Notes
The author, a priest in the Anglican Church of Canada, reviews the Christian, scripture-based commitment to creation and hence to environmental action. He describes the history and work of the Arocha Ecumenical Christian Conservation Centre [i.e. ARocha Christian Field Study Centre and Bird Observatory] at Cruzinha in southern Portugal which was founded by Peter Harris, a Church of England priest and member of BCMS. "The centre works with local environmental groups and is now managed by a local board. It welcomes visitors, mostly student groups coming to study the birds and plants of the Alvor estuary close to the centre. In addition to the work of Christian hospitality, the staff are actively involved in research." "[T]he Anglican Consultative Council is seeking to set up an Anglican Environmental Network. This work will be co-ordinated by the Rev. Canon Eric Beresford, Consultant for Ethics for the Anglican Consultative Council. Our hope is that the network will help Anglicans to work together and, with our ecumenical partners, to reflect something of God's love for all creation, and to promote more just and sustainable environmental practices."

Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Trinitytide 2004. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries assessing and looking back on "changes to family life over the decade" since the 1994 launch conference of the International Year of the Family in Malta. "The articles tell of the increasing number of single parent families and of projects to help them. Another development is the changing role of parents. In Africa, Myanmar and Sri Lanka, as well as in Western countries, some men are becoming more involved with the care of their children and more women are becoming breadwinners -- modifying the traditional demarcation of roles. The global nature of change is again highlighted in the article from Myanmar/Burma, which notes the pressures of modern technology on children, with videos and Superman replacing the transmission of values through storytelling. In Papua New Guinea, the influence of cultural change has resulted in improvements in education and literacy but also noted is an increase in violence within the family. In some countries, changes affecting families reflect the aftermath of civil violence. An article tells of the signs of hope in Rwanda, despite the horrors of the genocide. .... In Northern Ireland, too, there are signs of optimism despite the bitter legacy of the troubles. A major theme underlying many of the changes is the spread of HIV/AIDS. This was raised at the initial IYF [International Year of the Family] conference, but the extent and consequences of the pandemic have vastly intensified during the ten years, bringing heartbreak and poverty to many. The death toll affects all generations of the family, with grandparents having to care for orphans and losing the support of their children in their old age." "The final section of the newsletter tells of action taken by Governments to help families. A point made by many at the Malta conference was that Governments needed to recognise the importance of families as the basic unit of society and do more to help them. It is clear that further Government action is needed, but articles tell of steps forward.
