Notes
"The wife of the Archbishop of Canterbury, a mother, a theologian and author, Jane Williams shares her vision for the Spouses Conference 2008 in this timely interview by the Editor [Jim Rosenthal]".
An interview with Jane Williams about a conference of approximately 30 bishops' wives, mainly from West Africa, organized by Maria Okrofi, wife of the Primate of the Church of the Province of West Africa. Looking forward to the upcoming Lambeth Conference, Ms. Williams said that "what we really want to look at is empowering and enabling the bishops' spouses to be doing the work that they actually are doing. One of the big things of the conference in Ghana that I hope to take on into the Spouses' Conference is this concept of the absolute unique value of each person's contribution".

Prologue
Archbishop Nutter reported that the Primate wrote to the Archbishop of Canterbury, as requested at the November meeting of the House, and received a response to his letter from Canon S. Van Culin's response were distributed to the Bishops.
According to the formula outlined by Canon Van Culin, as developed at the March 1986 meeting of Primates, the Canadian Church is entitled to send three Suffragan Bishops. No provision is being made for the attendance of the wives of Suffragan Bishops at the Lambeth Conference.
The Metropolitans identified various methods of indicating the Suffragan Bishops who should be invited to attend from the Canadian Church. It was agreed that seniority should be the defining factor, but that no more than one Bishop should attend from the same Diocese. If any Suffragan is unable to go because of illness, or chooses not to go, the next senior Suffragan Bishop should take his place. The Metropolitans agreed that this proposal should be placed before the Bishops for their consideration.
Text
That the three Suffragan Bishops senior by Consecration be those designated to attend the Lambeth Conference in 1988, and that if any of those thus indicated are unable to attend, the next senior Suffragan Bishop shall take his place, with not more than one attending from any diocese. CARRIED

"[By] Eileen Carey with Andrew Carey".
"It was while travelling around the Anglican communion and meeting the spouses of many bishops that the urge to 'tell their story' gripped me. Their role in each province is so different, and that governs largely how it is expressed". "Each contributor had the same questionnaire to answer .... These stories were compiled from the returned questionnaires. Some of them were very full of information and others, mainly due to language difficulties, quite sparse. I have not put in anything that was not included by the contributor, althought in the cases of some of those I knew well I would have loved to !" "This book is dedicated to the memory of Susie Chang Him. She died of cancer before she could write her contribution, and her husband and twin girls did it some months after her death. It is included as the Postscript in the book". -- Preface.

Notes
The author, who is the wife of the Most Rev. Frank Griswold, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church since January 1998, spoke on the topic of "The Spirituality of Bishop's Spouses". Speaking of her decisions to change the wording of her original topic from "spirituality" to "theology", the author explains: "Anglicans understand that, along with Scripture and tradition, experience is a fundamental resource for `doing' theology. Much of the Bible, after all is an account of peoples' lives. Our biblical ancestors lived by their knowing or yearning to know the living God; they also told their stories. Can we dare to do the same thing ? In particular, can we speak to each other about our lives as bishops' spouses, about their unique and common identities, and then shape our theological reflections from those perspectives ? ... I would like to suggest that we give back to the Church our own theological reflections learned through the scriptures of our own lives." (p. 17) Contains a number of very thoughtful "provisional and incomplete" "observations about the common life of bishops' spouses" including: "We are am extraordinarily hard-working group who take our vows seriously -- both our baptismal and marriage vows. ..We know the feelings of isolation and loneliness that come from the solitary nature of our unique position within the community. ...We know the difficulty of making a life with an authority that has been derived from our spouses, but which must be eventually earned by us. .... Theological reflection on the nature of God based on our common experience leads me to believe that God is to be found through relationship".

Notes
At the end of the 2008 Lambeth Conference Spouses' Conference, each participant "received a signed copy of 'Marriage, Mitres and Myself' a book chronicling the experiene and reflections on bishops' spouses about what it's like being married to a bishop. Authored by Jane Williams, who is married to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Willliams, the book has been a bestseller, much to the puzzlement of bishops' wives. Each also received a bookmark with the photograph of a vine that had been covered with leaves that they had made early in the conference as they sat in groups and told their stories to each other". "During their conference, which had been structured into story-telling sessions, a theme that often emerged was the sacrifice and work that many bishops' spouses, in particular women, have had to make to support their husbands in their ministries. (Six husbands attended the conference and said that, unlike the women, no expectations were foisted upon them as bishops' spouses.)".

