"The Anglican Church of Canada has embarked on an ambitious project to create its next long-term strategic plan, Vision 2019. The church is asking for input from all Anglicans in Canada on a two-part question: 'Where is your church now, and where do you think it should be in 2019 ?'" "Lisa Barry, senior producer at Anglican Video, is head of a staff group in charge of the project at the General Synod offices in Toronto." "The focus is on the five marks of mission. A study guide to stimulate discussions can de downloaded from the Vision 2019 page of www.anglican.ca." "Submissions will be accepted until Oct. 1 [2009]. Videos should be kept to a 10-minute length and voicemail messages to five minutes".

"Anglicans across Canada will be invited to 'help shape the mission priorities' for 2010 to 2019 of General Synod, the governing body of the Anglican Church of Canada, by participating in a voluntary, congregation-based lenten study next year. The study will allow participants to share their vision for their church's work". Dean Peter Elliott, chair of the 2019 Visioning and Planning Task Group, said that the lenten study "can lead us to many exciting possibilities. There's a great future for our church. We can sometimes get discouraged and depressed, but there's a fresh wind blowing in the life of the Anglican Church of Canada to engage us again in this important reflection on God's mission and what it is we're called to be and do".

Resolution 16-11-1
Prologue
Moved by: Bishop Dennis Drainville
Seconded by: Archbishop Colin Johnson
That this Council of General Synod set aside two full days to study, discuss and set the specific prioritized mission goals for the next five years and that the Council establish a plan for the efficient utilization of financial and staff resources in the achieving of those specific goals and to ask the house of bishops to do likewise.
Discussion
Council discussed various aspects of the motion, including whether or not the intended focus of the resolution was on structure or budget; the level of staff involvement appropriate in discussions on priority setting; and the addition of days to Council meetings.
Amendment
Moved by: The Rev. Jonathan Sinnatamby
Seconded by: Ms. Cynthia Haines-Turner
That the words “two days” be changed to “significant time.”
Discussion continued. Council was asked to indicate if it wished further discussion on the amendment. It did not.
The amendment was voted on and DEFEATED
The Primate refocused the discussion. He noted that discussions on current structures were already ongoing in a number of areas in the church. He also reminded Council that the church had worked through a lengthy process in the last triennium to arrive at Vision 2019 and the seven priorities for the church set out in it. He noted that in order to have the financial resources to advance the Vision 2019 priorities, attention must be paid to its practices. Otherwise, the church's capacity to move forward will be hindered.
The Primate proposed an amendment:
Text
That this Council of General Synod set aside two full days to consider clear directions and a plan for the efficient utilization of financial, staff and structural resources in the achieving of the priorities and practices set out in Vision 2019.
Council adopted the amendment and the amended motion was put and was ADOPTED #16-11-1

"Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, used his address to the Council of General Synod (CoGS) to focus attention on where the church is at in relation to the priorities and goals outlined in Vision 2019". Among other, Hiltz noted that diocesan schools for ministry 'are popping up all over our church', noting that the House of Bishops is keen to discuss the 'standards that are drawing and holding all the schools together'. Looking at the church's efforts to walk with indigenous people, Hiltz noted the strong Anglican presence at all the national events for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Since 1992, he said, there have been 555 projects and $5.9 million for gifts intended for healing and reconciliation. He highlighted Bishop Lydia Mamakwa's consecration, the creation of Mishamikoweesh as the first indigenous diocese and other steps toward self-determination for indigenous Anglicans. But he said other issues remain, including non-stipendiary ministry in native communities".

