Dear Colleagues in Ministry:
Assistant to Bishop Susan, Rev. Paul Gehrs, sent this email together with the attached Interfaith letter on Prison Chaplaincy signed by our National Bishop.
"Bishop Susan has asked that synods be aware of this action regarding changes in prison chaplaincy.
Should you choose to share this letter with others,
I think it is good to remind members of this church
that individuals making their own views known to their own MPs
is a vital part of the democratic process."
I concur - please make your views know, to the members of your congregation/assembly and also to your Member of Parliament.
In addition to the Interfaith letter, I have attached several other documents on this subject. Bishop Michael will be making a statement now that members of the Interfaith Committee have spoken.
Rev. W. Phil Heinze, Director
