The Principal of Ridley Hall, in Cambridge, the Revd Dr Michael Volland, completed a 50km ultramarathon last month to raise funds for the new Episcopal University of South Sudan. The university was established to educate and equip leaders in a Christian context to help to bring peace and stability. “The story of the emerging Episcopal University is a great one to tell and naturally leads into saying something more about the good news of Jesus Christ,” said Dr Volland.
