Leadership' videos offered
by David Duprey

One of the most valuable aspects of this Lambeth Conference has been the Bible Study programme. The study of Paul's second letter to the Corinthians was developed over two years by a team under the direction of Bishop Simon Barrington-Ward (Ely, England) and is now available for parish use from Trinity Television, New York.

Fifteen bishops were asked to share a personal story about a time in their ministry when their leadership was under pressure and how Paul's second letter to the Corinthians provided support and wisdom. Bishop BarringtonWard said the design team's goal was to represent the world-wide communion of bishops and to provide a scriptural resource applicable not only to the episcopate, but to leadership as a whole, including bishops' spouses. Trinity Church Wall Street, New York, filmed the reflections for the daily study. ``It was a profound experience to hear each of these personal stories and to enhance each with visuals and music to provide a context of place,'' producer Linda Hanick said. Mrs Hanick, director of Trinity's Television Ministry, said the final reflection of the Archbishop of Canterbury was filmed on site Thursday and will be included in the final edition.

The video series is available from TrinityTelevision with the accompanying study guide for use in parish study groups. VHS copies in PAL and NTSC can be purchased through Trinity's Bookstore for $29.95 by calling 1.800.551.1220 in the USA.
