Notes
"The Rt. Rev. Morse Robinson, known to many as a 'servant bishop' and strong advocate of mission and ministry, died on Dec. 7 [2012] after a brief illness. He was 92. Robinson was a 'creative visionary who served generously' according to Marilyn Malton, director of the Renison Institute of Ministry in Waterloo, Ont. Robinson founded the Renison Institute in 1987 in response to the need for skilled lay ministries, and served as its director until 2001. Robinson's priority was strengthening and equipping parish ministry teams through mentoring and 'pastoral and practical' courses/workshops. His mantra: 'Shepherds don't make sheep, sheep do'. At Robinson's request, a memorial service will take place at St. Mark's Church, Niagara-on-the-Lake, on May 25, 2013, at 2 p.m." [Text of entire article.]

Notes
"For all its benefits, university can be an unsettling experience for young adults" (p. 8). "Enter university chaplaincy services, multifaith islands of calm dedicated to the spiritual care and development of students. Often poorly funded and unable to offer secure contracts, academic chaplaincies attract a unique type of mentors who provide one-on-one pastoral care not offered by a college's secular counsellors and health-care professionals". The Rev. Megan Collings-Moore has been the Anglican chaplain at Renison University College, an Anglican affiliate of Ontario's Waterloo University, for eight years. "Today, most chaplains will tell you that dealing with student mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder is an increasing part of their role .... 'Last year, I did a lot of triage for suicidal ideation', says Collings-Moore" (p. 8). The Rev. Richard Reimer, a Lutheran chaplain at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, "echoes her point that student mental health is a growing issue" (p. 8). The Rev. Emily Carr was a former ecumenical chaplain at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon but had to leave the financially insecure position for established Anglican parish ministry. "In her two years, Carr married students and presided at student funerals. 'Chaplains are called when there's a death on campus or a rape, and we can help by participating in conversations about these', she says. At Dalhousie University in Halifax, Clement Mehlman has been an unordained Lutheran chaplain for 16 years. Mehlman, who taught English for 31 years before training for the chaplaincy, feels certain students may feel more comfortable with an unordained adviser" (p. 9). "Ultimately, chaplains cannot take away the stress of campus life. But they can walk with students and help them navigate it -- and be there as they wrestle with the big questions of where they want to go in life. And as student mental health issues overwhelm secular counselling services, the healing guidance of chaplains is more essential than ever" (p. 9).

"[By] Jack Percy Peck".
Includes bibliographic endnotes.
The words that follow are offered as an encouragement to all who feel called to express their Christian faith in terms of ministry. Ministry should be life-affirming because it is sustained by an inner spiritual dynamic that is procreative in the lives of those who are ministering in Christ's name. Ministry grows out of awareness of our being connected to God in and through Christ. If the joy of this connection is broken, it may be a sign that our lives are out of control, our expectations are destroying us, and our spiritual centre if numb. There is a lack of care for the carers. My hope in this book is to help us remain centred in God who calls forth ministry in response to his love". -- Intro.

Notes
"Thus Bulletin and another, No. 108, which will accompany it, deal with two matters, first the Church's relation to Social Agency work and, second, Social Insurances. These are closely allied. The problems of individual, family and social life which arise out of material as well as moral conditions are reflected in what the social worker and the pastor see day to day. These problem cases are met, to some degree at least, by the benefits of one or other of the Social Insurances.
In this Bulletin we deal with the relations of parish clergy and welfare workers, whose common responsibilities and efforts are complicated and highly intensified under war conditions. After a general article on the relation of pastors and welfare workers we are presenting excerpts from various sources which indicate these problems in different parts of Canada. No pastor today can be unaware of these conditions. His work is multiplied by reason of them. Nevertheless in order to sharpen up the attention of pastors and people alike we present these statements.
The need for a supreme pastoral effort by priest and people was never greater. The general welfare of our people depends upon the ministrations rendered to them in spiritual, moral and material affairs. Moreover the `morale' of the people necessary for winning the war, if for nothing else, will be maintained the better by such ministrations". -- Editor's Foreword.

