"[By] Shane Parker".
Essays first published in the Ottawa Citizen 1999-2004.
"The words that follow were written over a period of about six years. Throughout, I worked as an Anglican priest, serving in a very public way as the Dean of a Cathedral, writing about faith regularly in the newspaper, and going about my duties as pastor. .... The interweaving of personal searching with the questions and issues that were posed to me from the lives of other people created occasions to reflect deeply on the faith that I had committed my life to .... But more than being a cause for introspection, these questions called forth expression: not the proclaiming of theology to an anonymous audience that needed to hear certain things, but words that responded to things people wanted to hear about -- theology that had come through and was being spoken into the crucible of human experience. What follows in these chapters is a series of concise reflections in the form of responses to the experiences, questions, issues and situations of many people." -- Intro., pp. 7-8.
Contents: Introduction -- Who is God ? -- What is faith about ? -- How is faith lived out ? -- Is there faith in the world around me ? -- Why go to church ? -- Does prayer make a difference ? -- What role does the Bible play ? -- Is there any sense to all the confusion ? -- Conclusion.
Author is an Anglican priest and dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa.

Notes
"The Church and Law is the theme of this special number of the 'Journal'. This is not a subject that has received extensive scholarly treatment as far as the Anglican Church of Canada is concerned ...". "In the present number of the 'Journal' two of the articles explore Church law -- the functioning of the Supreme Court of the Anglican Church of Canada and the development of the Canon on Marriage. The third article examines the history of civil -- legislative and parliamentary -- acts that govern the way that the Anglican Church of Canada functions in a society that now does not recognize any 'established' church. To this latter article, Chancellor Ronald Stevenson has appended a list of all the relevant legislation, colonial, provincial and federal. To supplement Mr. Justice deP. Wright's article on the Supreme Court, the Editor has added the Court's Judgement and Reasons for Judgement. It was felt readers would appreciate having these texts at hand for consultation".

Prologue
Bishop Hutchison responded to a comment about the national observance (after the September 11th attacks in the United States) which was held on Parliament Hill on Holy Cross Day. He then read a motion from the Interfaith Committee on Canadian Military Chaplaincy, which was sent to the Prime Minister and the speaker of the House. (appendix ii) [See in Notes in electronic database.] Bishop Hutchison reported that he would be meeting with the Minister of Defense and said that he'd like to be able to say he had the support of the House of Bishops.
Bishop Mason said that he had similarly written to the Prime Minister expressing his disappointment in the lack of religious representation.
Text
Resolved that this House supports and concurs with the September motion of the Interfaith Committee on Canadian Military Chaplaincy concerning the omission of any reference to God, religious faith or prayer from the national observance concerning the attacks of September 11th. CARRIED Res. #HB-04-10-01
Notes
Bishop Hutchison reported on the chaplains of the Canadian Forces, saying that the reserve forces were being sent out to service. He thanked his colleagues who had released clergy on the reserve force to do a rota. Bishop Hutchison encouraged the members of the House of Bishops to welcome newly posted chaplains into their dioceses. He said that Anglicans are the second largest denomination in the forces, and that Captain Baxter Park is in charge of recruiting. The minimum requirement for a chaplaincy in the Canadian Forces is an M.Div. and two years experience as a priest.
Bishop Harvey expressed his concern about the time it takes for an applicant to learn whether or not he has been accepted for a chaplaincy position with the Canadian Forces. He asked whether Bishop Hutchison could use his office to speed up the process. Bishop Harvey also spoke about the difficulty experienced by parishes when their priests were accepted, saying that they were not given enough time to prepare for the departure of their priest. (An application for a chaplaincy posting must be confidential so as not to jeopardize the clergy person's relationship with his/her parish. The longer the process takes, the higher the chance that the information will not be confidential and that the parish will find out. Then when the clergy person is accepted to the chaplaincy, he/she candidate is expected to take up the position within a month.) Bishop Hutchison responded to Bishop Harvey saying that there were two streams. He said, the church stream could be expedited, but he had less influence on the military side.
APPENDIX ii
September 18, 2001
Moved by: The Rt. Revd Andrew Hutchison
Seconded by: The Revd Steven Chambers
Whereas the ICCMC represents the faith communities of the nation to the Government of Canada on matters pertaining to the religious and spiritual welfare of the members of the Canadian Forces and their families;
And whereas
Canadians of many faith communities sought common cause in responding to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 in the United States, testing the depths of our moral and spiritual fibre;
The Government of Canada sought and received from the Chaplain General of the Canadian Forces specific advice on the appropriate protocol for a prayerful interfaith response to the terrorist attacks and loss of life, including Canadians;
Virtually every national observance of the horrific events of September 11 was marked by prayer and appeal to religious faith on a broad scale;
Be it resolved that:
This Inter-faith Committee express its profound disappointment and distress to the Government of Canada that Canada was the only nation in the free world whose national observance was devoid of any appeal to God, religious faith or prayer -- an oversight that is contrary to the country's founding principles and the spirituality of its contemporary citizens.
And be it resolved that:
The will to be inclusive interpreted by Government as the exclusion of all spiritual and religious reference in public life is an offense to God and to the citizens of Canada.
Unanimously Carried.
