Personal Responsibility and Interdependence

Links in the history of friendship and affection between Canada and Great Britain, with a personal example from the speaker. The Anglican Congress and the Anglican Church in Canada. The word "Empire" yielding to the word "Commonwealth" and what that means. Canada's role in the Commonwealth. The use of the word "free" in describing the Commonwealth, and in describing the Anglican Communion. Some words about Russia. Freedom of worship on the one hand, and intense pressure and persecution upon the Christian church on the other. Continuing Christianity in Russia. The incompatibility of Communism and Christianity. The co-existence of Communism and Christianity, with reasons why that is possible. Caveats in reference to "the free world" in contrast with the "Communist world." Aspects of freedom that we must be watching in the free world. The gift of freedom, and how it grows.
