Africa on its own.

The African conferences can't have it both ways. They can't on one hand demand high levels of support from the US and then on the other hand ask us to endorse discrimination. I don't see continuing to uphold unjust policies on the continent that literally get people hurt and in some cases killed to maintain church unity. Maybe if they insist on maintaining their way of life they should also figure out how to pay for their Bishops and Pastors and education systems as well.

Notable Quotes   


   "My wish is that, one day, formal education will pay attention to the education of the heart, teaching love, compassion, justice, forgiveness, mindfulness, tolerance and peace. This education is necessary, from kindergarten to secondary schools and universities. I mean social, emotional and ethical learning. We need a worldwide initiative for educating heart and mind in this modern age."

 – HH The Dalai Lama, interviewed in the Los Angeles Times


    "[Author Vincent Strudwick] reimagines church as catalyst, transfiguring an egoistic society back to an altruistic one, celebrating a God who is as weak as water, but as irresistible as a river. Decisions should be taken at the lowest possible grass-roots level, dialogue superseding proclamation, and embodiment replacing autocracy.

– The Rt. Rev. David Wilbourne, Assistant Bishop of Llandaff in the Church of England, reviewing Strudwick's book: "The Naked God: Wrestling for a Grace-ful Humanity" in Church Times.
