Anglicans in Zimbabwe rejoice at return of property

Anglicans in Zimbabwe are rejoicing now that church property, including St. Mary's and All Saints Cathedral in the Diocese of Harare, has been returned to them. Anglican Communion News Service reports:

Anglican Bishop of Harare the Rt Revd Chad Gandiya has said that forgiveness still remains the biggest challenge for Christians in his diocese after years of "living in exile”.

Bishop Gandiya said: “People are very happy to have returned to their churches but they are still hurting. The church needs to find new ways of teaching on healing and forgiveness.”

The Bishop was referring to the pain suffered after breakaway bishop Dr. Nobert Kunonga and his supporters grabbed church properties including churches, schools and orphanages, leaving Anglicans nowhere to worship.
