Notes
"Bishop Isaac Stringer (1866-1934) left extensive documentation of his life and times in daily journals, letters, films and photographs. Historian Frank Peake wrote a biography of Stringer in 1966 entitled, 'The Bishop Who Ate His Boots'. Now 40 years later, Isaac Stringer's grandson, Richard Stringer (1944-2007), has left behind a documentary celebrating his grandfather's legacy as a pioneer missionary." "The film tells the story of Isaac and Sadie [Stringer], seamlessly interweaving the narrative with interviews with historians and personal contacts, shots of Richard Stringer doing research, and use of original photographs and footage from Isaac Stringer himself".

Notes
The Council for Social Service (CSS) was established in 1915 and existed until 1969 when it "was succeeded by the Social Action Unit (National and World Program) during the reorganization of General Synod departments in 1969". The Lending Library of the Council was mentioned in annual reports of the Council as of 1923. "The General Synod Archives has fourteen catalogues printed by the CSS, dating from 1929 to 1963, but not specific circulation records. The catalogues capture the changes in focus of concern over the years". "In an attempt to consolidate the use of funds and space, the CSS library was amalgamated with the libraries of the General Board of Religious Education (GBRE) and the Missionary Society of the Church of England in Canada (MSCC) when the Church House central library was established in 1965, on the condition that the library remain a lending library. Approximately 700 of the 900+ volumes in the CSS library were absorbed into the Church House library, which did remain a lending library at first, but the demand dwindled in the following years until it stopped. The books weeded out went to students or book dealers. No record was kept of what happened to the CSS library books after the amalgamation".

Notes
"'Lety's Gift' is the story of Lety's daughter, Sophie Hawkins, who was born in northern Newfoundland. Orphaned at an early age, Sophie suffers abuse from successive caregivers. She discovers that she has a psychic gift that is viewed as a curse rather than a blessing and eventually leads to he breakdown. Sophie's psychiatrist ... facilitates her healing from her traumatic childhood, enables her to use her gift of prophecy and healing, and becomes her spiritual mentor, inspiring her to go into the Anglican priesthood where she succeeds in becoming a bishop". "In both novels ['Passup Point' and 'Lety's Gift'], Coralie Hughes Jensen captures the desolate beauty of Newfoundland and Labrador and introduces us to the culture and the economic realities. He novels are full of contemporary church issue with which Anglicans can identify."
