Notes
"Leaders of the Common Cause Partnership, a coalition of conservative Anglicans in Canada and the U.S., released a draft constitution on Dec. 3 [2008] for a new Anglican province that they propose will be defined by theology rather than a geographic location". "Bishop [Robert] Duncan [former Episcopal Bishop of Pittsburgh] acknowledged that the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada are still the only churches recognized by the Archbishop of Canterbury and the structures of the Anglican Communion". "Soon after the [Dec. 3, 2008] announcement, the GAFCON [Global Anglican Future Conference] primates, whose provinces comprise up to 40 million Anglicans, mainly in Africa, issued a statement of support and blessing for the formation of the new province". "Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, recently said that he finds the idea of creating a new province defined by theological differences 'disturbing'." "Canon Charlie Masters is the general secretary of the Common Cause Partnership and also serves as the executive director of ANiC (Anglican Network in Canada), which held its first synod in November [2008] in Burlington, Ont. ANiC members are excited about the new province, he said."

"The following is the first of two lectures Archbishop Eames delivered last summer [2005] at the Virginia Theological Seminary's convocation. It is published here with permission".
"It is debatable if the Anglican Communion has faced a more searching period, more public scrutiny and more transparent heart-searching than in the past two years". "Has the Anglican obsession with sexuality been merely the tip of an iceberg hiding other deeper issues, which will ultimately dictate the future of the Anglican Communion ?" "With few exceptions the Anglican north and west began to recognize the extent of internal diversity which had existed long before the name of Gene Robinson became known internationally". Archbishop Eames goes on to discuss what are commonly known as "the bonds of affection" and the pressures on them including the legacy of colonialism; the development of autonomous provinces and the fact of inculturation in different societies; the Anglican avoidance of a central authority akin to the central curia of Rome; and tensions not just between provinces but also within provinces, dioceses and even parishes. "Such questioning brings me to another and perhaps more controversial issue. Is the real question about authority rather than sexuality ? Not just authority in terms of the authority of interpretation of Holy Scripture, but authority to be in communion among diverse and autonomous Provinces ...". The author's involvement in the Lambeth Commission demonstrated evidence that "cultural development across our Communion had become an equal if not a dominant ingredient within the bonds of affection. In saying that I need to be aware that conservative Anglicanism resents any argument that places cultural difference above questions of theological principle. .... Am I alone in thinking that at the root of those clashes [between conservative a liberal argument], irrespective of our personal allegiances or preferences, lies the failure of succeeding generations of Anglicans to accept that there are parameters to divergence in scriptural interpretation, there are boundaries to ecclesiological autonomy and there are limitations to what a world family of vague technical relationships can endure and still remain a cohesive entity." He considers the possible dilemmas "associated with what could be called `the practical working of communion'" and especially the potential effects on Anglican organizations that span provinces e.g. the Missionary Societies and the Mothers Union. "The impressions of the Anglican Communion I gained in the preparation of the Windsor Report are dominated by one word -- pain". He offers, from his personal experience, one possible solution for the Commission -- the concept of reconciliation, which he defines and outlines as a process. "Is it just possible that future generations will look at this [current] time not just as a negative era for Anglicanism but rather as an inevitable sign of growth, a sign of maturity even in the history of a most diverse world Christian family ?" "I have tried to point out some of the consequences of an international Church body in which aspiration to bonds is more visible than application to their realities. As far back as 1920 the Lambeth Conference concluded: `The Churches represented in (the Communion) are indeed independent, but independent with the Christian freedom which recognises the restraints of truth and love. They are not free to deny the truth. They are not free to ignore the fellowship'. The Windsor Report took this question and commented: `This means that any development needs to be explored for its resonance with the truth, and with the utmost charity on the part of all -- charity that grants that a new thing can be offered humbly and with integrity, and charity that might refrain from an action which might harm a sister or brother'."

"The Anglican Communion has announced that Sudan is to become a separate Province in its own right. Currently Sudan is within the Anglican Province of South Sudan and Sudan. The Secretary General of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon, described it as a 'welcome development' that will help connect Christians there with Anglicans in the worldwide Communion. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will travel to Sudan for the inauguration of the new Province on July 30th [2017]. The Chair of the Anglican Consultative Council, the Archbishop and Primate of Hong Kong, Paul Kwong, expressed joy at the announcement. 'I send my warmest and heartiest congratulations to the Church of Sudan on your inauguration as the 39th Province of the Anglican Communion. The birth of a new member province brings not only joy and excitement to the global Anglican family but also richness, encouragement and hope'." [Text of entire article.]

"The Canadian house of bishops will discuss this month [October 2008] how best to respond to renewed proposals for moratoria on the blessing of same-sex unions, the ordination of persons living in same-sex unions to the episcopate, and cross-border interventions" (p. 1). "[T]hree primates -- Archbishop Hiltz, Archbishop de Andrade, and Bishop Jefferts Schori -- have repeatedly asked Archbishop Venables to stop meddling in the internal affairs of their provinces. Archbishop Venables has, of his own accord, been providing episcopal oversight to churches that are in serious theological dispute with their respective provinces over the issue of sexuality. Archbishop [Rowan] Williams has said he will do his best to facilitate the request [for a meeting of the concerned primates]" (p. 1). "Archbishop Hiltz said that the call for moratoria would also be 'a huge pastoral challenge' for bishops of four diocese that have pending requests for their synods for the approval of same-sex blessings 'given the kind of strong majority votes those synods' had" (p. 6). "Already, conservative primates who boycotted the conference and formed a council for the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) have announced plans for church plantings and the possibility of creating a new province in North America" (p. 6). "Asked about GAFCON's plan to set up a North American province, [Archbishop Hiltz] said 'the province has to be in communion with the See of Canterbury and it's the Anglican Consultative Council that determines (whether a province can be set up), not a group of primates and bishops, not even the Archbishop of Canterbury'" (p. 6).

Notes
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, presided over the ceremony in All Saints Anglican Cathedral, Khartoum, on 30 July 2017 which inaugurated the province of Sudan as the 39th province of the Anglican Communion. "The primate of the province, Archbishop Ezekiel Kondo -- who was installed as Archbishop during the service -- was thrilled by the occasion. He also thanked the Sudanese government and said it was significant it had sent representatives including a minister. The Archbishop of Canterbury ... presented Archbishop Ezekiel with a primatial cross. He said the birth of a new province was a 'rare and precious' event" (p. 6). "Sudan is predominantly Muslim but has around one million Christians. Archbishop Justin spoke of seeing Christians and Muslims 'co-existing powerfully and effectively' when he had visited the southern diocese of Kadugli a day earlier" (p. 7). "Sudan has been an internal province within the Episcopal Church of South Sudan and Sudan. The new province has five dioceses" (p. 7). "The last province to join the Anglican Communion was Hong Kong, in 1998. Its primate, Archbishop Paul Kwong said it was a great privilege to be at the service" (p. 7). "There has been an Anglican presence in Sudan since the first mission was established at Omdurman in 1899 by the CMS [Church Missionary Society]. Since then Sudan has come under the oversight of the Archbishops of Canterbury and Jerusalem. It applied to become a separate province in 2016. The move was approved after a fact-finding trip led by Archbishop Josiah. Afterwards he said he'd been impressed by what he saw and described the people as 'infectious'. None of those packed into All Saints cathedral for the inauguration could doubt that" (p. 7).
