ACC decision regrettable, but of little practical consequence, Canadian primate says

NOTTINGHAM, Eng. (June 23, 2005)
The decision to exclude the Anglican Church of Canada from two Anglican Consultative committees on which it does not sit is regrettable in principle but will have no practical effect, says Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, Primate of the Canadian church.
"We do regret the decision, although we note it was adopted by an extremely narrow margin," Archbishop Hutchison said. "Had out members and our American colleagues been allowed their vote, it would have failed. We regret that the Anglican Consultative Council made such a decision in a forum in which we are not being allowed to participate an in which we have no voice. There is, after all, a pretty fundamental democratic principle that says that when decisions are made that affect you, you are allowed to speak to them".
Archbishop Hutchison added: "Our hope is that the discussions and debates of the past few days will provide impetus for the discussion about homosexuality and the role of gays and lesbians in the church to begin in those parts of the Anglican Communion where they have not yet begun."
The Consultative Council approved a motion affirming a request made by the Primates of the Anglican Communion last February [2005] that the Canadian and U.S. churches "voluntarily withdraw" their members from the meeting now underway.
The affirming motion stipulated, however, that the Primates' request that the Canadian and U.S. churches withdraw from the ACC should be interpreted as including participation on the standing committee, which meets between triennial sessions of the full council, and inter-Anglican finance and administration committee.
Neither Canada nor the United States have members on those two committees and since their members at this meeting are not participants, they are not eligible for election.
Earlier in the meeting, in response to another request made by the Primates, representatives of the Canadian church made a presentation explaining where it is on the controversial issue of blessing same-sex unions. The U.S. church made a similar presentation explaining how it came to consecrate an openly gay man as bishop.
Archbishop Hutchison, who is scheduled to return to Canada today, said he would be making a full report to the Canadian Church in a statement that will be issued early next week.

Notes
"An attempt to eject Anglicans from the US and Canada from all meetings of the Anglican Communion for the next three years was narrowly defeated on Wednesday". "The ACC [Anglican Consultative Council] delegates went into a closed session on Wednesday afternoon, which stretched an hour over time. Eventually it emerged that they had held a secret ballot about the clause. It was rejected by 30 votes to 28, with four abstentions". "The original resolution had been proposed by Stanley Isaacs (South East Asia), and supported by representatives from several other African provinces, among them the Most Rev. Peter Akinola, Primate of Nigeria. The only English supporter was Elizabeth Paver". "The other significant vote on Wednesday was to change the ACC constitution to include the 37 Primates as ex-officio members. The move will increasing the member from 70 to 115, and tip the balance heavily towards ordained members".

TORONTO, May 25, 2005
The Anglican Church of Canada has announced the names of four people who will respond to a request that the church make a presentation to the Anglican Consultative Council next month on actions the church has taken in the area of same-sex blessings.
As well as the four presenters, Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, has announced that he will attend at least part of the meeting of the Consultative Council in Nottingham, Eng., the week of June 19 [2005].
In addition, three regularly elected representatives of the Canadian Church to the Anglican Consultative Council will attend the meeting, though they have been instructed by the Council of General Synod not to participate in the proceedings.
The unusual measures are as a result of a statement issued last February [2005] following a meeting of the Primates of the worldwide Anglican Communion. After a discussion of tensions in the Anglican Communion arising principally from the election of a gay bishop in the U.S. Episcopal Church and the decision by one Canadian diocese to bless committed same-sex unions, the Primate issued a communique asking the two North American churches to "voluntarily withdraw" from the June [2005] meeting.
In subsequent meetings, the governing councils of both the Canadian and U.S. churches voted to send their members to the Anglican Consultative Council "to set out the thinking behind the recent actions of their Provinces".
The Canadian presenters will to this special hearing will be:
- The Very Rev. Peter Elliott, Dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver and prolocutor of General Synod.
- Canon Robert Falby, Chancellor and lay canon of the Diocese of Toronto and a member of General Synod.
- The Rev. Stephen Andrews, President and Vice-Chancellor of Thorneloe University, member of General Synod for the Diocese of Algoma and a member of the Primate's Theological Commission. - Ms. Maria Jane Highway, a member of the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples, Indigenous partner to General Synod from the Diocese of Brandon and a member of the Faith, Worship and Ministry Committee of General Synod.
The Anglican Consultative Council meets every three years in different part of the world. It consists of lay, clergy and episcopal members and is a forum where all Anglican Provinces can share and exchange information and coordinate common actions.
Attending the June [2005] meeting as elected members from the Canadian Church will be:
- The Rt. Rev. Sue Moxley, Suffragan Bishop of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island;
- The Rev. Canon Allen Box of the Diocese of Ottawa, and
- Ms. Suzanne Lawson of the Diocese of Toronto, a member of the Financial Management and Development Committee.

Anglican Council of General Synod to decide on withdrawal from key meeting

TORONTO, May 2, 2005 -- The Anglican Church of Canada's governing council, meeting in Mississauga, Ont. later this week, is set to decide on a request that the Canadian church voluntarily absent itself from a key Communion meeting.
The Council of General Synod (CoGS) will also address another request that the church impose a moratorium on the blessing of same-sex unions at its meeting at the Queen of Apostles Renewal Centre, Mississauga, Ont., May 6-8 [2005].
(CoGS is the chief governing boy of the Anglican Church of Canada. It is the body that oversees the implementation of General Synod decisions and any matters referred to it by the Primate. It meets twice a year between sessions of the General Synod.)
Members of CoGS will be responding to the Anglican Primates' Communique, which the heads of provincial churches issued after their meeting in Dromantine, Northern Ireland, in February [2005].
(Last month, the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church in the United States agreed on behalf of the U.S. church to honour the request.)
The Anglican Consultative Council is made up of bishops, priests and lay people from each of the worldwide Anglican Communion's 39 provinces and is considered an `instrument of unity'.
The other major issue before CoGS is a proposal for a moratorium on blessings of same-sex unions made by a special commission that examined how the communion can stay together in light of growing controversies around sexual issues. In its report -- The Windsor Report -- the international commission requested such a moratorium.
Archdeacon Jim Boyles, General Secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada, says that a process for discussions has been prepared for Council members before they vote on the issues.
At CoGS on May 6 [2005], he said, Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, the Canadian Primate, will talk about the Primates' meeting in Northern Ireland.
This will be followed by a series of presentations by General Synod committees that have considered the matter. Council will also hear from youth, from the conservative group Essentials, and from Integrity, group that advocates for the full inclusion of gay and lesbian people in the church. Lutheran partners will also address the issue. The council, which ultimately makes the decision, will also consider positions on this issue taken by General Synod committees and a recent statement from the House of Bishops.
Friday evening, Council members will focus on the Windsor report. Council will also hear from the Primate's Theological Commission which was asked by General Synod 2004, to consider whether the blessing of same-sex unions is a matter of doctrine.
Council is expected to vote on the key issues on Saturday evening (May 7).
CoGS will also consider a host of resolutions and motions dealing with the work of the church and review General Synod's budget for 2005.
The Council's deliberations are normally public, although it does have the option to go into closed session.
