"2005 marks the Anglican Peace and Justice Network's 20th anniversary and its meeting in Jerusalem in September 2004 brings it full circle to its first meeting which also took place in the City of Peace in 1985. Invited by the Right Reverend Riah Hanna Abu El-Assal, APJN convened 23 Provinces of the Anglican Communion under the leadership of Dr. Jenny Te Paa of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia ... (p. 7)". "APJN was both nurtured and shaken during its visit, the former by the warmth of the people of the diocese (virtually all of them Palestinian), and the latter by the conditions of Occupation under which most Palestinians live (p. 7)". "We recognize that the Israeli people have endured attacks and suicide bombings causing great suffering, loss and agony, and that the fear of further suicide bombings continues. We also recognize and lament the historical context of the experience of persecution and genocide by the Jewish people. However, the extent to which the Israeli government has gone in annexing Palestinian land and pushing the Palestinians into cantons and denying this people both dignity and self-determination is unjustifiable. If Israel continues with its actions in the name of security (as is often argued) then their hope for life without fear is diminished as the Palestinian people will continue in their struggle for nationhood (p. 9)".
Contents divided into four main sections.
Contents: List of Participant Provinces -- The Local Context of the Meeting -- Moral Responsibility of Investments -- APJN Statement on Palestinian/Israeli Conflict -- Honoring a Peacemaker -- Regional Conflicts : Seeking Conflict Transformation -- A Personal Challenge to the Communion / Pie Ntukamazina -- The Challenge of Globalization -- Environmental Justice -- Theological Education as Foundational to Peacemaking -- Interfaith Relations as a Tool for Justice -- A Conversation with Mordechai Vanunu -- Recommendations to the Anglican Consultative Council -- Networking -- Business Meeting and Closing Comments.
Section III Recommendations organized into four subject sections: Conflict Transformation -- Theological Education -- Interfaith Relations -- Environment.
The Anglican Church of Canada was represented by Ms. Cynthia Patterson.

"At the invitation of the Anglican Province of Korea, over 30 members of the Anglican Peace and Justice Network (APJN), representing 24 Provinces of the Anglican Communion, met on the grounds of Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea, from April 14 to April 21, 1999. .... In this summary of the meeting, the committee reports are presented first, followed by in-depth reports from the Provinces and some Dioceses of the Communion. .... There are also the immediate, active concerns of the APJN as a collective sounding board for the Communion. There are two papers on`Alternatives to War', in light of the international involvement in Kosovo and potential involvement elsewhere. And there is attention paid to problems in Korea, the host country. The group considered the problem of `Korean Re-Unification', and lifted up the ways in which the Christian churches are attempting to become partners in a healing process. Members of APJN made a visit to the DMZ, the dividing line between the estranged nations of the peninsula. And they considered ways to continue the dialogue, launched at Lambeth in 1998, of the church with its gay and lesbian members in a `Panel on Homosexuality'." -- Coming to Seoul, p. 3.

Prologue
Dean Peter Wall presented the report and spoke to the proposed theme for General Synod. He said that the committee had received replies on the proposed theme from the Standing Committees, Councils and Boards. As a result the original theme "Draw the Circle Wide" has been expanded to "Draw the Circle Wide ... Draw it Wider Still". Dean Wall said that the Planning Committee believes that the theme speaks of the inclusivity of our church -- inclusive of all people and all perspective and points of view. The open circle, envisioned in graphics, supports the idea that all is not yet revealed; that all are not yet part of our circle; and that we are opening and welcoming.
General Synod will meet from June 19-25, 2007 in Winnipeg, MB. The committee is in final negotiations with two downtown hotels, as the University of Manitoba, could no longer guarantee the required number of bedrooms.
