[TORONTO] April 19, 2005 -- The Rev. Canon Kenneth Kearon, General Secretary of the Anglican Communion, will attend part of a joint meeting of Canadian and U.S. bishops in Windsor, Ont., next week.
"In my early days in this post I welcome any opportunity to meet bishops in their own province and context. Your invitation is therefore very welcome," Canon Kearon wrote to Canadian Primate Andrew Hutchison this week.
In his letter inviting Canon Kearon to attend the meeting, Archbishop Hutchison said: "The intention here is simply to provide an opportunity for you to meet and greet the bishops in a relaxed atmosphere and listen to the presentations and discussions that will be centred around Frontier Mission Work in North America".
Bishops from the Canadian Anglican Church and some of their colleagues from the Episcopal Church in the United States meet once every three years. The Canadian House of Bishops will be meeting next Monday to Wednesday and will b joined by ECUSA bishops for dinner on Wednesday. The joint meeting will conclude with a Eucharist in All Saints parish church in Windsor on Sunday.

Notes
"While the House of Bishops met at the Mount Carmel retreat centre in Niagara Falls, Ont., from Nov. 17 to 21 [2014], the agenda included discussion of some big issues ...". "In an interview, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, acknowledged that 'within this meeting and this house and this church, there's a huge amount of anxiety' about the proposed amendment to the marriage canon. But at the end of their meeting, Hiltz said that he felt encouraged by the tenor of the bishops' discussions". "While discussing what the role of the House of Bishops should be in the church, Hiltz said that the bishops used an aboriginal-style circle to share what each was feeling and their hopes for the house". "The bishops discussed end-of-life issues and have agreed to work with a task force to produce a statement on the issue before the Supreme Court of Canada releases its ruling sometime this spring [2015]".

"The Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran church in Canada (ELCIC) have approved in principle a plan to hold a second joint assembly in 2019. The first joint meeting of the two churches' governing bodies, which drew about 800 delegates, was held in Ottawa in 2013, with the full communion partners generally meeting as one group except when required to meet and vote as separate legal entities. The Anglican House of Bishops and the Lutheran Conference of Bishops met together on Nov. 17 and 18 [2014] in Niagara Falls, Ont." The bishops heard a report that "highlighted the fact that Waterloo Ministries -- where Anglican and Lutheran communities share clergy, facilities and programs -- have grown from 32 to 82 ministries in the last few years". "Bishop Susan Johnson, national bishop of the ELCIC, spoke to the bishops about plans to mark the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation". "The theme will be 'Liberated by God's Grace' and the subthemes, to be examined from 2015 to 2017, are 'Salvation not for sale'; 'Human beings not for sale' (which will focus on trafficking); and 'Creation not for sale'."

"When the House of Bishops met in Niagara Falls, Ont., from April 13 to 17 [2015], 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".

Notes
The Rev. Michael Lapsley, an Anglican priest from South Africa, addressed the November 2011 meeting of the Anglican Church of Canada House of Bishops in Niagara Falls, Ontario. "Michel has no hands. They were blown off when he received a letter bomb in Zimbabwe, where he was living in 1990. He also lost an eye in the attack and suffered significant hearing loss. Michael described his journey from victim to survivor to victor -- a movement from horrific physical and emotional pain to months of rehabilitation, and finally to living life 'as fully as possible'." "In the course of recovery, Michael had to discern the nature of his priestly vocation for the future. Archbishop Desmond Tutu ... encouraged Michael in his work with victims of trauma, who longed for the healing of their bodies and minds and they very souls. At the Institute for Healing of Memories, which Michael heads, personal stories of traumas are 'reverenced'. Those who come to the institute speak of 'recovering their humanity' and 'daring to hope' again". "'Journeys of forgiveness', Michael says, 'are costly, painful and difficult. At the same time, they often involve grace. Journeys of forgiveness require generosity of spirit, and this, to me, is what is often meant by grace'."
