Preview of Sudan Video

The Diocese of Chicago's Renk Media Team has produced an excellent video on its recent trip to Sudan. The following preview has just become available. I recognize several people from my two trips to the Diocese of Renk. Particular friends are Archbishop Daniel Deng Bul, formerly bishop of Renk and current Archbishop of the Episcopal Church of the Sudan; Bishop Joseph Garang Atem, bishop of Renk; The Very Rev. Martha Deng Naihl, Dean of St. Matthew Cathedral; and Toby Ressen (Toby John), pastor of St. Barnaba, Maban, sister parish of St. Barnabas, Glen Ellyn. There are scenes of Toby by and in the church building St. Barnabas funded. We have also, just this summer, funded the digging of a well in Maban. St. Barnabas also provides for Toby Ressen's salary. It is a privilege to be a part of what they are all doing in the Sudan to bear witness to the good news of God's reconciling love in Jesus Christ. It has helped to focus our mission at St. Barnabas in Glen Ellyn.
