Rowan Williams to visit Zimbabwe in October

Rowan Williams to visit Zimbabwe in October

The Archbishop of Canterbury is traveling to Zimbabwe in hopes of being able to stop the ongoing violence caused by renegade Anglicans under the leadership of Bishop Nolbert Kunonga.

“Williams is pressing to meet President Robert Mugabe over the matter according to Chad Gandiya, the Harare bishop for the Anglican Province of Central Africa.

Mugabe and Kunonga enjoy close ties.

[…]“At the moment there are parishioners being banned from church buildings by Kunonga with help of the police. They are worshiping in open spaces, under trees or booking other church buildings,” Gandiya said.

Some of the churches that have been taken over by Kunonga are the Borrowdale church, the main cathedral in central Harare, Dzivaresekwa, Kuwadzana and many other Anglican parishes where the police are chasing away people belonging to the mother church. “

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
