This is a well-known cartoon by Bruce Beattie, dating from about 2004 or earlier. An anxious viewer is watching his television as a news reporter shouts from the screen 'WHAT CAN WE DO TO LESSEN THE GRIP OF FEAR FROM TERRORISM?' In the next frame the same scene has changed in two ways. The viewer 'clicks' his TV remote control; the screen is black - and the viewer turns to give a knowing smile to us the readers.

Buses will leave the hotels at 4pm and 5pm for the ceremony venue. The Closing Ceremony and Gala Night will be Saturday 27th August. The theme for the Gala Night will be Rock'n'Roll so start practising your best Rock'n'Roll moves ready for the dancing. This year our colour theme is Blue.
If you are attending the conference and have not yet sent a scan of your passport,a colour photo of yourself and your travel details [date, hour, flight number] to the conference organisers , please do this as soon as you can.These details are needed for organisation and security reasons.
Our Paris hosts have been working hard to arrange everything and are really looking forward to welcoming everyone to the conference.
See you in Paris.
I write with a heavy heart to inform you of the death of Heathrow Chaplain Major Kay Carpagnano (Salvation Army). Kay died on Friday 29th July, of an apparent cardiac arrest while on holiday with her family. I would ask you to keep her husband, Emanuele, and their children in your prayers.
As you can imagine, the chaplaincy team at Heathrow is deeply shocked and saddened by Kay's death. She was a beloved member of our team and only last month was appointed as Lead Chaplain for Terminal 3. Her quiet manner, joyful spirit and deep compassion was a source of comfort and strength to us all. Kay had made reservations to attend the upcoming IACAC conference; I hope you agree with me that it would be fitting to find a moment of silence in the conference schedule where we can remember her.

One of the strengths of IACAC is the breadth of its membership with each chaplaincy bringing different experiences and, through our collective sharing, the understandings of all members are widened. Please encourage all members of your chaplaincy team to join IACAC either as active or associate members. If each of us encouraged at least one other member of our chaplaincy to join IACAC our collective knowledge and skills will grow even more. Let us adopt as our motto "Each One Bring One"
We have so much we can learn together from each other
Praise is like sunlight to the human spirit: we cannot flower and grow without it.
