What's in this issue

Spanz September 2007In the September issue, we examine the state of mission in Vanuatu and the ways in which we can best serve our primary mission partner. We report on the establishment of the new Centre for Theology and Religious Studies in Dunedin, which has been mostly funded by Presbyterians. We check out Connect07, which saw 150 youth leaders from around the country descend on Otaki for a weekend of fun and inspiration. A trust has been set up to honour the Very Rev Alan Brash, a former Moderator and key figure in the ecumenical movement. We also look at the strain that prison chaplains are under and talk to a Kiwi teacher who has made a pioneering trip to North Korea. See below to links to these and more stories.
