Notes
"A homily preached by [the Rev.] Stephen Reynolds on 11 April 2002 at All Saints' Cathedral, Halifax, and revised for a Requiem Mass at Trinity College Chapel on 30 April 2002." Eugene Fairweather "was a very private man who lived a very public career as a priest whose vocation, whose ministry, who very life, was to do theology, and as a theologian who considered it his discipline's duty to serve the Church, to build up the people of God in the faith which seeks understanding". He was particularly active and influential, in Canada and throughout the Communion, as a participant in the Anglican Communion's dialogues with the Roman Catholic and Orthodox communions. Fr. Fairweather selected the readings for the requiem liturgy (Isaiah 25:6-9; Revelation 21: 1-17; John 6:37-40) himself and Reynolds ends by saying: "Eugene was a theologian to the end. It is the calling and duty of theologians to remind the Church that our faith is not about us. Even as they speak and, by speaking, call attention to themselves, they are to point us away from their own presence to the presence of God in Christ. This Eugene has done in his final office and service; and for that service, for all his ministry as priest and theologian now brought to this end, we do indeed bid him adieu, `to God'."

Notes
The author, a priest of the Anglican Church of Canada, reviews the "recent attempt by the Church of England to revise the Church year" and in particular "the impact these revisions have had on the season of Advent". The Church of England has recently altered the Church calendar "specifically [with] the addition of a seventh season to the Church year that immediately precedes Advent. Initially called the 'Kingdom Season' (Celebrating Common Prayer, Mowbray, 1992) and later renames 'All Saints to Advent', this newly created season is designed to bring together the many themes present during the many themes present during the month of November -- All Saints, the departed, Remembrance and the Kingship of Christ." Reaction to this new season has been mixed. One of the most vocal opponents of the revision is N.T. Wright, Bishop of Durham. "In addition to questioning the presence of Christ's kingdom from Ascension onwards and implying that Christ may only be king of heaven and not of earth as well, the season of 'All Saints to Advent' calls into question the earliest Christian confession that Jesus is Lord already and that its not something one has to wait for until the end of time by suggesting that he does not yet reign but hopefully will at some point in the distant future. As a result, this latter point in particular belittles the hope that is set before God's people in the season of Advent".

Notes
"While the author states, in passing, that increase in numbers is not the only way to measure Christian growth, it is this criterion that is used continually in the book. Thus 'recession' in the mainline churches from the 60's to the 90's is illustrated with statistics from church records of declining congregations, and the evidence for `recovery' is found in larger congregations, expanding buildings and burgeoning budgets". The reviewer questions whether this is in fact "an accurate view of the real life of the churches in the past four decades" suggesting that while there has been a decline in numbers the churches have struggled to come to overcome racism, recognize the equality of women in membership and ministry, etc. The reviewer considers that these challenges have resulted in a renewed and active church whose actions may have caused it to lose some members but which itself strives to live the challenge of the Gospel.

The author reflects on the reality that Anglicans are divided by the hymn and prayer books they use (and do not use). "Perhaps we could create a new prayer book structured like a hymnbook. It would contain all the prayers for the Communion service taken from all the approved sources .... And all these prayers would be numbered, just like the hymns in a hymnbook, to enable us to assemble them as we wish. What a treasure house. There would be something for everybody, as opposed to the present politicized system where the winner takes all". This "new book of worship for Holy Communion ... would be called the BAP (Book of Alternative Prayers). Its cover would be brown (a mixture of red and green) and it would be used by the whole community for the single Sunday morning service, starting at 10:15 a.m."
The author "is a Toronto architect and liturgical consultant".

Notes
The writer appeals to reader to send their proposals for the clarification of the words "Sanctity" and "Doctrine" to the editors. "We will publish everything we think can make a contribution to this debate". These words occur in the text of the motion passed at the 2004 General Synod, affirming "the integrity and sanctity of committed adult same-sex relationships" which was passed at least partially in reaction to the disappointment of many members with the decision to defer the original motion asking for the authorization of same sex blessings to the Primate's Theological Commission. "What did General Synod intend when it used these terms ? Was there an established meaning for either word to which Synod could appeal ? .... Is it possible for the church to hold some doctrine without being aware of holding it ?"

"During the last half of the twentieth century the feast of Mary Magdalene was again included in the Anglican liturgical books, after having been absent since the year 1552." "Here I will consider the scripture readings, psalms and collects for the feast of Mary Magdalene used by ten Anglican liturgical books published in the late twentieth century, together with certain earlier Anglican texts and those of several other churches". Collects include come from the Anglican Church of Canada 1962 Book of Common Prayer and Anglican Church of Canada 1985 Book of Alternative Services.
"With the recent popular interest in St. Mary Magdalene expressed in novels, films and other media, the following excerpt from the work of J.F. Henderson on historic liturgies may be of interest to Anglican, Lutheran and other readers. For those who have a particular interest in the subject of women in early Anglican liturgy his website is noted. J.

Notes
Fr. Eugene Fairweather "was a key figure in ARCIC (Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission), passionate about reunion with Rome, and known at home for his opposition to the Plan of Union with the United Church of Canada. When he spoke in diocesan synod, or at General Synod, people paid attention". As one of the best known Anglo Catholics it was widely expected that Fairweather would "give the theological `coup de grace' to the ordination of women" debate in the Anglican Church of Canada. The author recalls a debate in which she participated as a theology student in which she spoke in favour of the ordination of women and Fr. Fairweather opposed. "To my considerable surprise we won the debate. But it was not my brilliant oratory ... I believe that it was Eugene's lack of conviction on the topic. Though he was publicly opposed to the ordination of women, he had privately been persuaded that, theologically, it was the right move." "At the General Synod of 1975, Eugene Fairweather did not argue against the ordination of women as his followers had steadfastly hoped. He did argue for more time for implementation". "I never heard him give a spirited defence of the ordination of women, though he showed his solidarity early on. It was more that he had been persuaded by his reading and reflection upon the tradition of the Church that this was a matter indifferent, a question not of the essence but of custom. As the Primate, Michael Peers, recalled at Eugene's Requiem at St. Mary Magdalene's, Eugene had lived by the maxim he had first articulated at General Synod in Quebec City [in 1975]: `Whatever the word `tradition' means, it does not mean that whatever has not been done cannot be done'."
Author is Director of Faith, Worship and Ministry for the Anglican Church of Canada and is a former tutor in Theology for Dr. Fairweather, Trinity College, Toronto.
