Representatives of diverse regional and national Christian associations call for solidarity in theological education in Asian churches, “transcending stereotyped views of each other as ‘ecumenicals’, ‘evangelicals’ or ‘charismatics’”.

Fred Pavey has a rubber chicken. His wife gave it to him. Fred is a British explosive ordnance disposal technician.

It’s a loving reminder to be … safe.
