Archbishops of Canterbury and York Launch New Evangelism Initiative

Veronica Neffinger | Editor, ChristianHeadlines.com | Tuesday, September 13, 2016

The Church of England, under the leadership of the Archbishops of Canterbury and of York, are beginning a new initiative focused on sharing the Good News.

According to ChristianToday.com, the new program is called “Renewal and Reform,” and involves a series of videos sharing new ways to evangelize using digital strategies and other ways of sharing the Good News.

Even though Church of England attendance is significantly declining, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said this new initiative is not just to get more people in the pews.

“It’s nothing to do with survival strategies or rebuilding the numbers in the Church,” he said.

“It’s that we have found and experienced the love of God in such transforming power, in ourselves and in our communities, in our households, in all those around, that we want others to find the hope, the security, the reality, the challenge, the excitement of following Jesus Christ as his disciple.”

Archbishop of York Dr. John Sentamu added, “Our job is to be out there, on the streets, wherever it is, sharing this amazing message of Jesus: that he actually forgives us our sins, gives us new life in the present and hope for the future.”

Through this new initiative, Church of England leaders hope to bring new life to the church and to focus on the Gospel and sharing it with others.

Researchers Would Love To Know Why Some Older People Have Such Excellent Memories

What explains the youthful brains of “super agers”?

Aging often goes hand-in-hand with declining memory, but some lucky older adults, sometimes called “super agers,” seem to keep their memory sharp as ever. Scientists — and the rest of us — can’t wait to find out just how that’s possible.

We desperately need to understand how some older adults are able to function very well into their seventh, eighth, and ninth decades,” Bradford Dickerson, an associate professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, said in a recent press release. “This could provide important clues about how to prevent the decline in memory and thinking that accompanies aging in most of us.”

In a study published Wednesday in The Journal of Neuroscience, Dickerson and his colleagues at Massachusetts General Hospital took a look at the brains of several older adults with remarkable memory performance.

They found that certain areas of their brains, particularly those involved in learning and memory, were similar in size to those of young people.

‘We were surprised to learn that the super agers had brains with areas important for memory that did not show the typical shrinkage seen in most older adults,” Dickerson told The Huffington Post in an email. “Some of these areas were not just in between the size of young and typical older adults but were actually the same size of young adults in their 20s.’”

According to the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center, in fact, only 56 refugees have been Christian, out of the 11,157 Syrian refugees welcomed into the U.S.

Some speculate that the Obama administration is deliberately welcoming more Muslim refugees than Christians. Read one account here.
