Notes
"A homily preached by [the Rev.] Stephen Reynolds on 11 April 2002 at All Saints' Cathedral, Halifax, and revised for a Requiem Mass at Trinity College Chapel on 30 April 2002." Eugene Fairweather "was a very private man who lived a very public career as a priest whose vocation, whose ministry, who very life, was to do theology, and as a theologian who considered it his discipline's duty to serve the Church, to build up the people of God in the faith which seeks understanding". He was particularly active and influential, in Canada and throughout the Communion, as a participant in the Anglican Communion's dialogues with the Roman Catholic and Orthodox communions. Fr. Fairweather selected the readings for the requiem liturgy (Isaiah 25:6-9; Revelation 21: 1-17; John 6:37-40) himself and Reynolds ends by saying: "Eugene was a theologian to the end. It is the calling and duty of theologians to remind the Church that our faith is not about us. Even as they speak and, by speaking, call attention to themselves, they are to point us away from their own presence to the presence of God in Christ. This Eugene has done in his final office and service; and for that service, for all his ministry as priest and theologian now brought to this end, we do indeed bid him adieu, `to God'."

Notes
Fr. Eugene Fairweather "was a key figure in ARCIC (Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission), passionate about reunion with Rome, and known at home for his opposition to the Plan of Union with the United Church of Canada. When he spoke in diocesan synod, or at General Synod, people paid attention". As one of the best known Anglo Catholics it was widely expected that Fairweather would "give the theological `coup de grace' to the ordination of women" debate in the Anglican Church of Canada. The author recalls a debate in which she participated as a theology student in which she spoke in favour of the ordination of women and Fr. Fairweather opposed. "To my considerable surprise we won the debate. But it was not my brilliant oratory ... I believe that it was Eugene's lack of conviction on the topic. Though he was publicly opposed to the ordination of women, he had privately been persuaded that, theologically, it was the right move." "At the General Synod of 1975, Eugene Fairweather did not argue against the ordination of women as his followers had steadfastly hoped. He did argue for more time for implementation". "I never heard him give a spirited defence of the ordination of women, though he showed his solidarity early on. It was more that he had been persuaded by his reading and reflection upon the tradition of the Church that this was a matter indifferent, a question not of the essence but of custom. As the Primate, Michael Peers, recalled at Eugene's Requiem at St. Mary Magdalene's, Eugene had lived by the maxim he had first articulated at General Synod in Quebec City [in 1975]: `Whatever the word `tradition' means, it does not mean that whatever has not been done cannot be done'."
Author is Director of Faith, Worship and Ministry for the Anglican Church of Canada and is a former tutor in Theology for Dr. Fairweather, Trinity College, Toronto.

Notes
This entire issue, which is inset into vol. 9 no. 4 (Pentecost 2003) is here presented as "a theological contribution to The Baptism Project, LC's [i.e. Liturgy Canada's] attempt to foster dialogue about the process of Christian Initiation. Dr. Holeton offers an extensive and, we believe, very important historical account of Fr. Fairweather's significant contribution both the BAS and, even more importantly, to a renewed understanding of the theologically necessary link between Baptism and Eucharistic fellowship." -- From Editorial by John Hodgins to vol. 9 no. 4 (Pentecost 2003), p. 3.
"Eugene Fairweather's contributions to the work of the national Doctrine and Worship Committee (D&W) and to the Book of Alternative Services (BAS) lay primarily in two areas: unmuddling the impasse between the House of Bishops (HoB) and D&W in the work towards new rites of Christian Initiation and drafting the rites of Ordination" (p. 1).
The article is a concise and penetrating analysis of the development of the "new" theology of baptism and Christian initiation (including the issue of admission to Communion) which took place in Canada between 1969 and 1985. It focuses on the controversy and conflict between the Doctrine and Worship Committee (and its sub-committees and task forces) and the House of Bishops. Fairweather's pastoral, political and theological contributions are described, especially his crucial report delivered to the October 1981 [* See paragraph below] meeting of the Joint Task Force on Christian Initiation entitled "Christian Initiation : our Present Situation" which included "A Modest Proposal" and set out seven key principles about baptism and Christian initiation.
*N.B. A typo, two thirds of the way down the second column on page 4, says October 1982 instead of 1981. Footnotes 12-14 on page 8 confirm that the report was in fact presented in October 1981

An editorial for the double edition (vol. 9, no. 4 Pentecost 2003 and its insert companion vol. 10, no, 1 June 2003) which mark an auspicious milestone for "Liturgy Canada" -- its tenth volume/decade. Also notes the existence of Liturgy Canada's web site "www.liturgycanada.ca, on which we are gradually archiving all of the back issues of LC". This issue is particularly dedicated to Eugenic Fairweather, one of Canada's "notable contributors and personalities in the development of the Church's liturgy and mission". "He contributed in a unique way to theological reflection and liturgical renewal in the life of the Anglican Church of Canada (e.g. Unity Dialogues and the BAS), the worldwide Anglican Communion (e.g. the 1962 Anglican Congress in Toronto and various Lambeth Conferences), and to what he understood as the Great Tradition in the ecumenical movement (e.g. ARCIC and WCC Faith and Order dialogues)." "`Liturgy Canada' is honoured to present the reflections of some of those who knew the Reverend Dr. Eugene Fairweather as priest, theologian, academic, controversialist, pastor and friend".
