"But following years of declining membership and ongoing disagreement among its clergy about how best to adjust to shifting patterns of religious affiliation and church attendance, the bishop and the diocesan executive committee have approved a set of recommendations for reorganization. It adopted, it will lead to the shuttering of 16 of the deanery's 35 churches. 'Particularly in Muskoka .. we have too many churches', former Algoma Bishop Stephen Andrews, who left the diocese at the end of July [2016] to take up the position of principal of Wycliffe College in Toronto, said in an interview" (p. 1, 15). Archdeacon Harry Huskins, administrator of the diocese, said: "We are striking a balance between trying to generate that full-time stipend, and not have too many [congregations]' ... adding that this is not simply about money, but also about ensuring that priests don't spend more time driving around their parish than they do serving it. According to a clergyperson within the deanery who requested anonymity, the problem is exacerbated by an unwillingness among some parishioners to drive to a different congregation if their church is closed". "The diocese if schedule to elect a new bishop October 14 [2016]". "In his February [2016] report, Andrews had stressed the importance of approaching the closure of congregations sensitively, with attention paid to each church's unique circumstances". "Andrews said the future of the cemeteries attached to congregations slated for closure will also need to be taken into account. (The deanery currently has 18 cemeteries under its care.)"

"The Canadian delegates to the 14th Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) meeting echoed sentiments expressed by other attendees of hope and optimism, albeit tempered by the reality that outstanding issues related to clashing views about human sexuality remain very much on the table". The Canadian delegates were Ms. Suzanne Lawson (lay), the Rev. Stephen Andrews (clergy) and the Rt. Rev. Sue Moxley (episcopal). "Both Bishop-elect Andrews and Bishop Moxley underscored the importance and urgency of the work that lies before a still-to-be appointed body tasked to look at possible changes to the covenant, and the standing committee that will give the final stamp before it's sent out to member churches for approval".

Notes
"Speaking at a conference hosted this past September [2013] by Wycliffe College to mark the 50th anniversary of the [1963 Anglican Congress] event, Bishop Stephen Andrews of the diocese of Algoma noted that the mid-1960s marked the peak of the Anglican demographic in Canada and it has fallen ever since. Wycliffe's conference looked back to the 1963 call for a relationship of 'mutual responsibility and interdependence' among the provinces of the Communion -- and also forward to the future of the Anglican Communion. Man of the speakers represented the perspective of conservative Anglicans who objected to the blessing of same-sex marriages and the election of gay and lesbian bishops in North American churches". Bishop Mouneer Anis, primate of Egypt, said "the Anglican Covenant currently being considered has been too 'watered down'. He added, 'Even if every province adopted the Covenant, it would not help our situation'." "Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon of the diocese of Kaduna in Nigeria said he believes there are extreme conservatives and liberals within the Communion, but a majority of about 70 per cent of Anglicans are in the middle and want the Communion to hold together. 'If this Communion has a mission, we must learn to accommodate one another'. Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi, the primate of Burundi, added, 'For genuine reconciliation to be a reality, there will have to be justice, repentance and forgiveness but, above all, speaking the truth in love. Thus reconciliation becomes a language of learning to live with the other and to manage our differences'."

Notes
"Response to the Supreme Court of Canada's decision on Feb. 6 [2015] to strike down the ban on assisted dying reveal just how diverse opinions on this subject are within the Anglican Church of Canada" (p. 1). "John Chapman, bishop of the diocese of Ottawa, was unequivocal in his support" (p. 1). "Bishop Stephen Andrews of the diocese of Algoma, however, was 'disappointed', expressing concern over the vagueness of the decision's wording and concern that the judgement was 'lacking in definition'" (p. 10). "Linda Nicholls, area bishop for Trent-Durham in the diocese of Toronto, noted that while 'public opinion has been moving in this direction for some time', Canadians might not fully understand what medical options are already available -- and like Andrews, she, too, was worried about the vagueness of the language" (p. 10). "For Bishop Jane Alexander of the diocese of Edmonton, it was important to see these developments in light of the church's historical and ongoing role in the provision of care. While the context for that care has changed, the mandate remains the same, she said. 'We've consistently supported in the Anglican church the use of palliative care and pain relief, and we know that pain relief can sometimes risk hastening death, but it's a different field now'" (p. 10).
