The final day of the 11th CAPA Council Meeting

The Most Rev. Bernard Ntahoturi continued reflections on the life of Peter from John 21 v 15-19 focusing on the “double call” of Jesus to follow and be trained by Him. Jesus transformed Peter from fisherman to shepherd and called him to servant leadership. As followers of Jesus we need to remain rooted in Christ through prayer and the Word of God and move outwards in self-giving love so that the lives of individuals, local Churches and local communities are impacted and strengthened.

The review of the CAPA Constitution was presented by the Rt. Rev. Trevor Mwamba from Botswana diocese, the Province of Central Africa. It was agreed that the current Constitution should remain in place so that further discussion can take place in the Provinces.

    Synod has now passed the following motion pretty much unanimously [with 344 for; 1 abstention]:
    [blockquote]That this Synod, gravely concerned at the desperate plight of Christian communities in parts of Nigeria, as described in GS 1861, request the British Government to do all it can to support those in Nigeria seeking to protect religious minorities of all faiths and enable them to practise their religion without fear.[/blockquote]

    Thanks, Pageantmaster.

    I’m glad you made us aware of it, and even more grateful that the General Synod could agree so heartily and almost unanimously on the motion in support of our sorely opressed and persecuted brethren in northern Nigeria. It is estimated that Muslim terrorists in Nigeria have killed about a thousand Christians in the last year. 1,000! Lord, have mercy.
