first_img The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group By Bellah ZuluPosted Jan 25, 2013 An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET [Anglican Communion News Service] A Tanzanian bishop has said African churches have a duty to complement state education to help improve the local lives and the local community.Bishop John Lupaa of the Diocese of the Rift Valley was speaking after the Tanzanian government announced it would re-register Kalimatinde School of Nursing, which is owned and run by his diocese.The bishop explained that, despite being one of the country’s oldest nursing institutions, the school had been de-registered 14 years ago when it was going through “difficult economic times.”“The school had difficulties maintaining the buildings,” he said, “[and] retaining well-qualified staff who were leaving for greener pastures.”Despite the challenges that the school has faced, Lupaa is optimistic about the positive role that the institution and the church in Africa can play.He said, “As the church in Africa, we have a responsibility to contribute towards the government’s efforts of improving the lives of people in our communities.”Lupaa also made reference to the “integral” and “holistic” evangelism that is embraced by the Anglican church. He said, “By running the school, we are in essence evangelizing.”He added, “Having well trained nurses all over Tanzania means we would have been successful at teaching society to follow and love God.”Principal of the school Sister Wilhelmina Mafuru said, “The school does not only serve our region but the rest of the country. Since its inception the school has produced thousands of graduates who are serving the country in various capacities.”The principal also pointed out some of the areas where the school still faces challenges. “We don’t meet all the standards completely. Our school library needs to be upgraded,” she said. “We also need computers as well as Internet facilities.”Even though the government has granted the school full registration, it will continue to check on the school to make sure that it meets the standards.Mafuru said that although the school, which was established in 1965, has faced many challenges, “our students have continued to perform very well.”Lupaa said: “Prayer, perseverance and endurance have helped us achieve what we have achieved. It has been hard but in the end, we have succeeded.” Tags In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Albany, NY Featured Events TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Rector Shreveport, LA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit an Event Listing This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Featured Jobs & Calls Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Director of Music Morristown, NJ Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Anglican Communion Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Martinsville, VA Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Submit a Job Listing Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Africa, Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Collierville, TN Submit a Press Release Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Washington, DC Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Bath, NC Youth Minister Lorton, VA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.