Notes
"Certainly the Vision 2019 committee is to be applauded for the tremendous job it did sorting through all the input and information and presenting the research in a thoughtful and highly polished way. But even with the best of intentions, Vision 2019 falls short of providing a prophetic vision for the church.. In spite of the rhetoric, all the time and energy invested, we have failed to dream outside the box. Where are the new ways of doing church ? What are they and and how will we embrace them ? We have given lip service to notions of becoming missional with no clear direction for how to do so". "The good news in all this is that there are pockets of innovation where we can find committed Anglicans living out their faith in new ways. We need to connect with them and learn from them. Organizations such as Fresh Expressions Canada are already working on the frontlines of the evolving church in Canada. Why are we not looking more closely at adopting and adapting the concept of Fresh Expressions for broader application ? If it's good enough for Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, it must have something going for it". "The diocese of Toronto is open to innovation and quick to adopt and adapt. .... Now the diocese has ramped up communications to actively engage the culture."

Prologue
Dr. Lela Zimmer and the Rev. Lynne McNaughton sought COGS understanding of the intention of General Synod Motion A142 R1. In table groups, members discussed two questions: “Based on this motion, how do you understand the task given by COGS to the Faith, Worship and Ministry Committee?” and “What are the key issues you would like FWM to focus on in response to this motion during this triennium?”
Following discussion it was clarified that the Faith, Worship and Ministry Committee would produce a study of the canonical, theological, liturgical implications as well as the potential effects on the mission and witness of the Anglican Church of Canada, of the cessation of the solemnization of matrimony by the clergy of the Anglican Church of Canada and report back to General Synod 2013.
That the Council of General Synod direct Faith, Worship and Ministry to strike a working group to develop a supplemental hymn book to Common Praise to be presented to General Synod in 2013, and to direct FMC to allocate to FWM for the hymnal supplement working group the sum of $6,000 for the fiscal year 2012 and $4,000 for fiscal year 2013. FWM has identified this project as a priority emerging out of the Principles for Liturgical Revision and in response to the call of Vision 2019 for the renewal and enlivening of our worship and as a means of fulfilling the first and second Marks of Mission.
The Chancellor advised that the motion as it stood was out of order.
The mover and seconder withdrew the motion and moved the following motion:
Text
That the Council of General Synod recognizes the desirability of Faith, Worship and Ministry developing a supplemental hymn book to Common Praise, as work emerging out of the Principles for Liturgical Revision and in response to the call of Vision 2019 for the renewal and enlivening of our worship and as a means of fulfilling the first and second Marks of Mission.
ADOPTED BY CONSENSUS #25-03-11
Notes
The motion in the Report of the Faith, Worship and Ministry Committee, Doc. #006-02-11-03 which read “That the Council of General Synod direct FMC to allocate to FWM for the Liturgy Task Force the sum of $30,000 for the fiscal year 2012 and $30,000 for fiscal year 2013.” was withdrawn because allocation of money is done as part of the budgeting process.
Council indicated that it would be helpful to have the Financial Management Committee develop an outline of the budgeting process for the church.

"I am astounded to learn that at General Synod [June 2010], 'respectful listening [has put] same-sex talks back on track' and that we have reached 'a watershed moment' in this intractable problem. Many of these articles are on process rather than on contents. I looked in vain for what the Anglican Covenant is about, nor could I get an idea of what the strategic plan, Vision 2019, tries to accomplish".

Writing re the story CoGS back Vision 2019 (April 2010, p, 3) the writer says: "One concern: recent actions in several liberal Canadian dioceses will hurt us as leaders in the Anglican Communion and in ecumenical actions. This report totally ignores the harm our actions have caused and the result they have of blocking achievement of this aspect of our vision. We are violating General Synod 2007, the Anglican Communion and our ecumenical partners !"

"Issues of leadership and ministry dominated discussions at the House of Bishops this fall [November 2009]. Topics ranged from declining revenues and membership, to new and creative ways of doing church". "Like the Anglican Church of Canada, whichhas embarked on Vision 2019m a project to create its long-term strategic plan, the ELCIC [Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada] is also 'in a process of structural renewal', said ELCIC National Bishop Susan Johnson, adding that since 1986, the ELCIC has lost 23 per cent of its members". "Archbishop Fred Hiltz , primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, noted the church has four new metropolitans, and many new bishops, 'It's a real opportunity to reshape our work', he said".
