Notes
A consultation of 20 Aboriginal Anglican leaders met in Winnipeg, Man., from 23-26 April 1994. "The group, which included members of the church's Council for Native Ministries and Aboriginal members of other national committees, presented a statement to the church's national executive council in May [1994]. The statement invites the Anglican Church 'to covenant with us, the indigenous Anglicans of Canada, in our vision of a new and enriched journey'. 'We were elated by how clearly we all felt led to this unanimous vision', said Donna Bomberry, chair of the Council for Native Ministries. .... 'We feel like new missionaries', said the Rev. Arthur Anderson, an Aboriginal member of the national executive council. 'We are bringing a proposal to our church for a new spiritual relationship between ourselves and non-native Anglicans'". "Aboriginal people are estimated to make up about 4 percent of Canadian Anglicans. There are approximately 210 Aboriginal congregations, 70 Aboriginal clergy, and two suffragan bishops".
The text of "A New Covenant": "We representatives of the indigenous people of the Anglican Church of Canada, meeting in Winnipeg from the 23 to 26 April, 1994, pledge ourselves to this covenant for the sake of our people and in trust of our Lord and saviour, Jesus Christ: Under the guidance of God's spirit we agree to do all we can to call our people into unity in a new, self-determining community with the Anglican Church of Canada. To this end, we extend the hand of partnership to all those who will help us build a truly Anglican Indigenous Church of Canada. May God bless this new vision and give us grace to accomplish it. Amen".

Notes
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Trinity 1999. A series of 11 short reports from different regions and countries describing the churches' response to the problem of prostitution. "Prostitution has a long history, and the attitude of the Church has ranged from this acceptance of `the oldest profession' as a necessary evil, to outright condemnation. As we approach the third millennium, there seems little doubt that both prostitution and trafficking in women and children are one the increase. It is a global problem. Political and economic pressures are fuelling the sex trade, sometimes in new areas". "The most vulnerable and abused of all are the children. As the articles from individuals and organisations working in Thailand, the Philippines, Africa, Hong Kong and South America make clear, child prostitution is flourishing in many countries. Increasing numbers of boys and young men are being involved, as well as girls and young women" (p. [19]).
