Notes
"The Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) concluded its 12-day New Zealand meeting optimistic about the future of the Anglican Communion. It also renewed its commitment to addressing gender-based violence, the environmental crisis and social justice issues. Outgoing Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams noted that the work actually questions 'what kind of humanity we're seeking to promote and serve, which is a deeply Christian question'. Suzanne Lawson, Anglican Church of Canada lay delegate, said the meeting proved that 'the Anglican Communion actually works. It's alive and well, it's exciting, it's mission-focused'. The ACC met October 27 to November 7 [2012] in Auckland". The ACC: Passed a resolution of support for the continuing indaba process, describing it as 'honest conversation that works to build community .. and provide a context in which conflict can be resolved'. Urged Anglicans to 'show moral courage' in addressing the cause and impact of environmental change. Heard from the Bible in the Life of the Church Project, that in spite of their diversity, Anglicans everywhere share a 'high common ground' over the place of the Bible in their lives. Adjusted the wording of the fourth Mark of Mission to read: 'To seek to transform the unjust structures of society to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation'. The Canadian Church recommended 'to pursue peace, conflict transformation and reconciliation' as a sixth Mark of Mission in 2007. Passed a resolution calling on the Communion to implement a charter to make churches safer".

Notes
"The Archbishop of Canterbury is fighting to hold the Church of England together. At the General Synod in York, he won a battle, but the row goes on". The author considers the facts of the appointment of Canon Jeffrey John, and his subsequent resignation, as Suffragan Bishop of Reading. He refers to the larger question of homosexuality within the Communion, mentioning the blessing of same sex unions in the diocese of New Westminster and the election of Canon Gene Robinson in New Hampshire. "In all this, the question of why is is homosexuality that should rack the Church is intriguing. It is the issue on which the evangelicals have rallied to their standard in a way they did not on any of the previously abandoned heights of orthodoxy, from slavery to borrowing money at interest to divorce. The answer seems to be that the issue is an easily explicable one to their followers, who are convinced of the scriptural and theological objections to homosexuality, and one which can therefore by guaranteed to secure a majority on one side of the argument. It is, in other words, an atavistic political tool". "The tactics in the row are interesting too. They are ones of threat: alternative oversight, withholding funding, schism. Some the Church of England has brought upon itself: alternative episcopal oversight was introduced a decade back to help reconcile churches which could not accept women's ordination without, perhaps, recognising that the principal of episcopal authority had thereby been comprehensively breached". "This is a Church where unity is currently prized more than integrity. Can it hold together a worldwide Communion -- more a confederation -- of 70 million people, some of whom believe that polygamy is acceptable but homosexuality is beyond the pale, and some of whom believe the reverse ? Should it even try to do so ?" "This is not a happy Church. And Catholic observers should not feel smug. It is a debate that is coming to the Catholic Church too".

Notes
"At a time -- at least in Canada -- when having an active faith is considered a liability for politicians, Elizabeth May stands out for being openly Anglican. May, leader of the Green Party of Canada, is known for environmental activism as equally as she is for declaring her faith". "May says that her faith is such an important part of her life that she remains unfazed. 'It's the source of my strength in dealing with somewhat insurmountable odds -- this profound belief that the impossible is possible'." "'I'm very comfortable in the Anglican church. The element of it that I appreciate the most would apply to many Protestant churches -- inclusiveness, tolerance', she says. May also finds joy in parish life, so much so that before she entered politics, she studied to become a priest. She was halfway through her theological studies at Saint Paul University in Ottawa, but had to abandon the idea as the demands of an emerging party grew. In 2011, May made history by becoming the first Green party candidate to be elected to the House of Commons. Now a parishioner at St. Andrew's in Sidney, B.C., May is still on the parish rolls of St. George's in New Glasgow, N.S., her former home". "May recalls hearing then-Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams speak forcefully a the 2009 UN conference on climate change in Copenhagen. 'He said, "to tell lies about climate change is to tell lies about God and it's blasphemy",' says May. 'I just got chills and thought, 'Oh my God, I belong to the Anglican church and we've got this radical Archbishop of Canterbury, and isn't he wonderful ?'"

"Highlighting the gravity of the situation of Roma people of Europe, Hindus have strongly urged the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan D. Williams, to immediately come up with a white paper on their plight. Rajan Zed, acclaimed Hindu and Indo-American leader, says that Roma people (also known as Gypsies) are facing blatant injustice and discrimination right under Archbishop Williams' nose in Europe. Mr. Zed said that, being one of the top religious leaders in the world, it was a moral obligation of the Archbishop to come out in support of this largest minority of people within Europe and work to stop human rights violations suffered by Roma, who numbered around 10 million and were the most disadvantaged".
