Notes
"The United Church of Canada (UCC) is divided over the issue of ordination of practising homosexuals and lesbians. Michael Riordon has written a book which attempts to narrate and explore the story leading up to and following the 1988 decision of the UCC's General Council to allow such ordinations." "One feels for the people who are agonizing over the issue, whether they are members of the conservative Community of Concern, highly-placed officials, or homosexuals fighting for what they believe to be their rights. Riordon does an admirable job of introducing us to these people whose lives and futures and whose church is caught up in The Issue -- as it is labelled throughout the book. This is what we would expect from Riordon, a freelance writer and playwright. But when he gets to matters of biblical criticism, Christian doctrine and history he becomes simplistic".
Reviewer is Dean of Divinity at Trinity College.

"[W]ith a foreword by Carolyn Purden".
A selection of 254 letters to the "Anglican Journal" and its predecessor "The Canadian Churchman" arranged chronologically from April 1955 to December 2005.
Letters compiled and annotated with "Notes on Context" by Colin Proudman. -- Foreword, p. 7.
"The issues that engaged our readers during the 50 years covered by this collection were myriad: modernizing the liturgy; supporting anti-apartheid protests; defining the place of gays and lesbians in the church; changing the words of old hymns; accepting draft dodgers; questioning the value of residential schools; legalizing abortion; promoting shareholder action against corporations; uniting with other churches; opening the priesthood and episcopacy to women; abolishing capital punishment. Often these milestones in church and society provoked a visceral response .... More poignant are the letters from those who write from their own experience." -- Foreword, p. 7.
Index subjects include: boycotts, church union, homosexuality, Israel/Palestine, Native peoples, Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), residential schools, South Africa and Worship.

Notes
"The PWRDF supplement [Under the Sun] in the Feb. [2013] issue lists a recipe for ending global hunger -- generosity, working together, food banks, partners, government support. The missing item is family planning -- birth control, contraception, all it what you will". "In 1908, the Lambeth Conference ... came out against contraception, declaring it inconsistent with Christian morality. The next conference, held after World War I, modified its stance and language; the conference in the early '30s declared that contraception, used after spiritual and medical advice, was acceptable. This was, to my mind, courageous, but that conference has regrettably not been followed up by action. The Anglican church, with its openness to change and medical and scientific advances, could show other churches, aid organizations and governments that it has the courage today the the Lambeth bishops showed these many years ago".

Notes
"I have much sympathy with Bishop Spong ['The Bible .. to be continued', Jan. 2012, p. 9]. Today, many speak of the paradigm shift, as our society moves from throw-away to recycle. Paradigm shifts must be taken into account if we would communicate with our contemporaries, and there is no more important paradigm shift than the way we think about and speak of God. Paul Tillich wrote of God as 'the ground of being' -- the 'sine qua non' of everything. There is a story about Tillich arriving in heaven, where he is met by an imposing figure: Tillich: Are you God ? God: Yes. Tillich: Take me to your leader. Couldn't have put it better myself".
