Notes
"The wife of the Archbishop of Canterbury, a mother, a theologian and author, Jane Williams shares her vision for the Spouses Conference 2008 in this timely interview by the Editor [Jim Rosenthal]".
An interview with Jane Williams about a conference of approximately 30 bishops' wives, mainly from West Africa, organized by Maria Okrofi, wife of the Primate of the Church of the Province of West Africa. Looking forward to the upcoming Lambeth Conference, Ms. Williams said that "what we really want to look at is empowering and enabling the bishops' spouses to be doing the work that they actually are doing. One of the big things of the conference in Ghana that I hope to take on into the Spouses' Conference is this concept of the absolute unique value of each person's contribution".

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Easter 2000. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about the role of fathers in contemporary families and society. The issue describes "patriarchal societies where the position of the man as the head of the family in `non negotiable'," and Western societies where this is not the pattern. "Articles from Africa and India cite Biblical texts to underline the male head-ship of the family. They go on to reveal both the strengths and the weaknesses of such head-ship: when abused it can make the lives of women and children inescapably miserable. .... Throughout the Anglican Communion there is evidence of the dislocation of rapid change, often in part brought about by economic forces which undermine the role of men for example as `breadwinner' of the family."
Article notes that Canada, which is "the most water-rich nation on the Earth, can supply almost 122,000 cubic metres per person per year". "Even in a temperate climate, human beings require a litre of water each day, or 0.35 cubic meters per year, to sustain life".

Notes
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.
