Notes
"The ACC [Anglican Consultative Council] is the only instrument of Communion that comprises both ordained and lay members. Due to the relational nature of our Communion, this Instrument is consultative, but it does make strong recommendations regarding decisions and courses of action to the Member Churches. By the end of the meeting members reviewed and voted on 41 such resolutions". One of the resolutions voted on by the more than 80 delegates was one to "adopt a Safe Church Charter protecting vulnerable people. Australian Garth Blake, convener of the Communion's Safe Church Network, explained that society is watching to see what the Communion is doing about abuse in churches. 'There has been a disconnect between what churches say and what has happened', he said. 'People have been severely harmed in our churches. Trust has been lost. The charter is designed to rebuild that trust'." "Other ACC recommendations include Member Churches reviewing their current communications capacity and taking steps to improve it. ACC members were warned that many Provinces were letting the secular media and agenda-driven bloggers tell the Church's story for them. 'In today's world, of instant, global communications almost everyone within reach of a mobile phone or computer can tell their own story,' said the Anglican Communion's Director of Communications, Jan Butter. 'Member Churches can now, more than ever before, ensure that other Communion Churches hear the truth about their life and mission'."
There were three public evening sessions during the course of the meeting -- on peace, the environment and Christian witness. There were other presentations on the Communion's relationships at the global level with other Christian traditions and on the Anglican understanding and use of the Bible (Bible in the Life of the Church Project). The Rt. Rev. Victoria Matthews, Bishop of Christchurch, "spoke on the history and progress of the Anglican Communion Covenant. A member of the Commission mandated to review the unity, faith and order of the Communion, Bishop Matthews explained it was not the Commission's task to promote the Covenant, but rather monitor its reception".
Pages 8-9 include additional photos from ACC-15 with six (6) brief notes including links to websites and also QR codes at the bottom of the pages.

Niagara Falls, Ont., April 19, 2007
Canadian Anglican bishops have nominated four from among their number to be candidates in the election of a successor to Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada.
Archbishop Hutchison, who was elected 12th Primate in 2004, has announced that he will retire after the Anglican General Synod in June [2007]. The synod, the Anglican church's chief governing body, will choose the next primate on June 22 [2007] in Winnipeg.
The procedure to elect a Primate, or national leader, is that bishops nominate no more than five candidates at their last meeting before a General Synod. The bishops, however, do not vote in the actual election. Primates are elected by clergy and lay members of the synod.
Bishops nominated for the election of the 13th Primate are:
- Bishop George Bruce of the diocese of Ontario
- Bishop Fred Hiltz of the diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island
- Bishop Bruce Howe of the diocese of Huron
- Bishop Victoria Matthews of the diocese of Edmonton
Earlier, the bishops considered two motions on the future of the primacy from a task force they previously established. The bishops defeated a motion that would have suspended part of the Canon on the primacy requiring a newly elected bishop to resign his or her diocese. They approved a second motion asking June's General Synod to establish a task force to undertake a "detailed and comprehensive study of the nature, role, duties and authority of the Primate."
The Anglican General Synod, which convenes at the Marlborough Hotel in downtown Winnipeg on June 19, is the church's chief legislative and governing body. It is made up of more than 300 delegates, including lay people, deacons, priests and bishops elected from each of the church's 30 dioceses. General Synod meets every three years.
The primatial election will he held at a nearby church on June 22. The new Primate will be officially installed in office the evening of June 25 [2007].

November 19, 1993 -- The Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, Archbishop Michael Peers, has issued the following statement in response to the episcopal election in the Diocese of Toronto.
The Diocese of Toronto, and the whole of the Anglican Church of Canada, today rejoice in the election of two fine new priests as bishops. Both Michael Bedford-Jones and Victoria Matthews offer gifts of leadership that will complement and add to those already present in others who hold episcopal office.
But in particular, I welcome with profound joy and sheer delight, the election of a woman as bishop in the Church in Canada. The ordination of women to the priesthood in our church has been part of our experience in Canada for 17 years now. During that time we have been blessed by the particular graces that they have brought to ordained ministry. I am sure that it is no accident that our Church is growing more compassionate and nurturing in its pastoral work, more thorough and inclusive in its communication, and more prophetic in its commitment to justice. Though ground-breaking in its effect, today's decision is a natural outcome of years of caring and effective leadership offered by women.
In recent weeks, I have had occasions to participate in different events with the four women who are already bishops in the Anglican Communion. I have been reminded again of the wholeness we seek in Christ's Church, -- indeed in all of society. It is a wholeness which Saint Paul envisaged when he wrote: "There is no longer Jew or Greek, no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus". (Galations 3:28) Today the Spirit of God, through the Synod of Toronto, has helped us further that vision in our time. May it continue to be encouraged among us.
I look forward to working with Victoria and to welcoming her to he place in the national House of Bishops. I have no doubt that she will receive a glad welcome and the whole-hearted support of all her colleagues in episcopal ministry.