The Primate reflects on the beginning of the new year, 10 years since the beginning of the new millennium, and 15 years (on 18 January) since his consecration as a bishop. "At my consecration, I remember Archbishop Michael Peers pointing out that in episcopal ministry one experiences a shift from a depth of pastoral relationships within a parish family to a breadth of pastoral relationship within a diocesan family and in the wider circles of the Church." "And now two and a half years into the ministry of primacy, I appreciate Michael's point even more. For now I travel from coast to coast to coast and throughout the world representing our beloved Church. ... I've learned that an important part of this ministry is sharing stories of faithful witness across the country". Primate lists thirteen short observations and concludes "In so much that I see and hear I am moved to say with St. Paul, 'I thank my God in all my remembrance of you .. thankful for our partnership in the gospel from the first day until now' (Philippians 1:3-5)".

The primate reflects on his recent visit to the "Tuesday Drop-in" ministry at St. James Cathedral in Toronto, Ont. "The space was set up with stations to meet a variety of needs. At the entrance, hot drinks, sandwiches and fresh fruit were on offer. Farther down the aisle, two barbers were ready to cut hair. Beyond that was a station where a couple of nurses could provide foot care. Across the aisle was a table laden with hand-knit socks, hats, mittens and scarves." "Throughout the entire place, there was a beautiful spirit of welcome and warmth, service and gratitude, faith and friendship". "All I heard and saw that afternoon moved me to think of how much joy such ministry brings to the heart of our blessed Lord. It reminded me of the teaching of the great St. John Chrysostom with respect to reverencing the Body of Christ. 'In the first sense, the Body of Christ does not need clothing but worship from a pure heart. In the second sense, it does need clothing and all the care we can give it'."

"It is obvious within our Canadian economy that with a steadily growing core of unemployed in this country every parish is likely to have a number of people in greater or less degrees of debt. The diligent parish priest will undoubtedly be involved with problems of many of his parishioners and may find help in the material in this Bulletin. .... The Council for Social Service is greatly indebted to the Reverend C.R. Elliott, rector of Christ Church, Lantz, Nova Scotia, for the co-ordinating and assembling of findings of a special committee of the Council for Social Service which has been at work during the past year on this topic." -- Intro.

Notes
The author celebrated the 35th anniversary of his ordination to the diaconate on 20 May 2014. "Some 35 years later, having shared ministry in five parishes and now in a sixth, and having contributed to 10 years at the national office of the Anglican Church of Canada, I find myself feeling encouraged -- and sometimes discouraged -- about the church. The discouragement centres on structures and processes that bind rather than liberate, on self-centeredness, lack of honesty and the misappropriate use of power". "And yet the church remains the people of God. For they, the people, have given me some very unique privileges over the past three and a half decades -- from baptizing and sharing the eucharist to participating in weddings and funerals, to sharing in ministry in every diocese in this country and, on a few occasions in different settings and countries around the world. More than ever, I feel people have blessed my ministry". "I thank God that over the years, these people and many others have touched my life and showed me what the gospel of love really means".

"[By] George B. Snell, Bishop of Toronto".
Colophon: "Elmvale Lance Press". -- back cover.
"I have written this document in the hope that three things would be accomplished by its distribution. In the first place I have wished for some time to give a positive approach to our Christian position in the present situation. Secondly, it is my hope that the suggestions I have made in its pages will provide the basis for discussion purposes in parish groups, advisory boards, deanery, clericus and similar meetings. Thirdly, that a number of the ideas should be considered by various diocesan boards and committees, especially the Diocesan Planning Committee." -- Preface.
"During the past few years we have been examining the Church in an effort to evaluate our methods and structures. The purpose behind this examination is to enable us to adapt our presentation of the Gospel to meet the present situation. Some of the suggestions have been more a counsel of despair than a helpful and constructive approach to our problems. For example, some people have told us that we are living in a post-Christian era where the Gospel is no longer relevant, while others say there may be a place for religion but the 'institutional' Church is an anachronism that will soon disappear. .... It is time we in the Diocese of Toronto stopped wringing our hands in despair and undertook a serious programme of reformation and advance. We must stop any tendency to drift and make plans now that we will implement in the immediate future. This is what I am asking you to undertake with me as we enter the 70's". -- p. 5.
