Safeguarding God's Children

Dear Friends,

There is no question what a precious treasure our children are. As leaders in the Diocese of South Carolina, we have a moral, spiritual and canonical obligation to exercise due diligence in assuring that their faith formation happens in a safe environment. History teaches us clearly that this is not an outcome we can take for granted. There are steps we can and must take to assure the joy of their Christian Faith is not stolen from those in our care.

It is with that purpose in mind that the Diocese offers the “Safeguarding God’s Children” workshops across the Diocese.  The workshops continue to be lead by Mrs. Polly Sosnowski, whose years of service as a licensed clinical social worker in South Carolina make her a marvelous resource for this training. The training provided will cover the necessary material to fulfill both diocesan canons and local parish guidelines. The next workshop offered will be held later this month.

 January 21st  @ All Saints, Florence  from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Meeting in the Parish Hall with light refreshments provided.

            [There is no charge.  Register by calling Diane Tina Lamb at 843-662-7061]

 If you have anyone in your parish who works regularly with children or youth, they must  have this training. As we prepare to offer this training outside the Charleston area, it would be very helpful if you would contact me directly to let me know how many people in your parish need training. If you would be interested in being the host for such a workshop, that would be helpful as well. On-line training is also a viable option for some parishes. Call and we can discuss what would work best for you, but do make sure your staff and volunteers are appropriately trained.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation in helping make the Diocese of South Carolina a safe place for all our children.

 In Christ's service,
The Rev. Canon Jim Lewis
Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina

Bishop Nazir-Ali attended Saint Patrick’s High School, Karachi, read economics, Islamic history, and sociology at the University of Karachi (BA 1970) and studied in preparation for ordination at Ridley Hall, Cambridge (1970). He undertook further postgraduate studies in theology at St Edmund Hall, Oxford (BLitt 1974, MLitt 1981), Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge (MLitt 1976), and the Australian College of Theology (PhD 1983). He has also studied at the Center for the Study of World Religions at Harvard Divinity School. His particular academic interests include comparative literature and comparative philosophy of religion. In addition to teaching appointments in Australia and Canada, he has been a tutor in the University of Cambridge, Senior Tutor of Karachi Theological College, and Visiting Professor of Theology and Religious Studies in the University of Greenwich. He has been elected an Honorary Fellow of his colleges at Oxford (St Edmund Hall) and Cambridge (Fitzwilliam). From 1986 until 1989, while he was Assistant to the Archbishop of Canterbury and Co-ordinator of Studies and Education for the Lambeth Conference, he was Honorary Curate of Oxford St Giles and St Philip and St James with St Margaret.

He was ordained an Anglican priest in 1976 and worked in Karachi and Lahore, and became the first Bishop of Raiwind in West Punjab (1984-86) — at the time, the youngest bishop in the Anglican Communion. When his life was endangered in Pakistan in 1986, Robert Runcie, the Archbishop of Canterbury, arranged for his refuge in England. Nazir-Ali says, “…the reason behind some of the difficulties I was facing was removed when General Zia was killed – unfortunately for him, and I am now not doing the work that I was doing at the time with the very poor.” . He became an assistant to the Archbishop at Lambeth and assisted with the planning of the 1988 Lambeth Conference; he was General Secretary of the Church Mission Society 1989-1994 and concurrently Assistant Bishop of Southwark. He was appointed Bishop of Rochester, England in 1994, and in 1999 entered the House of Lords as one of the “Lords Spiritual” because of his seniority in episcopal office, the first religious leader from Asia to serve there. He ceased to be a member of the House of Lords upon his retirement in 2009. He presently serves as director of the Oxford Centre for Training, Research, Advocacy and Dialogue.

Bishop Nazir-Ali’s published writings include the following: Islam: A Christian Perspective (1983); Frontiers in Christian-Muslim Encounters (1987); From Everywhere to Everywhere: A World View of Christian Mission (1990); Thinking globally, acting locally (1992); Mission and Dialogue: Proclaiming the Gospel Afresh in Every Age (1995); The Mystery of Faith (1995); Citizens and Exiles: Christian Faith in a Plural World (2000); Shapes of the Church to Come (2001); Understanding My Muslim Neighbour (2003); Conviction And Conflict: Islam, Christianity And World Order (2005); and many other articles in newspapers and journals.

Insurance Meeting

Dear Friends,

Register Here. 

Over the past several years, issues have arisen that have caused many of you to express an interest in an insurance alternative to the Church Insurance Corporation. The Diocesan Risk Management Committee has been working diligently the past two years to assess the insurance needs of the Diocese and how best to meet them. We have sought to address all areas of coverage:  property, casualty, auto and workmen’s compensation.

We are pleased to say that we are now able to offer an alternative that we believe will be beneficial to the Diocese both in terms of cost and coverage. While no one is required to leave their coverage with Church Insurance, we believe we have an option that is extremely competitive and assures that parishes will have the kind of quality coverage that is needed. Like all such programs, maximum participation will assure the greatest benefits to all. 

In order to present this program to all who are interested, a meeting has been scheduled for Friday, January 27th at St. Paul’s in Summerville. We will meet in Doar Hall from 11:00 - 2:00.  A box lunch will be provided with a small registration fee on-line. While this initial e-mail is directed to Rectors and Wardens, each parish is invited to send as many people as they believe necessary to begin their evaluation of this new program. It is anticipated that enrollment will begin immediately thereafter.

Prior to the meeting, a detailed summary of the program features will be provided to all parishes to enable you to prepare any questions you have for the day of the meeting.You may view that here. In the meantime, I ask that you mark your calendar accordingly, and use the on-line registration to begin indicating your plans to attend.

If you have questions, please feel free to call or e-mail.

In Christ's service,

The Rev. Canon Jim Lewis
for the Risk Management Committee

He also serves as a Chaplain with the State Law Enforcement Division, ATF, and the FBI.

? Crisis Intervention
? Critical Incident Stress Management
? Psychological Triage
