Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.
Luke 6: 37-38

Mission dedication service

Monday's speaker was Revd Philip Swan, Director of World Mission in the Diocese of Lichfield.
I will just share the key points of his message!
We are so preoccupied with our little corner that we forget our brothers and sisters in Christ in the rest of the world.  
The Christ we share.

Be surprised to what God has installed for us! God is so much bigger than we can imagine. 
The Son is…the firstborn over all creation…..
He is before all things, and in him all things hold together……
Through him to reconcile to himself all things…..
‘It takes a whole world to know the whole Christ’. Max Warren, former leader of the Church Mission Society.
We need each other’s vision to correct, enlarge and focus our own; only together are we complete in Christ.

One question:  what is the average age of a typical Anglican worldwide? 
Answer 31

Posted 28 November                              
The Average Anglican black, female, under 30, has 3 children, lives 
on 2 dollars a day, walks 3km for water, is related 
to someone with HIV/AIDS, and is evangelical...
As an Anglican in England I found this a 
fascinating comment on the development 
of Anglicanism.

Has anyone any comments?

Thank you,


We have dicocesan links throughout the world, first our link with Mecklenburg within the new context of the Northern Church of Germany, then 
other links further away, Matlosane, South Africa, West Malaysia, Kuching and Singapore in South East Asia and Qu’Appelle, Canada.
These partnerships can help us to engage in fresh ways with:

Mosul is empty;
Basrah is empty;
Baghdad is empty…

We are now facing the extinction of Christianity as a religion and as a culture from Mesopotamia.

The Prayer of Thanksgiving
 Is the Father with us?
 He is.
 Is Christ among us?
 He is.
 Is the Spirit here?
 He is.
 This is our God.
 Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
