"The Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod has requested bishops and deans to focus, for 22 days, from May 31 to June 21 , on renewing the church's commitment to support the work of the Anglican Fund for Healing and Reconciliation through prayers, participation in awareness-raising campaigns and donations. Early this year , Council of General Synod (CoGS) agreed to dedicate the undesignated proceeds of Giving with Grace, General Synod's annual fundraising campaign, to replenish the fund. For the next five years, the fund -- created in 1992 as part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement -- will focus on language recovery". General Secretary, Archdeacon Michael Thompson, "stressed that while the Anglican Church of Canada has met its legal obligations under the settlement agreement, 'we're far from finished with our spiritual and moral obligation to continue to support the healing work that is underway among those survivors and in those communities'."
"Anglicans across Canada are being called to demonstrate -- in the 22 days following the closing event of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission -- that this ending is only the beginning of healing and reconciliation with Canada's Indigenous people. Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, and National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald have issued a call to the whole church today to participate in #22days, a campaign that will stretch from the start of the closing of TRC event in Ottawa on May 31  to National Aboriginal Day on June 21 . 22days was first conceived of by a group of cathedral deans from cities in which a national TRC event was held and was 'heartily endorsed' by the House of Bishops" (p. 10). "The General Synod communications team has created a web page -- 22days.ca -- that will offer resources, including 22 videos featuring former residential school students and staff describing their experiences in the schools. The videos are not the typical 30-second sound bytes people are used to viewing on television, they are about 15 to 20 minutes each, in order to tell the stories in a more whole and sensitive way, said Anglican Video senior producer Lisa Barry. One video will be added daily to the website during the 22-day period and each will be accompanied by a prayer, written by various people in the church" (p. 11).

"The 1988 General Convention of the Episcopal Church called for AIDS education in every congregation by the end of 1989 and requested that models of AIDS education be made available that 'promote abstinence or monogamy as well as candid and complete instruction regarding disease prevention measures'. I am pleased to commend 'Advising Young People about AIDS' to you and your congregation. This resource can help you and the people of your congregation respond to the AIDS crisis. It is a part of 'Youth Ministry in the Age of AIDS', an educational project of the Youth Ministries Office at the Episcopal Church Center in New York City, and directed toward the young people of our Church, their families, and the adults who minister to and with them". -- [Preface].

"As late as the 1988 Lambeth Conference, bishops from Africa were denying that there was a disease called AIDS". The situation has changed now and the Cape Town joint meeting passed a resolution "that calls for a universal response to AIDS". Several African churches, including those of Uganda and Tanzania have developed AIDS education and prevention programs.

"Even as I welcome you to this Eucharist today, I need to ask the question: 'Why is this specially designated service of worship necessary ?' ... In 1918 a ravaging epidemic of influenza decimated the whole population, including the United States. Yet so far as I know, there was never any 'Flu Mass' proposed or celebrated. There were probably special prayers in the churches and synagogues, just as there are such prayers in all our current liturgies. But this special liturgical effort is, I believe, unprecedented (p. [1-2])." "This is not just a public health problem. The problem is also one of an appalling lack of ordinary humanitarian concern where a despised and feared and hated minority seems to be at risk (p. )". "In far too many religious bodies, including a large part of the Episcopal Church, the response to the crisis in humanitarianism posed by the epidemic of AIDS has been isolated, cautious and tentative. Our theology of sexuality is in part to blame, and it needs to be re-examined in light of recent psychological studies" (p. ).

The author, a conservative Episcopal priest, has written these book, consisting of three essays "in response to two items published by diocesan commissions in the Episcopal Church on the matter of changing sexual morality" (p. 1) and out of his conviction that "None of this could have happened had the Church not lost its own sense of identity in the Biblical framework, the Biblical cosmos, and the Biblical God and Father of the cosmos. None of this could have happened had the Church had a healthy relationship to the scientific community. Had we been rooted in the truth in a healthy way, we would have spotted this poison, named it for what it was, and thrown it out of our midst" (p. 3). -- Intro.

"When the House of Bishops met in Niagara Falls, Ont., from April 13 to 17 , they discussed some contentious issues, including possible amendments to the marriage canon and a call from the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples (ACIP) for significant changes to church structures. But Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, said there was, nevertheless, 'a spirit of hopefulness' at the gathering". "The bishops discussed the document, 'Where We Are Today: Twenty Years after the Covenant, an Indigenous Call to Church Leadership', in terms of what they thought needed more clarification, what they found encouraging and what they found challenging." "Hiltz observed that what underlies much of these discussions is the question, 'What is everybody's understanding of self-determination ?' This is a conversation that needs to continue, he said. People are not sure what self-determination will mean in terms of concrete changes, said Hiltz". "Bishops also endorsed the #22days campaign calling Anglicans to commit to working toward healing and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. ... Hiltz noted that Bishop Robert Hardwick of the diocese of Qu'Appelle shared plans to ring church bells for murdered and missing women and girls, and other bishops decided that could be done in all of their dioceses".
Dr. Carey, Archbishop of Canterbury, visited the dioceses of Chicago and Los Angeles in May 1996 where he visited a number of the outreach ministries of both dioceses, including work with AIDS patients.
