The "average" anglican

A great reminder from AnglicansOnline about just exactly who the average anglican is.

the famous 'average Anglican' who

is African
is a woman
is not yet 30
has three children
walks more than 3 km per day
lives on less than US$2 per day
is related to someone with HIV/AIDS

In our busy hustle and bustle of Christmas preparations, let us not forget those many people in the world less fortunate that ourselves. I think too often we see the average anglican as ourselves a very false image, but one that keeps of very comfortable.
