"The election of a new primate [the Most Rev. Linda Nicholls] and the establishment of a self-determining Indigenous Anglican church were only some of the highlights of the 42nd General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, which met July 10-16 in Vancouver. In these seven days, General Synod took concrete steps in helping realize the dream of a fully self-determining Anglican Church of Canada and advance reconciliation. It affirmed the creation of the Jubilee Commission, tasked with finding 'just, sustainable and equitable' ways of funding the Indigenous church. Synod also approved the creation of a permanent committee to carry on the work of the Primate's Commission on Discovery, Reconciliation and Justice, established in 2013. And, in a speech that brought many members of General Synod to their feet, outgoing Primate Archbishop Fred Hiltz apologized, on behalf of the church, for the spiritual harm it had historically inflicted on Indigenous peoples". "A vote to replace the 'Book of Common Prayer's' existing prayer for the conversion of the Jews with a new prayer for reconciliation with them -- written in consultation with the Canadian Rabbinic Caucus, and approved by the Prayer Book Society of Canada (PBSC) -- passed its first reading". "The same day, General Synod signed on to and endorsed 'A Common Word', a letter inviting Christians and Muslims to dialogue". A resolution of sorts was reached on the often painful discussion of same-sex marriage, with the House of Bishops recommending dioceses make their own decisions on the matter in the wake of a vote against changing the marriage canon. There were also votes urging the church to adopt new ecological practices, the approval of new liturgical texts, and much more -- all of it made possible by the donations of Anglicans like you".

"This program is composed of three Anglican-Muslim community conversations about transgression, penitence, and transformation. The goal is to address the need for understanding, awareness, and education among Muslims and Christians in an atmosphere of respectful dialogue, especially where there has been intolerance, injustice, and violent behaviour".

"'What do we who are not Muslims really know about what Muslims believe ?' This was the question that inspired the Rev. Natasha Brubaker Garrison to invite Imam Syed Soharwardy to participate in an Imam-in-Residence program at St. Martin's Anglican Church in Calgary, where she serves as rector. Soharwardy, who follows the Sufi tradition of Islam, chairs the Al Madinah Calgary Islamic Assembly and is the founder of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada". "(In 2011, there were 25,920 Muslims living in Calgary, representing 2.6 per cent of the population.)" "But the dialogue has gone both ways, and Soharwardy says that his community has also learned much through the experience. 'There are many Muslim people who have never been in their entire life inside a church. They have never had the opportunity to see what a church looks like from the inside'."

"A Leamington, Ont., church is renting out space in its basement to local Muslims for use as a mosque. Since this spring [[2017], Muslim worship has been held in the basement of St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church, diocese of Huron, says the church's rector, the Rev. Andrew Wilson". "Najam Jutt, who leads prayers for the group, says the church basement is a big improvement over the rented office space they were using before. It's roomier, and, more importantly, it's a powerful symbol of religious tolerance, he says". "It originated ultimately from the church's work sponsoring and assisting refugees in the area. In September 2016, the church invited some Syrian refugees to attend its annual picnic, including a tour of the church. As Ramadan -- the Muslim holy month of dawn-to-dusk fasting -- approached this spring [2017], a member of the group inquired about renting space in the church".

"For the Rev. Scott Sharman, animator for ecumenical and interfaith relations for the Anglican Church of Canada, such incidents [as the March 2019 Christchurch] underscore the need for Christians to take a stand against hate and promote dialogue between the world's two largest faiths. At the November 2018 meeting of the Council of General Synod (CoGS), Sharman presented a resolution calling for the council to affirm efforts by the department of faith, worship and ministry to support Christian-Muslim dialogue under the banner of 'A Common Word Between Us and You', working in parallel with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) as a full-communion partner project. A global initiative inspired by a letter signed by 138 Muslim leaders in 2007-2008 -- subsequently endorsed by more than 200 Christian leaders, including former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams -- 'A Common Word' invites Christians and Muslims to come together for open dialogue and seek common ground to work towards peace" (p. 1, 12). "Incidents such as the [March 2019] New Zealand massacre, the acts of intimidation targeting Edmonton mosques, and the two-year anniversary of the Quebec City mosque shooting 'highlight again how important that is, and that this isn't just a problem that exists in other parts of the world', Sharman adds" (p. 12). "'One of the unique things about 'A Common World Alberta' is that it is an annual event that brings in the same people over and over again', says Ibrahim Long, a Muslim chaplain and teacher who has attended the dialogue for five years" (p. 13). "Jane Samson, an Anglican lay reader at Holy Trinity Old Strathcona and a history professor at the University of Alberta, describes growing hate crimes as the result of complex global processes and events, from 9/11 and the Syrian refugee crisis to economic and technological changes" (p. 13).

"'Calgary church reaches out to Muslims' (Nov. 2014, p. 3) was immensely encouraging in showing us how brotherly love and respect, taught by all religions, can triumph over distrust and hatred. .... It was discouraging to read about the verbal assault on Imam Soharwardy, but such ethnic (or other) slurs tell you nothing about the person assaulted, but a lot about the person who uttered them. I would like to thank both the Rev. Natasha Brubaker Garrison and Imam Soharwardy for their leadership in showing us the power of brotherly love. They are an inspiration for us all".

Notes
The writer expresses disappointment that the July 2013 Joint Assembly passed a resolution on homelessness. "My expectation is that the Anglican church will be able, at some point in time, to break out of its shortsighted and limited view of the Christian world and address the main issues of our time; with the greatest and most compelling being the horrible and acute suffering of brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the Middle East and the Muslim world. The ongoing thundering silence on these issues from the Anglican church and the 'Anglican Journal' is regrettable. At this moment in the life of the church, interminable interfaith dialogues and feel-good projects do not cut it".
