"Thirty of the thirty-seven Anglican Provinces were represented at Berkeley, together with a participant from the Mar Thoma Church, providing the widest representation of the Communion at IALC thus far. Participants worked together for the best part of a week and the attached statement is the result of their labours. The statement covers the areas of the theology of ordination and the liturgies of ordination. It represents a very wide consensus among liturgists of our Communion. Other related topics were raised for future discussion, including discernment, preparation and formation for ordination, renewal of ordination promises, and celebration of new ministry. The attached statement is offered to the Churches of the Anglican Communion for study, and it is hoped that it will be of use to those Provinces engaged in revision of ordination liturgies, now or in the future". -- Intro., p. 3.

Author defines a professional as "someone who does things that most other people can't do for themselves, like pulling teeth or removing gall bladders or conveying property. An artist is someone who so displays his or her insights and intuitions that other people are enabled to experience fresh insights of their own. I suggest that the real work of ministry is that of an artist -- sermons, liturgy, study groups, even counselling, are all intended to enable people to discover the meaning of the Gospel and the call of the holy for themselves." Previously "posted in a meeting called Professional Ministry on [the] Ecunet [electronic religious network]". Also published in "AngliCan Arts", vol. 1, no. 1, Epiphany 1998, p. 7.
"The roots of fabric art are ancient, but the craft is easily adapted to any setting. It is truly an art of the people, especially of women. Its execution is often communal. Its results are portable and may be used to grace any number of worship spaces. [The authors] have collected more than 100 pictures of contemporary Canadian fabric art and have bound them together with commentary on the aspirations and personalities of the artists and the symbolism of the craft".

"This report captures the essence of the multi-faceted, multicultural Anglican Communion through the sermons, hearings, reports, and resolutions from the 10th Meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council held in Panama City in October 1996. There the Council wrestled with the key issues that must be addressed by the Anglican Communion as it faces the challenges of mission, human sexuality, fundamentalism, Islam, crises, morality, evangelism, liturgy, ecumenical relations, and structure in the twenty-first century. Includes the complete text of 'The Virginia Report' on church structure, 'The Dublin Report' on liturgy, and an address by the Archbishop of Canterbury that discusses the possibility of an Anglican Congress in the near future and the topics set for the 1998 Lambeth Conference". -- back cover.
