TORONTO, Nov. 5, 2004
Canadian Anglican bishops meeting this week in Saskatoon, Sask., have unanimously declared the Windsor Report of the Lambeth Commission on unity in the Anglican Communion to be an important document worthy of study by the whole church.
Without dissent, the bishops approved a motion that calls on Canadian Anglicans to respond to the report in time for a meeting of the Primates of the Communion that will be held in Belfast next February [2005].
The bishops also voted unanimously to ask the Canadian Primate, Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, to write a pastoral letter to the Canadian Church asking Anglicans to consider the report and send their responses to him.
The Lambeth Commission was created by Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams more than a year ago to consider how the world-wide Anglican Communion can preserve its unity in the face of controversies around issues such as the ordination of a gay bishop in the United States and the blessing of same-sex unions in a Canadian diocese.
The commission under the chairmanship of Archbishop Robin Eames of Armagh, submitted its report last month. The commission conducted an exhaustive study of Anglican unity and the stresses it faces and made several recommendations including issuing a call for "expressions of regret" on the part of some bishops and churches whose actions have distressed others in the communion. Bishops who have intervened in the affairs of dioceses other than their own are also asked to express regret and refrain from such interventions in the future.
The report also includes a model "covenant" to more closely bind provinces of the Anglican Communion.
Anglican Primates from around the world are to bring their churches' responses to the Belfast meeting, and the Canadian Church has set up a process to gather those responses.
On another matter, the bishops also approved a document entitled "Shared Episcopal Oversight" which provides a model through which parishes and congregations that dissent from a decision on the blessing of same-sex unions made by their dioceses can be placed, temporarily, under the care of a bishop from outside the diocese.
The model described in "Shared Episcopal Oversight" also provides for a process of reconciliation where agreement between certain parishes or congregations and the diocese's bishop cannot be reached. In both cases, the diocesan bishop is involved in the process.
The document says that "shared Episcopal ministry" is based on a spirit of reconciliation, cooperation and good will.
The meeting of Anglican bishops is held twice a year and brings together bishops from each of the Canadian Anglican church's 30 dioceses from across the country.

Notes
"The following is the first of two lectures Archbishop Eames delivered last summer [2005] at the Virginia Theological Seminary's convocation. It is published here with permission".
"It is debatable if the Anglican Communion has faced a more searching period, more public scrutiny and more transparent heart-searching than in the past two years". "Has the Anglican obsession with sexuality been merely the tip of an iceberg hiding other deeper issues, which will ultimately dictate the future of the Anglican Communion ?" "With few exceptions the Anglican north and west began to recognize the extent of internal diversity which had existed long before the name of Gene Robinson became known internationally". Archbishop Eames goes on to discuss what are commonly known as "the bonds of affection" and the pressures on them including the legacy of colonialism; the development of autonomous provinces and the fact of inculturation in different societies; the Anglican avoidance of a central authority akin to the central curia of Rome; and tensions not just between provinces but also within provinces, dioceses and even parishes. "Such questioning brings me to another and perhaps more controversial issue. Is the real question about authority rather than sexuality ? Not just authority in terms of the authority of interpretation of Holy Scripture, but authority to be in communion among diverse and autonomous Provinces ...". The author's involvement in the Lambeth Commission demonstrated evidence that "cultural development across our Communion had become an equal if not a dominant ingredient within the bonds of affection. In saying that I need to be aware that conservative Anglicanism resents any argument that places cultural difference above questions of theological principle. .... Am I alone in thinking that at the root of those clashes [between conservative a liberal argument], irrespective of our personal allegiances or preferences, lies the failure of succeeding generations of Anglicans to accept that there are parameters to divergence in scriptural interpretation, there are boundaries to ecclesiological autonomy and there are limitations to what a world family of vague technical relationships can endure and still remain a cohesive entity." He considers the possible dilemmas "associated with what could be called `the practical working of communion'" and especially the potential effects on Anglican organizations that span provinces e.g. the Missionary Societies and the Mothers Union. "The impressions of the Anglican Communion I gained in the preparation of the Windsor Report are dominated by one word -- pain". He offers, from his personal experience, one possible solution for the Commission -- the concept of reconciliation, which he defines and outlines as a process. "Is it just possible that future generations will look at this [current] time not just as a negative era for Anglicanism but rather as an inevitable sign of growth, a sign of maturity even in the history of a most diverse world Christian family ?" "I have tried to point out some of the consequences of an international Church body in which aspiration to bonds is more visible than application to their realities. As far back as 1920 the Lambeth Conference concluded: `The Churches represented in (the Communion) are indeed independent, but independent with the Christian freedom which recognises the restraints of truth and love. They are not free to deny the truth. They are not free to ignore the fellowship'. The Windsor Report took this question and commented: `This means that any development needs to be explored for its resonance with the truth, and with the utmost charity on the part of all -- charity that grants that a new thing can be offered humbly and with integrity, and charity that might refrain from an action which might harm a sister or brother'."

