Notes
"The Canadian house of bishops will discuss this month [October 2008] how best to respond to renewed proposals for moratoria on the blessing of same-sex unions, the ordination of persons living in same-sex unions to the episcopate, and cross-border interventions" (p. 1). "[T]hree primates -- Archbishop Hiltz, Archbishop de Andrade, and Bishop Jefferts Schori -- have repeatedly asked Archbishop Venables to stop meddling in the internal affairs of their provinces. Archbishop Venables has, of his own accord, been providing episcopal oversight to churches that are in serious theological dispute with their respective provinces over the issue of sexuality. Archbishop [Rowan] Williams has said he will do his best to facilitate the request [for a meeting of the concerned primates]" (p. 1). "Archbishop Hiltz said that the call for moratoria would also be 'a huge pastoral challenge' for bishops of four diocese that have pending requests for their synods for the approval of same-sex blessings 'given the kind of strong majority votes those synods' had" (p. 6). "Already, conservative primates who boycotted the conference and formed a council for the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) have announced plans for church plantings and the possibility of creating a new province in North America" (p. 6). "Asked about GAFCON's plan to set up a North American province, [Archbishop Hiltz] said 'the province has to be in communion with the See of Canterbury and it's the Anglican Consultative Council that determines (whether a province can be set up), not a group of primates and bishops, not even the Archbishop of Canterbury'" (p. 6).

Notes
"Four more Canadian congregations have voted to leave the Anglican Church of Canada and to be under the episcopal oversight of Bishop Donald Harvey, moderator of the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC), and under the primatial authority of Archbishop Gregory Venables, primate of the Anglican Province of the Southern Cone. The departures of the congregations of St. Aidan's in Windsor, Ont., St. George's Ottawa, Church of St. Peter, Hamilton, Ont., and St. Bede's, Kinesota, Man., brings to 14 the number of parishes that have left the Anglican Church of Canada amid clashing views on the blessing of same-sex unions".

Notes
"Is orthodoxy simply a matter of saying the same thing that we said before ? That was not the case for the bishops at Nicaea. The Nicene Creed uses a new (non-Biblical !) word to speak of the relation between the Father and the Son, because the Bible is not an adequate resource to solve the problem. It does not quite say what the church wants to say. Doctrine develops. Always has. Always will. On this, the 'St. Michael's Report' is correct. The Christian faith is not 'unchanging', as Archbishop Gregory Venables would have it. The church must make judgments about the Scriptures, in spite of Essentials' protestations to the contrary (see the 'Montreal Declaration' of Essentials). The mind of the church matters and it develops, as circumstances change and our understanding deepens. Our task is to be faithful to the Holy Spirit's leading, rather than assuming that what our parents have said is, by definition, the final word". [Text of entire article.]

Text
November 29, 2007
The following pastoral statement is released to the Church by the Primate and the Metropolitan Archbishops of each of the four ecclesiastical provinces.
Greetings in the name of the One who was, who is, and who is to come -- our Lord Jesus Christ
The Mission Statement of the Anglican Church of Canada opens with these statements: “As a partner in the worldwide Anglican Communion and in the universal Church, we proclaim and celebrate the gospel of Jesus Christ in worship and in action. We value our heritage of Biblical faith, reason, liturgy, tradition, bishops and synods and the rich variety of our life in community.”
It is fundamental to the values and mission of our Church that we welcome and respect freedom of individual conscience and the theological convictions of a diverse membership. Our General Synods have consistently strived to honour every voice as the Church works through contentious and difficult issues before it. This is particularly true in the way the Church has endeavoured to address matters of human sexuality including the blessing of same-sex unions.
The report of the Primate's Theological Commission commonly known as the St. Michael Report has described this issue as matter of doctrine but not core doctrine. General Synod concurred with this opinion last June. The St. Michael Report also declared that the matter need not be a Communion-breaking issue.
It is in this context that we deplore recent actions on the part of the Primate and General Synod of the Province of the Southern Cone to extend its jurisdiction into Canada through the Essentials Network Conference. This action breaks fellowship within the Anglican Church of Canada and the Anglican Communion
We affirm the statement unanimously agreed to by the Council of General Synod which appeals to the Archbishop of Canterbury “to make clear that such actions are not a valid expression of Anglicanism.” We too appeal to him in his capacity as one of the instruments of communion and as chair of the Primates' Meeting to address the very serious issues raised by this intervention
The actions by the Primate of the Southern Cone are not necessary. Our bishops have made adequate and appropriate provision for the pastoral care and episcopal support of all members of the Anglican Church of Canada, including those who find themselves in conscientious disagreement with the view of their bishop and synod over the blessing of same-sex unions. These provisions, contained in the document known as Shared Episcopal Ministry, were adopted by the House of Bishops and commended by the panel of reference appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The actions by the Primate of the Southern Cone are also inappropriate. They contravene ancient canons of the Church going as far back as the 4th century, as well as statements of the Lambeth Conference, the Windsor report and the Communiqué from the Primates' Meeting earlier this year. Furthermore these actions violate Canon XVII of the Anglican Church of Canada which states that “No Bishop priest or deacon shall exercise ordained ministry in a diocese without the license or temporary permission of the Diocesan Bishop.”
Any ministry exercised in Canada by those received into the Province of the Southern Cone after voluntarily relinquishing the exercise of their ministry in the Anglican Church of Canada is inappropriate, unwelcome and invalid. We are aware that some bishops have, or will be making statements to that effect in their own dioceses.
In the meantime we rejoice in this season of Advent in which we once again begin that great journey of tracing the steps of our Lord's most holy life through the liturgy of a new year.
We rejoice in the gift of word and sacrament. We rejoice in the gift of our baptism and in the great gift of the Eucharist. We rejoice in the gift of the Holy Spirit who leads us into all truth and empowers us to proclaim the gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ in word and action.
We respect the diversity of opinion in our Church over many issues. We respect the manner in which we take counsel together and honour the intention of all those who even in the midst of struggle desire to remain within the fellowship of the Anglican Church of Canada.
Let us renew our trust in the One who holds us together in the embrace of His love and peace.
We call all Anglicans to a renewed emphasis on mission and prayer for faithful witness in the service of the gospel within our parishes and across the world.
In him whose Advent sets us free.
The Most Rev. Fred Hiltz, Archbishop and Primate
The Most Rev. Terry Buckle, Archbishop and Metropolitan of British Columbia and Yukon
The Most Rev. John Clarke, Archbishop and Metropolitan of Rupert's Land
The Most Rev. Caleb Lawrence, Archbishop and Metropolitan of Ontario
The Most Rev. Bruce Stavert, Archbishop and Metropolitan of Canada
