Notes
"Proceeds from the recent 'Amazing Grace' project, which captured the interest of Anglicans across Canada and raised more than $91,000 for the Council of the North, will go towards the establishment of a suicide prevention program with paid staff". "The council intends to hire a part-time suicide prevention co-ordinator by Sept. 1 [2009] who will lay the foundation for the program. The co-ordinator will be hired for a two-year contract and will work out of the synod office of a council member diocese".

[TORONTO] Dec. 15, 2008 -- What started as an orientation exercise for a national communications committee has turned into an unprecedented display of unity and generosity by thousands of members of the Anglican Church of Canada in congregations right across the country.
More than 500 of about 2,000 congregations that make up the Anglican Church of Canada responded to a request to come together in song on Sunday, Nov. 23, by singing the hymn Amazing Grace. As requested, participants videotaped themselves singing the beloved hymn and then deluged the church's General Synod offices in Toronto with the videos.
Since then, more than 500 of these contributions have been posted to YouTube and today, a 10-minute compilation video that includes segments from every contribution received before Dec. 1 will be posted to the Anglican national website.
Canadian Anglican participants involved in the project were also invited to contribute a toonie to support the Anglican Church's Council of the North, a group of dioceses involved in work and ministry in Canada's North. They responded to that request with donations that total more than $30,000 to date.
The project ended up requiring an unexpected tour de force from Lisa Barry, senior producer of Anglican Video which produced the compilation released today—Amazing Together and from website staff who worked virtually around the clock on the YouTube postings.
Amazing Together provides a never-before-seen glimpse of a church united in a simple exercise of worship and faith. And although organizers had no idea of what the response would be when they issued the challenge, that was exactly what it was supposed to do.
A year ago, the Anglican church's communications committee was invited to puzzle over how Canadian Anglicans could come together is a "statement of faith." What form should such a statement take?
The idea of asking all church members to sing Amazing Grace on the same Sunday emerged from that. "From the beginning, several of us—committee members and staff—felt that the idea could be made to happen," says Ms Barry. "We took it from there and the response was overwhelming."
Amazing Together shows Anglicans in song in churches across the country, on beaches in the Maritimes, in small groups in the North, around a fireplace, on a Newfoundland wharf, in a prison—and there is even a contribution put together from Kandahar in Afghanistan. Anglican bishops at last summer's Lambeth conference sang Amazing Grace as did workers in an AIDS hospice in South Africa.
There are bagpipe versions, a kettledrum version, full-accompaniment versions, a cappella versions and even a rap rendition. Amazing Together stands as a strong example of what Canadian Anglicans can do when something captures their imagination, said Archdeacon Michael Pollesel, the General Secretary of General Synod. "We often hear church unity described as a fragile thing," he said. "This demonstrates conclusively that in the hearts and minds of Anglicans from coast to coast to coast, the church is strong and it is united."

"Approved in its capacity as the Board of Directors of the Missionary Society, an increase to the amount of money Council of the North clergy can apply for as a loan toward a vehicle -- from $9,000 to $13,000. Several members pointed out that the increased amount is still too low and a motion was approved requesting a prompt review of the policies regarding the financing of vehicles in Council of the North dioceses".

Notes
Canon John Erb attended the January 2000 meeting of the Council of the North held in the Grey Nuns Centre in Edmonton Alberta. "The Council of the North consists of nine dioceses which are not self-supporting and for the most part have large indigenous populations and two dioceses which have areas located in the north with needs similar. I am happy to say that The Anglican Foundation through many of its funds has been supportive, especially through the gifts of an 'Anonymous Donor'. This particular gift is distributed through the AF at the request of the Council of the North for projects and programs throughout the area and often concerned with native issues. Also included are special gifts, one to do with clergy in crisis, supporting the needs of various clergy and their families needing special help in a crisis situation and an emergency fund, used for clergy, families, parishioners, bishops, staff, for emergencies caused by sickness, breakdowns, sudden family challenges, etc. It is of great assurance that help can be given quickly when needed and requested by the bishop. Recipients have often expressed their deep gratitude for help that has been given. This message is passed on to the donor through the Anglican Foundation office."
