Clarification on the benefit of Saturday's
`Play a round with a Bishop': Regarding your
report in Tuesday's Daily did not make clear that this event was in support of the United Society for the Propagation
of the Gospel, and was a fund-raising event to support the society's partnership with the worldwide church. It
was an event in mission itself. Many players were laypeople who paid to play with the bishops---and many I know
were touched by God's grace during the day. By the way, it was held on Saturday, not Sunday!

Enough is enough! Your issue number 12 included
a free advertisement for a crosier on sale in the Market Place for £1900. As the design includes the Compass
Rose, it must be intended for one of us, a member of a Conference which will soon be calling for the cancellation
of the debt of the poorer countries in the world. Paradoxically ``the truth shall make you free'' is highlighted
in silver gilt. Guilt? Think again, fellow bishops. We have no problem with appropriate and reasonable trappings
of episcopal office, but there is a limit. The £1900 crosier and a number of the other crosiers, mitres,
copes, pectoral crosses, etc, on sale in the Market Place are an extravagance without which the Anglican Communion

A note of appreciation for the Mothers' Union
Presentation of July 27. It was encouraging to hear that Mary Sumner House is still a beacon of hope for the Mothers'
Union worldwide. Slogan: `Phambili, Mary Sumner House, Phambilii.' What can I say about the Central President,
Christine Eames? She is a leader who wears an allembracing smile which like a sweet-smelling fragrance remains
with those with whom she has come into contact. Slogan: ¡Viva, Christine Eames,Viva! And: Long live the Mothers'
Union worldwide! Lastly, and most importantly:
¡Viva to God Our Creator,Viva!

We have been very much blessed by our pilgrimage
to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. I was, however, very disappointed that among those who had signed up to
participate in the pilgrimage, only half actually participated. I understand that many bishops (and spouses) must
have been tired and could not go on the pilgrimage. But, even so, I still think they should be sorry that they
have given much disappointment to those who had prayerfully prepared for the Lambeth Bishops' Pilgrimage.

Prayers for Yemen
Bishop Clive Handford (Cyprus and the Gulf)
has written to the Roman Catholic bishop responsible for Yemen expressing sympathy at the recent deaths of three
nuns there. The text of his letter follows: ``The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Bishops of the Anglican Communion
meeting under his presidency at the Lambeth Conference join me in expressing great sadness at the death of the
three Catholic nuns in Yemen. ``The devotion and dedication of the sisters is an inspiration to many. It is particularly
tragic that their caring has been so violently interrupted. ``Please express our deep sympathy to the community
``with the assurance of our prayers.''
