"[By] John Whale".
"Editor: Richard Holloway, Bishop of Edinburgh". -- cover.
Includes bibliography ( p. 96-97) and index..
"This book considers the three main tendencies of Anglicanism (Evangelism, Catholicism and the Middle Way). After looking at doctrine, priesthood, episcopacy, establishment, politics, internationalism, ecumenism and comprehensiveness, it predicts that all three tendencies will survive and may be joined by others. The conclusions and pointers will often be found controversial. But the author believes that `Anglicanism will remain a loose international conglomerate of Christians believing many different things. Its unity will be constantly strained: its members will be constantly tempted to disunity, but not above what most of them are able to bear. Anglicanism has the experience of containing differences, the tolerance of theological adventurousness, the confidence and prestige born of long existence, to carry this off. And truth, that elusive commodity made up of as many parts as matter itself, will be served as a result'." -- Back cover.

"The idea for this book arose originally out of the planning which was being done for the Anglican Congress of 1963. The publication of a small volume, setting forth the subjects that will concern Congress delegates, seemed eminently reasonable. With chapters written by men with particular competence to deal with their respective subjects, it would provide a good background for the discussions and deliberations of those who met together from all parts of the Anglican Communion. .... Therefore, the various authors wrote their chapters with ordinary Church members in mind, all those who are endeavouring to find the frontiers, plan the strategy, and help the Church fulfil its destiny. And it is our hope that 'The Church in the 60's' will, in some measure perhaps, assist the reader in his share of the work. This book has also been written with the small parish group in mind. A leader's guide is available to help groups on the parochial level explore the frontiers of the parish in religious, political, and cultural areas of the modern world. It may also assist them in considering effective parish mobilization and strategy and aid them in fulfilling their vocation and destiny in the Anglican Communion". -- Preface.

"The United Nations is the most influential political organisation in our world today. It exercises vital roles in the areas of peacemaking and peace-keeping, food-aid, development, education and many more. Often criticised and maligned, it is a major player in working towards a just and more equitable international political order. The Anglican Communion has had an Observer at the UN since 1990 ... Through the work of our Observer the voice and concerns of our Provinces are presented to appropriate UN bodies, and relevant programmes, actions and decisions of the UN are conveyed to our churches. The Observer is crucial to our contribution as a world communion to the international scene." Hellen Wangusa, a Kenyan lay woman took up the position of Anglican Observer as of 1 January 2007. One of her first actions was to attend the February 2007 Primates' Meeting in Tanzania where she spoke about the importance of the churches' involvement with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Notes
In an interview, the new Anglican Observer at the United Nations, talks about her work and what Anglicanism can bring to the UN. "The population of Anglicans worldwide is 78 million. Some of these (including the current Secretary General of the UN and former Under Secretary for Children) are Anglicans who are in positions of leadership at national and international levels. They have been nurtured in Anglican traditions, values and Biblical principles. This is a major contribution that may not be easily quantifiable but it cannot be ignored either. .... The United Nations is a secular body that deals with issues of global concern that often have spiritual dimensions. Spiritual and ethical issues often transcend secular provisions for mediation, intervention and restorative justice. As such the member states at the General Assembly are often not well equipped to deal with them. This where the Anglican contribution becomes most significant as one of the bodies with a spiritual mandate". Includes comments on the Millennium Development Goals.

Notes
"There are two fields of thought and action dealt with by Lambeth and Amsterdam specially pertinent to the work of this Council. These are social relationships and international affairs. The year 1948 will probably prove to be an important milestone, possibly a turning point, in Church history, in so far at least as theology bears upon social matters. To Anglicans in particular the meeting of the Bishops of our world-wide Communion has left an impressive series of Resolutions and of Reports accepted as a most helpful directive by clergy and people. The World Council of Churches, while lacking representatives from the powerful Roman Church and of a few national Churches, was, nevertheless, the most representative gathering of Christian people -- appointed delegates from the organized Churches -- since the days of the early Ecumenical Councils". -- Editor's Note.

"The Lambeth 1958 emphasis upon reconciliation comes into sharp focus in the Report of the Committee which considered the `Reconciling of Conflicts between and within Nations' and in the Resolutions, based upon this Report, which were adopted by the Conference as a whole. This present Bulletin contains these excerpts from the Lambeth Report". "This Bulletin begins with a Statement on `The Church and International Affairs' which the Bishop of New Westminster prepared and read before a meeting of the Canadian House of Bishops at Winnipeg in 1957. This paper, a preliminary document for the Lambeth Conference, emphasizes the essential role of the Rule of Law in the affairs of men, It is the Church's task, Bishop Gower says, to proclaim that Human Destiny and Divine Law are inseparable, and to work for the recognition of the Sovereignty of God throughout the world so that the needs and aspirations of men everywhere may have their true fulfillment". -- Intro.

That in the spirit of the Lambeth Conference of 1958 in which the Bishops of the Anglican Communion stated that "it is the Church's privilege as it is its greatest glory, to declare that Word of Reconciliation which God has entrusted to it," this General Synod of The Anglican Church of Canada now in session wishes to express its congratulations to Mr. Cyrus Eaton for his efforts for international understanding through reconciliation by the many discussion groups of concerned leaders in his "Thinker's Retreat" at Pugwash, and prays that such efforts may be blessed with success, and may encourage many others to similar courageous action; and that a copy of this statement be sent to Mr. Eaton immediately.
Text
That the motion be referred to the Executive of the Council for Social Service for consideration.
The amendment was put and CARRIED in both Houses.
