Interfaith Letter on Prison Chaplaincy

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.

Paul wrote:

"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.
