We give you thanks, O God, we give you thanks. We call upon your name and tell of all the wonders you have done.
Since gaining its independence from the north in 2011, South Sudan has experienced much conflict, including civil war and the Church has had to minister in a very fragile context. The Church regularly responds to needs for relief for people affected by the ongoing political instability and ABM supports such relief efforts in South Sudan.
In July last year, a group was received at the Archbishop’s invitation to examine whether the Sudanese dioceses (based in the Muslim-dominated north) should split to form a separate province.
On this day we call to mind our sisters and brothers within the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan; and so we pray for –
God our refuge and our strength, be with the members of the Sudanese Church on their journey towards you. May their Church be a place of freedom and joy, as they move forward to a future of healing and grace. Amen.
