While zooming through bumpy streets on the back of a motorcycle, hanging on for dear life, Will Ferrey, a Canadian theological intern, considered that this might be his baptism into the theology of Sri Lanka.
It just so happens that the three participants in the 2010 Theological Students International Internship Program(TSIIP) are avid bloggers. During their three-month postings with overseas Anglican partners, they are blogging stories like the ones above.
Only a few years ago, TSIIP participants would share news by email or letter. Now, the open nature of blogs lets the rest of the church peek over the shoulders of these bright students as they experience life overseas.
The three return to Canada later this summer, so now is the time to catch up on their stories and pray for their ministry. Here are some other blog highlights:
- Kerri walks the stations of the cross and forgets to bring her Kleenex
- Robert considers what the World Cup brings out in Brazilians
- Will puzzles over the strange economics of the rich-poor divide in Sri Lanka
Organized by General Synod’s Partnerships department, TSIIP is open to Canadian Anglican theological students who are interested in increasing their awareness of global issues, deepening their commitment to the Anglican Church’s mission and ministry, and gaining cross-cultural experience. Students must have completed two years’ training and be a postulant for their diocese. Past students have travelled to countries including Belize, Uganda, and South Africa.
