Channing M. Williams was a Virginia farmer’s son who graduated from college and seminary, then offered himself as a missionary to China, where he was ordained priest. He spent two years there, then was sent to Japan, where he opened his work in Nagasaki. In 1866 he was named bishop for both nations, but soon concentrated on Japan and founded St. Paul’s University. In 1887 he helped consolidate the English and American missions to form Nippon Sei Ko Kai, the Holy Catholic Church of Japan. After retirement he remained in Kyoto, supporting his successors and opening new missions until returning to the USA shortly before he died in 1910. (The Rev. Tobias Haller, BSG)
