About the Author:

Hubert John Brooke Allen, grandson of Roland Allen was born in 1931 in what is nowadays Tanzania. He has served in numerous countries, notably Uganda, Nigeria, the Dominican Republic, and Great Britain; and for more than a dozen years he was Director of Training for the International Union of Local Authorities [IULA], based at The Hague, in Holland. Now an international consultant on training for municipal administration, he lives on the outskirts of Oxford with his Irish wife, Phoebe (a teacher); their three children are also based in Oxford whenever they are in England.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Although a largely favorable debate followed this address, nothing much happened in consequence of it whilst Toland was still in southern Africa. A couple of years later, however, a letter in The Canadian Churchman from Roland's admirer, Frederick Junkison, is headed 'Voluntary Clergy in Capetown'. In this is summarized a few details of the proceedings of the Capetown Synod, South Africa, as reported in the Church Chronicle of October 25th, last. It appears that the Coadjutor Bishop of Capetown, Dr. J.O. Nash, moved: That this Synod approves the principle of ordaining suitable men engaged in various occupations as unpaid clergy to supplement the regular clergy and to minister to small congregations. After an interesting debate the word approves was deleted, and the words commends to the Bishops the further study of substituted. The amended motion was carried by about 70 to 12 in the House of Clergy, and almost unanimously in the House of Laymen.
