Administrative History
The Church of England Deaconess and Missionary Training House was established in 1890 as a residential school to prepare women workers for Deaconess and missionary service. In 1947 the name was changed to the Anglican Women's Training College (AWTC). Anglican women from all over Canada came to Toronto to train for work in Christian Education in parishes, medical and teaching services overseas, Indian and Eskimo Residential Schools and reserves, Bishop's Messengers in western Canada, Sunday School by Post and Radio, youth and social work. The Woman's Auxiliary recruits were sent to the AWTC for missionary training for a year or less before being sent out. This was different from the three year diploma program offered to AWTC students. In 1969, the AWTC merged with the United Church's Covenent College to become the Centre for Christian Studies using the former AWTC building on Charles Street, Toronto. In 1997, the building in Toronto was sold and a decision was made to discontinue the traditional residential program in favour of the community based program and to relocate the administrative offices to Winnipeg. In July, 1998, CCS officially moved.

Notes
"Edited by Peter C. Bouteneff and Dagmar Heller".
Includes bibliographical references.
"The fact that people read and understand texts in different ways is surely one of the main sources of Christian division, and one of the reasons Christians remain divided today. What is the role of culture in shaping our ways and means of interpretation ? A certain diversity in interpretations is to be expected and celebrated. But can there be agreed criteria for setting the limits to diversity ? Could there be guidelines for interpreting texts and symbols ecumenically, in a way that bridges some of our confessional and cultural differences ? Questions such as these have formed the basis of the work of the World Council of Churches' Faith and Order commission in the area of ecumenical hermeneutics. This book brings together the text of Faith and Order's study process (`A Treasure in Earthen Vessels') as well as several essays contributed along the way by participants from different confessional and regional backgrounds. These essays speak to the complexity and depth of `the hermeneutical problem' in the ecumenical task, offering insights, raising still further questions, and laying the ground for further work". -- back cover.
