with one or two close friends who can enter into the darkness of suffering with me; and through a huge amount of reading about other people’s experiences. I have gained a depth of spiritual awareness that I had never dreamed of and know I could not attain without the vulnerability and openness that chronic illness can engender. This has all been lived out in the context of struggle (perhaps the key word of my situation) - as one wise clergy friend said to me “you have a savage call to contemplation.”
In the rest of this article, I would like to focus on what I have learned about God and on a couple of points of reflection which have been significant for me. My starting points will be insights from my reading. One of the first books I read about suffering was Margaret Spufford’s ‘Celebration – a story of suffering and joy’, which pleased me with its graphic and sometimes brutal descriptions of the pain of severe early onset osteoporosis. At one point the author describes the extreme agony of collapsed vertebrae at the same time as her discovery of the presence of Christ with her: “…at that moment of unreachability, I had suddenly been aware even as I screamed, of the presence of the Crucified. He did not cancel the moment, or assuage it, but was inside it.” I am someone who likes confronting darkness and I have not sought gentle reassuring books to read. Neither have I only read the comforting gospel passages, but have readily engaged with times when Jesus experienced pain or sadness, for example when hearing of the death of his dear friend Lazarus, or in the Garden of Gethsemane when he realized how alone he was. These times of struggle for Jesus give us hope that he will be with us in our own times of struggle and will redeem them with his love.
People have sometimes said to me “But Jesus never had cancer!” or “Jesus never had dementia!” Sometimes I have even said to myself “Jesus never had a balance disorder!” That can be a disquieting question – how can Jesus be present in experiences that he simply never had during his earthly life as a male Jew in first-century Palestine? Something I read recently helped me to understand this on a much deeper level. ‘In Age Reborn, by Grace Sustained’ by Sister Thelma-Anne, SSJD, is an account of her own struggles with Parkinson’s disease. At a retreat led by Margaret Silf, who has written many books on Ignatian spirituality, Sister Thelma-Louise was struck by this idea: “…though Jesus was restricted to one particular set of circumstances in his human life – for example, he did not know what is to be a woman, to be married, to be old and infirm – he wants to experience and redeem all these circumstances through the life of each one of us, and will do so if we are willing….(thus he will) take into his consciousness yet another aspect of human life.” As I read that I inwardly shouted ‘Wow!’ and took several days to let it sink into my mind. Jesus can somehow take my life lived with a miserable chronic condition and redeem it by letting it become part of himself – my situation matters to him and he wants to experience it with me!
Maybe this offers us an approach for the healing ministry of the Church too, as well as a helpful insight into personal situations. One of my favourite Gospel passages about healing is the one about the woman who had suffered bleeding for twelve years and who braved the jostling crowd to touch the edge of touch Jesus’ cloak. Jesus feels the power leave him, the woman is healed instantly, and Jesus looks around in search of the person who had touched him. She came forward and told him her story and his words to her are: “My daughter, your faith has made you well.”
Penny Roker, RSM, in her book “At Home with God” writes of that moment of power leaving Jesus and the woman being healed like this: “She had spent twelve years feeing her life drain away: now Jesus took that feeling from her and experienced it personally. Such empathy is rarely known by human beings, except perhaps by parents. Often a mother or father may cry out, ‘If only I could bear this instead’, for this is the child they brought into the world and love more than their own life. How else do we imagine God feels towards us? How else would he respond to our pain but as a father to his child? ‘My daughter,’ Jesus said to the woman…”
The healing ministry in our churches must focus on empathy, the presence of Jesus with us, and his love which redeems all situations of pain and suffering. Sometimes I am asked what I think about not having been physically healed and I have found it quite hard to articulate a reply. Recently I have been pondering Jesus’ words as reported in Matthew’s gospel: “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Lately I have been thinking that these are verses to encourage and hearten all those who struggle, those who are not healed in the physical sense, and those who sometimes despair, for they assure us that Jesus draws close and shares our struggles and pain. For some of us that is healing enough.

For those of you who missed it first time around...
By Caroline Chartres, a regular contributor to the Church press. She is married to the Bishop of London. They live in London with their four children.
The Anglican church has been no stranger to controversy during its history but the debates raging at the moment are among the hottest it has known. This book asks some prominent Anglicans why they are still in the church and what they love about it. Representing Anglicanism in all its range and diversity, the contributors are positive about the church and their place in it, and show appreciation, rather than resentment, of a Church that is broad enough to contain those of opposing views. This is a personal, partial and affectionate (though by no means uncritical) glimpse of the Anglican Church.Table of Contents
"...this is an aspirational and comforting book. At a time of some dissension in Anglicanism, it is well that we be reminded of the virtues of the Church of England. And to know that we are not alone, personally and communally, in our struggles and uncertainties."
