  • Congratulations Egypt - a message from Bishop Mouneer

    4 July 2013

    "At last, Egypt is now free from the oppressive rule of the Muslim Brotherhood! The Armed Forces took the side of the millions of Egyptians who demonstrated in the streets since the 30th of June against President Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood. The Armed Forces responded to the invitation of the people to intervene and force the President to step down at the request of the people of Egypt." more»

  • Clergy in the Diocese of Port Moresby have been discussing the rise of violence

    13 May 2013

    Anglican clergy in the Diocese of Port Moresby have been discussing the rise of violence in PNG society and the harm it is causing to individuals, families and communities. The starting point for our reflection was Genesis 1.27: “So God created human beings, making them like himself. He created them male and female”. The fundamental point is the equal value to God of male and female. This means that the basic call to everyone is to respect the God-given life of each other. No respect is shown in rape and murder, by violence towards women, by cruel treatment of children or by victimization of vulnerable people. The call to respect each other means that we must all say “no to violence” in all its forms. more»

  • Request for guitars and/or guitar strings

    18 March 2013

    Music and singing is at the very heart of Christians, especially those in the Pacific. And so when I go to Samoa next month I will take a guitar and lots of spare strings. I like to leave both strings and guitar with a local church. Does anyone if they have a guitar hiding in the cupboard or under the bed unused? If so, would you kindly donate it to Anglican Missions so I can take it over there? Do you have lots of guitar strings which you have accumulated over the years? I would love to take them as well. These gifts are so so appreciated by the local church musicians. I thank you in anticipation! - Mike (PS I need them by April 2nd) more»

    "Egypt is like a patient recovering from a surgery. The body is still struggling to survive. We will have to wait and see what happens. Right now there is no clear vision or road map for the future. The Muslim Brotherhood spoke about a big project called “Revival” but no one knows this project, what are the implications, the goals, the aims, etc… It is very cloudy at the moment. But, however, we should say, that we have hope because we are in the hands of the Lord and He is in charge and He is in control." link»

With the coming of the rains it became a whole series of muddy pools. Our enterprising staff dug it up a bit more to make a high path on one side so that pedestrians, cyclists and motorbikes can get past without going through the mud – provided they don't veer off the high path. link»

  • Creative signwriting – a peek at life through signs and billboards

    26 September 2012

    “After the rather “heavy” content of the previous blog post, it is time to lighten up a bit and share with you some amusing signs I have come across since coming to Cambodia. Most of them feature some rather “creative” English, shown here for your amusement, with no intention of being derogoratory. I probably frequently use equally “creative” Khmer and the locals are very patient and long-suffering with me! So, please fasten your seat belt, ensure your cellphone is turned off or in flight mode, your seat is upright and your tray table is stowed, – and prepare to take off – to Phnom Penh, Battambang and Siem Reap…. for a unique look at aspects of Khmer life portrayed through interesting signs I have seen while out and about in these places.” link»
