Notes
"The next secretary general of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon, is well known for his work in reconciliation between Muslims and Christians in Nigeria. But he is also no stranger to Canada. As an adjunct professor in Christian theology and Islam at Toronto's Wycliffe College, he visits Canada at least once a year to teach and preach. He also has close ties with St. Paul's Bloor Street in Toronto, which partners with his diocese of Kaduna in a farm project aimed at interfaith reconciliation in his region. Idowu-Fearon, 66, will take up the position in July [2015], succeeding Canon Kenneth Kearon, recently elected a bishop in Ireland. Coming from a conservative part of the Communion, Idowu-Fearon doesn't fit easily into the stereotype that some may have of Nigerian bishops. Viewed askance by some of his peers, he has been publicly criticized by his former primate, Peter Akinola, as being too close to the West. But he has also been dismissed as homophobic by some in North America". "In his new role as secretary general, Idowu-Fearon said he is looking forward to building bridges between the liberal and conservative ends of the Anglican Communion spectrum".

Notes
Two interviews concerning the [Anglican] Church of Nigeria. Siphiwe Sithole conducted the first interview with George Carey, Archbishop of Canterbury. Dr. Carey "has expressed hope that both government and religious leaders in Nigeria will work for better relations between Christians and Muslims. This sentiment came following his two-week visit, in February 2001, to the home of 15 million Anglicans in a country of 118 million people".
Anglican World editor, Canon James Rosenthal, interviewed Archbishop Peter Akinole, Primate of Nigeria, on 1 March 2001, just before the 2001 Primates' Meeting in Kanuga. The Archbishop spoke about a number of challenges facing the Church of Nigeria including: "the modern day emphasis on a prosperity gospel ... interfaith and what we can do together with other Christian people in the context of our nation ... [and] the potential the Church could reap from our youth".

"The release of 21 schoolgirls, held by Islamist terror group Boko Haram was welcomed, with 'delight, relief and optimism' by the Anglican Church of Nigeria. The 21 were amongst 276 students kidnapped from the north-eastern Nigerian town of Chibok in April 2014. A spokesman for Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari said that the Swiss government and the International Committee of the Red Cross had acted as mediators with Boko Haram. Talks are said to be on-going for the release of the remaining 83 girls who are still thought to be held by the group". [Text of entire article.]

Notes
Article describes the experience of a young woman, born in Yorkshire to a Muslim family who immigrated from India in the 1960s. "Miriam" left her family at the age of 17 to escape an arranged marriage and was taken in by an Indian family who had converted to Christianity from the Sikh faith. She advised her family through the police that she was safe. "She has been back to see her parents once with her husband and daughter, on the advice of the 'Church' but there can be no regular contact. Miriam said, 'You don't choose your natural family and we don't choose our spiritual family either. I have a new family now and it's the Church. I lost my identity when I left home, but I have found a new identity in Christ'." "According to one Nigerian priest, 'Joseph', Islam is a triangle of political, social and economic points, so when someone leaves Islam they lose everything. 'I'm not from a Muslim background, but we had a convert who lost everything when he left the Islamic faith,' he said". "Joseph has seen Christians suffer physically for their faith". "However, he said the persecution of Christians in the north had strengthened the faith of the younger people".

Notes
A description of the Anglican Church of Nigeria and the ten day visit of Episcopal Presiding Bishop, Frank Griswold, in January 2002. The Anglican Church of Nigeria "[a]t more than 18 million members ... is the fastest growing in the Communion yet experiences its growth in the midst of a very troubled nation". The country is torn by poverty, unemployment, government corruption and religious strife between Christians and Muslims. "Persecution is not the only threat to the church. The Archbishop's agenda targets another as well. `Over all these years the church in Africa has been overtly dependent on the financial support of the West. That is a big problem. People have been so used to that that they aren't even willing to think: "How can we be self-sufficient ? How can we be self-resourcing ?"' Self-sufficiency is important to Archbishop [Peter] Akinole"
