Toronto, Feb. 13, 1980 -- For immediate release
Glasgow and Ayreshire, Scotland and Cape Town, South Africa would seem to be unlikely birth places for Anglican missionaries to Canada's frozen northern landscape. Nevertheless, three of five budding missionaries who this month were awarded scholarships hail from those distant spots.
The awards were the Archbishop Owen Memorial Scholarships which are given to students in the last year of their theological training who have agreed to take up "missionary work either in Canada or overseas." The Chairman of the Committee which makes the annual awards, the Rt. Rev. H.V. Stiff, of Toronto, said that both academic standing and financial need are taken into account in making the annual $500 awards.
James Bell was born and received his early education in Glasgow, Scotland. His varied background is indicated by his educational affiliations, having attended Springburn College of Engineering, Glasgow Bible Training Institute and now Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto. Married, with two children, Mr. Bell will be serving in the Diocese of the Arctic, particularly in the Baffin Islands area.
Thomas McQuiston, the other Scot in the group, shares an equally varied background. Born and raised in rural Ayreshire in Scotland it is not strange that he graduated from the West of Scotland Agricultural College with the Scottish Diploma in Horticulture. Mr. McQuiston has been an elder in the Church of Scotland and organist and choir master in Presbyterian, Anglican and Lutheran Churches in Scotland, England and Canada. He now attends the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad in Saskatoon. He and his wife also have two children. They will be working in either the Diocese of Cariboo in British Columbia or the Diocese of Brandon in Manitoba.
Joan Evelyn Ellman, the only woman recipient of this year's scholarships is also studying at the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad and is the other "overseas" native. She was born in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to Canada as a teenager. She has a B.Sc. degree from the University of Toronto and is now in her final year of theological studies at Emmanuel and St. Chad.
Ms. Ellman has committed herself to work in the Diocese of the Yukon which is centred in Yellowknife [sic, i.e. Whitehorse].
James Gordon McCurry is a native of Neepawa, Manitoba and is also now in his final year at the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad. He has been supporting his wife and three children by working during vacation periods as a Greyhound Bus driver!
Previously, Mr. McCurry assisted in the work of Intermountain Christian Guest Homes, supervising St. Luke's House in Grandview, Manitoba. He intends to work in the Diocese of Brandon in northern Manitoba after ordination.
Brock William Lupton, now studying at the Vancouver School of Theology has a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of British Columbia. In addition to his obvious involvement as an organist and choirmaster in several churches, Mr. Lupton has worked as a theological student assistant in parishes in Arvida, Quebec, Cassiar, B.C. and in Vancouver.
A native of Kelowna, B.C., he is married to a registered nurse and they are looking forward eagerly to their work in the Northwest Territories [sic, i.e.Yukon Territory] in the Diocese of the Yukon.

MEMO TO: All recipients of the press release re Anglican Scholarship Awards
FROM: R.J. Berryman, Media Officer
The following is part of a letter sent to the Bishops of the Dioceses of the Yukon and the Arctic concerning a press release on the awarding of the Archbishop Owen Scholarships for 1980.
The press release named Yellowknife as the headquarters of the Diocese of the Yukon and stated that some work in that Diocese took place in the North West Territories:
"What do you say after you say, 'I'm sorry'?"
"I have NO explanation other than we goofed! I know the See City of the Diocese of the Yukon is Whitehorse. I know Yukon and North West are separate Territories."
"I would plead a mental lapse on my part in the midst of a very busy week, but even that does not explain how it got past my secretary who also knows the correct facts. Even when Archdeacon Hilchey, the General Secretary read over the release, he didn't notice my errors. I'm not trying to spread the blame, I'm just saying that it appears one of those gremlins really got us this time."
"At any rate, all I can do is apologize sincerely, and humbly admit I made two horrendous errors. I rejoice only in the fact that you caught them and brought them to my immediate attention. I have sent a quick correction out to all who received the release."
"Mea Culpa - please forgive. Very best personal regards."
Regards,
[Signed]

Resolved, That, the Upper House concurring, this General Synod of the Church of England in Canada do express to the Rt. Rev. W.C. White, D.D., Bishop in Honan, China, its most sincere appreciation of his illuminating, statesmanlike and inspiring sermon preached at the opening of its Eleventh Session.
His vivid presentation of the serious outlook in the Eastern World with its causes, and ominous features; his portrayal of the opportunities of the Church created by the present situation in the East, and his clarion call to the Church to return to apostolic precedent and principle in the prosecution of the missionary enterprise were an inspiration to the whole Synod and a strong incentive to a more aggressive missionary policy.

