TORONTO, Nov. 5, 2004
Canadian Anglican bishops meeting this week in Saskatoon, Sask., have unanimously declared the Windsor Report of the Lambeth Commission on unity in the Anglican Communion to be an important document worthy of study by the whole church.
Without dissent, the bishops approved a motion that calls on Canadian Anglicans to respond to the report in time for a meeting of the Primates of the Communion that will be held in Belfast next February [2005].
The bishops also voted unanimously to ask the Canadian Primate, Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, to write a pastoral letter to the Canadian Church asking Anglicans to consider the report and send their responses to him.
The Lambeth Commission was created by Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams more than a year ago to consider how the world-wide Anglican Communion can preserve its unity in the face of controversies around issues such as the ordination of a gay bishop in the United States and the blessing of same-sex unions in a Canadian diocese.
The commission under the chairmanship of Archbishop Robin Eames of Armagh, submitted its report last month. The commission conducted an exhaustive study of Anglican unity and the stresses it faces and made several recommendations including issuing a call for "expressions of regret" on the part of some bishops and churches whose actions have distressed others in the communion. Bishops who have intervened in the affairs of dioceses other than their own are also asked to express regret and refrain from such interventions in the future.
The report also includes a model "covenant" to more closely bind provinces of the Anglican Communion.
Anglican Primates from around the world are to bring their churches' responses to the Belfast meeting, and the Canadian Church has set up a process to gather those responses.
On another matter, the bishops also approved a document entitled "Shared Episcopal Oversight" which provides a model through which parishes and congregations that dissent from a decision on the blessing of same-sex unions made by their dioceses can be placed, temporarily, under the care of a bishop from outside the diocese.
The model described in "Shared Episcopal Oversight" also provides for a process of reconciliation where agreement between certain parishes or congregations and the diocese's bishop cannot be reached. In both cases, the diocesan bishop is involved in the process.
The document says that "shared Episcopal ministry" is based on a spirit of reconciliation, cooperation and good will.
The meeting of Anglican bishops is held twice a year and brings together bishops from each of the Canadian Anglican church's 30 dioceses from across the country.

Notes
A review of the history, mandate and working of the Lambeth Commission which was established by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, following the meeting of the Primates of the Anglican Communion in Lambeth Palace, London, in October 2003. "The primates made it quite clear that the issue they wanted addressed by the Commission centred on questions of communion not sex: given the standard of teaching, adopted on human sexuality at the Lambeth Conference 1998, how could the Communion maintain the `highest degree of communion possible' in the face of the consecration of a bishop [Gene Robinson of New Hampshire] whose lifestyle challenged that teaching. The situation in New Westminster, which up to that point had occupied much time in the councils of the Communion, was added to its work, but very much in the shadow of this new development". The commission was chaired by Archbishop Robin Eames and held three plenary residential meetings including one at St. George's College in Windsor, England, and one at the Kanuga Conference Center in North Carolina.
Also includes inset article/section entitled: The Windsor Report 2004 : The Report of the Lambeth Commission on Communion : A Summary Guide.

Prologue
Archbishop Hutchison reminded the House that the task for the first session on the Windsor Report was to review the document. The presenters for the sessions were: Bishop Tottenham, Bishop Ferris, Bishop Moxley and Bishop Johnson.
Bishop Tottenham reviewed Section A of the report ('The Purposes & Benefits of Communion'). Bishop Ferris reviewed Section B ('Fundamental Principles') of the report. Bishop Moxley reviewed Section C ('Our Future Life Together'). Bishop Johnson reviewed Section D ('The Maintenance of Communion'). Each of the bishops ran through the main points of the sections they were reviewing.
Archbishop Hutchison noted that the covenant was listed as an appendix. He requested that the bishops not give the covenant the same weight as the report.
Archdeacon Boyles reported that he had just returned from the meeting of the ECUSA Executive Council which had also spent time discussing the Windsor Report.
The General Secretary informed the House of Bishops that the General Synod was collecting responses to the Windsor Report for Archbishop Hutchison to take with him to the Anglican Communion Primates' Meeting in Northern Ireland in February 2005. A Windsor Report Response Task Force has been established to collect responses from the Canadian Church. The task force will meet at the end of January [2005].
Membership of the Response Task Force includes: Dr. Ellie Johnson (chair), Bishop Michael Bedford-Jones, Bishop Peter Coffin, Ms. Cynthia Haines, the Rev. Canon Linda Nicholls, and two bishops. The House of Bishops was asked to choose two representatives for the Task Force. Bishop Johnson and Bishop Cowan were selected.
The General Secretary said the task for the day was to answer questions in small groups:
- What was your reaction to the Windsor Report ?
- What suggestions do you have to engage diocese[s] and others in responding to the report ?
The bishops reported back and then held a discussion in plenary.

Notes
The members of the Lambeth Commission met for the first time at St. George's House, Windsor, England from 9-13 February 2004. The Commission was established following the Primates' Meeting at Lambeth Palace, London, in October 2003. The commission, which is due to report to the Archbishop of Canterbury in September 2004, has organized into small working groups to study and reflect on five key topics: "Issues of process in the Anglican Communion; The nature and purposes of Communion; The obligations of Communion Authority; The role of the instruments of unity in preserving fellowship". The Commission "expressed its sadness over the `strident language' being used in the debate now besetting the Anglican Communion over the issues of openly gay clergy and same sex unions". "The commission is saddened that tensions within the Communion, exacerbated by the use of strident language, have continued to rise in recent months, (and) requests all members of the Anglican Communion to refrain from any precipitate action, or legal proceedings, which would further harm `the bonds of communion' in the period whilst it completes it work. Mission and ministry, including prayer for unity, remain the priorities".
A complete list of the Commission's members is published here. It includes the Rev. Canon Alyson Barnett-Cowan, Anglican Church of Canada. The text of presentations to the Commission and the statement from the Commission can be found on its web site at: www.anglicancommunion.org/ecumenical/commissions/lambeth.index.cfm

TORONTO, Nov. 15, [2004]
Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, has asked members of the church to send him their personal responses to the Windsor Report on unity in the Anglican Communion.
In the second segment of "+Andrew: Conversations with the Primate" which will be posted to the church's national web site tomorrow, Archbishop Hutchison summarizes the contents of the Windsor report and the process through which responses to it will be gathered. Initially, all Anglican primates are to bring their own church's responses to a meeting of primates in Belfast next February [2005].
The Windsor report summarizes findings of the Lambeth Commission created by Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams. The commission was asked to consider ways in which the world-wide Anglican communion can stay together in the light of stresses created by issues such as the blessing of same-sex unions in one Canadian diocese and the election of a gay bishop in the U.S. Episcopal Church.
In his webcast, however, Archbishop Hutchison stresses that Canadian Anglicans should respond to the issue of unity, not to issues that threaten unity. He invites Canadian Anglicans to send their responses to the Windsor report to Windsor@national.anglican.ca
The second segment of "+Andrew: Conversations with the Primate" will be posted to the Anglican Church of Canada website -- www.anglican.ca at 10 a.m. EST. People may view or download the webcast at a time convenient to them, and are invited to write to Archbishop Hutchison at Andrew@national.anglican.ca
The webcast is produced by Anglican Video; production is financially assisted by the Anglican Foundation.
