Very much in the front of my mind as I approach this subject is the headline of an article in the Christmas issue of the Sunday Times, 1979 which was written by the Rt. Rev. Philip Russell, Anglican Bishop of Natal. In it he warns, presumably, White South African Anglicans: ""Never forget, our Church is four-fifths Black!"" That speaks for the Anglican Community in South Africa only, a denomination which political propaganda has given us the impression is very foreign to the soil of Africa ... and very jingo-ish!
