Notes
A description of the week long visit to the Church of the Province of Uganda by the Most Rev. Frank T. Griswold, Primate of the Episcopal Church. The visit began 28 May 2003 and was timed to include the celebration of the Feast of the Martyrs of Uganda on 3 June. At an address to the Uganda Joint Christian Council "Griswold talked about the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and how `the effect was to teach us in the U.S. that we are vulnerable -- a lesson hard to bear. In that moment we joined the world community where suffering and violent death are a daily reality'. In a subsequent letter to the primates of the Anglican Communion, he said that `this is a moment in which the U.S. might ask about our relations with the rest of the world, examining our politics in light of world suffering. The fundamental message', Griswold said, `is one of reconciliation. How can we as a nation seek to be an instrument of reconciliation'." Griswold visited a project supported by Episcopal Relief and Development and observed some of the many projects begun by the Ugandan Church's Planning, Development and Rehabilitation office. He heard from bishops in the north who have suffered most from the depredation of the Lord's Resistance Army and of the almost one million people internally displace and living in camps. AIDS is also a great problem and the continuing challenge of tribalism.
