Thinking Anglicans

Southern Sudan referendum

The Secretary General, Canon Kenneth Kearon, writes:

The thoughts and prayers of many in the Anglican Communion are focused on Sudan at this time, as the people of Southern Sudan prepare for a referendum to decide their future. The referendum will take place on 9 January next, and all are invited to pray and to focus their concerns on that war-torn country at this time.

And the ACO has provided a page of background material.

Prayers for Sudan. Many TEC dioceses and parishes have significant companion relationships with counterparts in Sudan. Pray for a peaceful resolution for our sisters and brothers.
