Attention : Diocesan Editors
The proposed strategic plan which goes to General Synod this month places a high priority on the church advocating for social justice.
How can this be done effectively ?
Experts on advocacy say that the church can have a voice in the corridors of power, but that the way advocacy has been practiced in the past may not be the most effective way to go about it.
In June, InterMission looks at advocacy -- how the church has done it in the past, and how it might approach it in the future.
InterMission is a page prepared monthly by the Communications Department of General Synod and published on the inside back cover of the Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican.

Attention: Diocesan Editors
What riches can be found in cultural diversity ?
Since the last General Synod, 17 Anglican parishes, from the Maritimes to British Columbia, have made a concerted effort to answer that question. For at least one parish, diversity has been a key to survival and growth. Several others have been forced to confront the "darker side" of multiculturalism -- racism and prejudice. To recognize that the problem exists and to begin to talk about it is often half the battle, they have found.
InterMission looks at the three-year-old Multicultural Parishes Project in April.

After a slow start in most parts of the world, the Ecumenical Decade of Churches in Solidarity with Women has seen major gains by women in several countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom. There have been major celebrations of the ministry of women.
Now into its second half, the decade has also prompted deep reflection by many in Canada about the meaning of `solidarity' and the benefits of drawing all of the church's constituency -- including men -- into the struggle to recognize the lives of women in the church.
Of equal concern to those involved in women's issues and in the ministry of women is that the advances and consciousness-raising that the Ecumenical Decade has prompted not come to an end once those 10 years are up.
In April, InterMission looks at what the Ecumenical Decade of Churches in Solidarity with Women has accomplished so far, and at what remains to be done.
InterMission is a page prepared monthly by the Information Resources Group of General Synod and published in the inside back cover of the Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican.

InterMission, the General Synod page in the Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican makes its debut in January, 1995, with an in-depth look at what it is like to be posted in dangerous places on behalf of the church.
You will meet the Rev. John Steele and his family, recently returned from Burundi and the Rev. Oge Beauvoir, his wife, and their children, who serve in Haiti.
The article also looks at staff of the national church who travel to politically troubled places as part of their jobs -- whether it be monitoring the plight of refugees or investigating human rights situations.
InterMission also examines two partner relationships the Canadian church is involved in, through short interviews with Bishop Charles Mwaigoga of South West Tanganyika, and Obispo Maximo Alberto Ramento of the Philippine Independent Church.
InterMission, as of January, 1995, will be a regular feature in the Anglican Journal. The page will focus at [sic] the work of General Synod, as reflected in lay and ordained ministry.
InterMission is produced by the Communications Department of General Synod and published on a page donated for that purpose by the Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican.

Nov. 2, 1994 -- The January edition of the Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican will signal the launching of a new page produced by General Synod Communications.
The mandate of the page, entitled InterMission and located on the inside back cover of the newspaper, is to present the vital work of General Synod -- your ministry.
InterMission will focus on one particular aspect of that work every month, through a feature article. Over time, we hope to depict a substantial cross-section of the work that General Synod does, both domestically and overseas.
As well several shorter items each month will bring you up to date on on-going stories related to General Synod's work.
From time to time, the page will also include short items on new resources, up-coming events or new opportunities for Anglicans to contribute to the life of their church.
Space for InterMission is donated by the Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican.

In July, 1995, an Anglican provincial synod was held in Rwanda which ultimately signalled the episcopal church's survival of one of the century's worst genocides.
What has become apparent, though, is that the continued presence of the Anglican church in the devastated African nation does not mean that it has regained the place it once enjoyed in people's hearts. Too many people have died or fled, there have been too many betrayals and there is too much pain for anyone to be able to pretend that things will ever be the same again.
In March, InterMission looks at the state of the church in Rwanda and how the Canadian Anglican presence which was there before the bloodbaths in the spring of 1994, continues, as all strata of Rwandan society embark on the difficult processes of peace, justice and reconciliation.

The priorities of the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) may change in light of social and political realities, but the work goes on regardless of circumstances or difficulties.
"PWRDF is not driven out by strife", says Robin Gibson, the fund's director.
It is crucial to the work of the fund, staff and PWRDF partners agree, that the work continue through the bad times as well as the good.
In September, InterMission looks at some changes that PWRDF has had to make in light of those political realities, specifically in the African nation of Rwanda where twice in the past 18 months, PWRDF development coordinator Rob Shropshire has had to travel to assess the damage.

Attention : Diocesan Editors
For three years, a group called the Beginners has been working on a strategic plan to plot a future course for General Synod. Where did they start ? What kinds of things did they think about ? What principles guided them ?
In May, InterMission looks at the work the Beginners did through the eyes of one of them, Kathleen McLaughlin. Ms. McLaughlin, 29, was the youngest of the group, a management consultant with degrees in theology, business and electrical engineering, whose time was donated to the church by the high-powered firm of McKinsey and Company.
The whole concept of strategic planning, she says, is firmly rooted in the Bible. Even Jesus did it.
InterMission is a page prepared monthly by the Communications Department of General Synod and published in the Anglican Journal/Journal Anglican.