Notes
The 2008 Lambeth Conference will run from 16 July to 3 August 2008. It will include a spouses gathering which will run parallel to the bishops' conference. "The conference is aimed at helping spouses 'learn from each other and to resource ourselves to be God's people for God's missions', said Ms. [Jane] Williams, chair of the planning group". "More than 600 spouses attended the 1998 conference, which for the first time included five husbands (the Communion's first female bishops were consecrated in 1989 and 1990)". "Jan Ferris, who is married to the bishop of Algoma, Ronald Ferris, called the two conferences that she attended 'a privilege'. The morning Bible studies were a highlight, she recalled". "Lynne Samways Hiltz, attended the conference in 1998 for the first time with her husband, Fred Hiltz, who was then diocesan bishop of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island (and now primate of the Anglican Church of Canada). 'You learn what it's like to be in other parts of the Communion', she said". "Anna Burton, who attended her first conference in 1998 with her husband, Bishop Anthony Burton of Saskatchewan noted that, 'the almost overwhelming sense of community was a real high point'". "One sentiment that resonated at the 1998 conference was that spouses' contributions are not always recognized, much less appreciated. 'We know the feelings of isolation and loneliness that come from the solitary nature of our unique position within the community. We also know what it means to be invisible, unrecognized for the work that we do', noted Phoebe Griswold, wife of then-U.S. presiding bishop Frank Griswold, in an address to spouses in 1998. 'We know what it means to be handed a position that comes with no written job description but nonetheless carries many unspoken expectations'". "Bruce Moxley, spouse of Bishop Sue Moxley, diocesan bishop of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island is not planning to attend this year's conference -- his wife's first -- because it means using three of his four weeks' vacation 'to be away at something where we wouldn't be spending much time together' said Bishop Moxley".

Prologue
The Primate indicated the hope that it will be possible for the Bishops' wives to accompany their husbands to England at the time of the Lambeth Conference and requested suggestions re wives' participation in the Conference.
The Primate described the role of Suffragan Bishops in England. He said that, in some instances, Suffragans are territorial Bishops who are active in Diocesan activities and meet as a College of Bishops, while in other situations, they work under the Diocesan's authority. The Primate said that Australia shares the same tradition, while in Africa that pattern has been to create more dioceses.
The Primate said that there is a desire to have more representation from India at the 1988 Lambeth Conference.
Text
We recognize that the numbers and the duties and functions of Suffragan Bishops vary widely in different Provinces of the Anglican Communion.
However, in the Anglican Church of Canada, Suffragan Bishops are very few in number, and share fully in every aspect of episcopal and synodical ministry.
Therefore, the National House of Bishops requests that our Canadian Suffragan Bishops be invited to full and equal participation in the 1988 Lambeth Conference, without prejudice to other decisions about the attendance of Suffragans which may be made with regard to other Anglican Provinces.

The author, wife of Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, reflects on the past year which she says "has been a fascinating mixture of the mundane (moving, learning how to live in a new place and finding my way around) and the extraordinary". "The aim has been simple: to meet with the other Primates in the Anglican Communion, and their spouses, on their own ground and to begin to get to know them and the issues they face. And in the process we have met many other people (bishops, clergy, lay leaders, MU [Mothers' Union] leaders and members)". "Of course, we have met some remarkable people not least my counterparts throughout the world, whose testimony frequently is to seeing need, responding in prayer, seeking to meet it."

"The 1998 Lambeth Conference included -- for the first time -- a separately planned spouses' programme". The four central themes of the Spouses' Conference were: the Role of the Bishop's Spouse, Mission and Evangelism, Social Issues (definitely social responsibility rather than tea and cucumber sandwiches) and the Anglican Communion." The program was available to 639 bishops' spouses including 5 husbands, among them Ian Jamieson who was a speaker. Also included Marion McCall, wife of David McCall the Bishop of Willochra, in Australia, a licensed pilot.
