New beginnings. New chapters. New possibilities. Great hope. This morning, this afternoon and tomorrow morning 24 people are being ordained and launched into new ministries in this diocese.
- When I last visited Hands of Compassion School (HoC) in Ndola, Zambia, back in 2010, a bore-hole was being dug in order that the school could have its own water supply. I remember the afternoon well.
- In a court in Lueneburg (Northern Germany) last month, 81 year old Eva Kor gave a chilling account of the horror she, and her twin sister Miriam, experienced in Auschwitz, where they were used as objects for experiments by Dr Josef Mengele.
- This year we will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of our partnerships with Kondoa and Mpwapwa dioceses in Tanzania. However, this year of celebration will be very challenging for our brothers and sisters in Kondoa and Mpwapwa as the winter rains have been very poor.
- The Archbishop of Tanzania (Bishop Jacob of Mpwapwa) and Revd.Dr.Susan Durber, Theology Co-ordinator for Christian Aid will be the key-note speakers at 'Challenging Poverty: Celebrating Humanity - Partnership for Change' on Saturday 9th May, 10am - 4pm, at Trinity School, Belvedere.
