Notes
"The April 8-19 [2016] meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) in Lusaka, Zambia, was marked by a sense of unity and common purpose, according to Canadian delegates Bishop Jane Alexander and Suzanne Lawson". "There had been some uncertainty leading up to the meeting about whether or not disciplinary measures would be imposed on The Episcopal Church (TEC) following a call from the Primates' Meeting in January 2016 for TEC to face 'consequences' for its decision to perform same-sex marriages. But the ACC declined to impose any sanctions. Nor, according to Alexander and Lawson, was there much discussion of Canada's upcoming vote on same-sex marriage -- which, both admitted -- came as a surprise. 'Nobody asked me [about it]', said Lawson. 'I was all ready to engage, [but] no -- I think people were just delighting in the relationships that were being built'". "The meeting saw the election of Alexander to the ACC's standing committee, which means she will be involved in the council's work for the next three to four years until its meeting in 2019".

Notes
"The Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) concluded its 12-day New Zealand meeting optimistic about the future of the Anglican Communion. It also renewed its commitment to addressing gender-based violence, the environmental crisis and social justice issues. Outgoing Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams noted that the work actually questions 'what kind of humanity we're seeking to promote and serve, which is a deeply Christian question'. Suzanne Lawson, Anglican Church of Canada lay delegate, said the meeting proved that 'the Anglican Communion actually works. It's alive and well, it's exciting, it's mission-focused'. The ACC met October 27 to November 7 [2012] in Auckland". The ACC: Passed a resolution of support for the continuing indaba process, describing it as 'honest conversation that works to build community .. and provide a context in which conflict can be resolved'. Urged Anglicans to 'show moral courage' in addressing the cause and impact of environmental change. Heard from the Bible in the Life of the Church Project, that in spite of their diversity, Anglicans everywhere share a 'high common ground' over the place of the Bible in their lives. Adjusted the wording of the fourth Mark of Mission to read: 'To seek to transform the unjust structures of society to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation'. The Canadian Church recommended 'to pursue peace, conflict transformation and reconciliation' as a sixth Mark of Mission in 2007. Passed a resolution calling on the Communion to implement a charter to make churches safer".

"The Anglican Church of Canada has an exciting initiative under way: a web-based network of education and support for people passionate about stewardship. Stewardship in this context is broadly construed, according to Suzanne Lawson, co-ordinator, Together in Mission. 'We're asking: how do we steward everything we've been given by God for God's mission ? Our time, our energy, our financial resources, the world ?" "[T]he church convened a consultation called Rethinking Stewardship. Some 30 Anglicans from across Canada -- all committed to raising the bar in this area -- met in Toronto in September 2012. 'The question was: how can we help at the national level at a time of restraint for everyone ?', says Lawson. Several proposals emerged. The first, launched this past February [2013], is a blog called Growing Good Stewards and posted on The Community at anglican.ca. '"Our purpose is to create a place for conversing, learning, sharing ideas, networking and imagining the future', says Glen Mitchell, blog director and also director of stewardship and planned giving for the diocese of New Westminster. 'Much of the content will be very practical, actionable information framed in the theology of abundance'."

Notes
"The Canadian delegates to the 14th Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) meeting echoed sentiments expressed by other attendees of hope and optimism, albeit tempered by the reality that outstanding issues related to clashing views about human sexuality remain very much on the table". The Canadian delegates were Ms. Suzanne Lawson (lay), the Rev. Stephen Andrews (clergy) and the Rt. Rev. Sue Moxley (episcopal). "Both Bishop-elect Andrews and Bishop Moxley underscored the importance and urgency of the work that lies before a still-to-be appointed body tasked to look at possible changes to the covenant, and the standing committee that will give the final stamp before it's sent out to member churches for approval".