That, whereas the Executive Council and Board of Management of M.S.C.C. in Joint Session at Ottawa in 1961 has taken the following action:
"Without jeopardizing the present overseas commitments of The Anglican Church of Canada in the following Provinces and Dioceses of the Anglican Communion:
The Church of India, Pakistan, Burma and Ceylon
The Holy Catholic Church in Japan
The Archbishopric in Jerusalem
The Church of Uganda Ruanda [sic i.e. Rwanda] Urundi
The Church of the Province of the West Indies
The Diocese of Hong Kong
The Diocese of Accra
The Diocese of Malaya and Singapore, and
The Diocese of Madras in the Church of South India.
It is recommended that the Executive Committee of the Department of Missions of The Anglican Church of Canada be empowered to receive and consider, within the limitations of its Annual Budget appropriations, such appeals for personnel and funds for work in the Anglican Communion as are directed to the Department of Missions of The Anglican Church of Canada by the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy of the Anglican Communion."
It is therefore recommended that as funds become available in the next triennium, the Department of Missions give priority in its overseas commitments to accepting increased appeals from the Church of India, Pakistan, Burma and Ceylon; The Church of Uganda Ruanda Urandi, and the Church of the Province of the West Indies for the following purposes:
(i) To provide assistance in the training and support of national clergy and lay workers.
(ii) To recruit and train overseas personnel in response to requests from overseas Diocesan Bishops.
(iii) To provide financial assistance for capital needs in the areas of church extension and theological education. CARRIED in both Houses.

"I was approached by the Program Committee of the Anglican Church of Canada to undertake this assignment shortly after the Canadian Conference on Church and Society, held in Montreal in May, 1968. The theme of the Conference was 'Christian Conscience and Poverty' and during the Conference I talked with Indians, Metis and Eskimos. I became acutely aware that the native people of Canada are in serious trouble. .... This present action-oriented analysis is based on the assumption that the Anglican Church of Canada can make a substantial, strategic and significant contribution in relation to the needs, human resources and potential development of the native peoples of Canada. .... In this Report we look briefly at Canada's native people and some of the forces that have shaped them: we list some of the things the churches and the nation have done and some of the things they have failed to do; and we offer recommendations for action." -- Intro.

Second revised edition. Originally published 1969.
"[By] Charles E. Hendry with with an introduction by the Rt. Rev. Gordon Beardy and an appendix on the work of the Anglican Church of Canada and government initiatives since the original release of `Beyond Traplines'."
Bibliography: pp. 111-112.
Includes statistics on native congregations and native clergy in new (1998) Appendix D page 101.
"The Hendry Report helped Native people take a big step toward self-determination. The report examined Canadian reality for the public in a way that had never been done before by any organization. The church was critical of itself and Canadian society and made recommendations that would address much of the pain and ignorance that had existed in our church community for so many years. 'Beyond Traplines' was a life-changing document for the Anglican church, with many powerful observations. It is, however, a document rooted in its own particular period of history and, because of that, there are some mistaken beliefs expressed and some landmark changes in Canada's history since 1969 that are, of course, not mentioned. The text of this report has been left the way it was written almost thirty years ago. There are inaccuracies in the text and the history has changed some of the reality that is being expressed within the descriptions of society, but the report still remains very powerful. Included at the end of this new release of 'Beyond Traplines' are appendices that reflect on the information contained within the report and work to bring people up to date on initiatives undertaken since 1969 in Aboriginal society, by the church and government. The Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples, released 21 November 1996, continued this journey for Canada's Aboriginal peoples towards self-determination, but it also marked the possibility of something greater, that of healing and reconciliation for all of this nation's people. We, in the Anglican Church of Canada, celebrate this journey by educating the Canadian public about the Royal Commission, but also be continuing to use and develop our own uniquely Anglican resources". -- [1998] Foreword.
