The editor describe the grace and privilege of his time in Angola in March 2007 as part of a visit by Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury. "Angola and its growing Anglican Church, the visit almost immediately following the Primates Meeting in Tanzania, was one more sacramental and practical sign of 'why' we are a Communion of Churches -- not casual friends, but mutual friends, interdependent and responsible to each other, as our Common Prayer and Christ's gospel help us overcome that which divides us. Angola has close and substantial links with the Diocese of London. But its 250+ congregations need more global parish links to ensure a strong Anglican Christian witness in the post-trauma environment -- 41 years of war and ruin. The exchange of grace and inspiration is a two-way opportunity .... I close with these lines from Archbishop Roger Herft, as we contemplate our risen life in Christ, together as a global family. He says: 'Christlikeness is not us creating people into our image but God through the power of the cross forming us into 'a new creation'."