TORONTO, May 2, 2005 -- The Anglican Church of Canada's governing council, meeting in Mississauga, Ont. later this week, is set to decide on a request that the Canadian church voluntarily absent itself from a key Communion meeting.
The Council of General Synod (CoGS) will also address another request that the church impose a moratorium on the blessing of same-sex unions at its meeting at the Queen of Apostles Renewal Centre, Mississauga, Ont., May 6-8 [2005].
(CoGS is the chief governing boy of the Anglican Church of Canada. It is the body that oversees the implementation of General Synod decisions and any matters referred to it by the Primate. It meets twice a year between sessions of the General Synod.)
Members of CoGS will be responding to the Anglican Primates' Communique, which the heads of provincial churches issued after their meeting in Dromantine, Northern Ireland, in February [2005].
(Last month, the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church in the United States agreed on behalf of the U.S. church to honour the request.)
The Anglican Consultative Council is made up of bishops, priests and lay people from each of the worldwide Anglican Communion's 39 provinces and is considered an `instrument of unity'.
The other major issue before CoGS is a proposal for a moratorium on blessings of same-sex unions made by a special commission that examined how the communion can stay together in light of growing controversies around sexual issues. In its report -- The Windsor Report -- the international commission requested such a moratorium.
Archdeacon Jim Boyles, General Secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada, says that a process for discussions has been prepared for Council members before they vote on the issues.
At CoGS on May 6 [2005], he said, Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, the Canadian Primate, will talk about the Primates' meeting in Northern Ireland.
This will be followed by a series of presentations by General Synod committees that have considered the matter. Council will also hear from youth, from the conservative group Essentials, and from Integrity, group that advocates for the full inclusion of gay and lesbian people in the church. Lutheran partners will also address the issue. The council, which ultimately makes the decision, will also consider positions on this issue taken by General Synod committees and a recent statement from the House of Bishops.
Friday evening, Council members will focus on the Windsor report. Council will also hear from the Primate's Theological Commission which was asked by General Synod 2004, to consider whether the blessing of same-sex unions is a matter of doctrine.
Council is expected to vote on the key issues on Saturday evening (May 7).
CoGS will also consider a host of resolutions and motions dealing with the work of the church and review General Synod's budget for 2005.
The Council's deliberations are normally public, although it does have the option to go into closed session.

[Windsor, Ont., 27 April 2005] The following statement was unanimously adopted by the Canadian House of Bishops meeting in Windsor, Ont., on April 27 [2005].
Statement of Commitment by the Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada
April 27, 2005
"If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all". Romans 12:18
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada, meeting collegially in Windsor, Ontario, April 25-27, 2005, send warm greetings to the Church. We met together in an atmosphere of prayer, which was hallmarked by charity and generosity of spirit.
In the midst of current tensions and disagreements within the Anglican Communion, we endeavoured in our conversation to be guided by the counsel of St. Paul writing to the Romans, "if it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all" (Rom 12:18).
Having considered the Report of the Lambeth Commission on Communion commonly known as the Windsor Report and the communique from the Primates of the Anglican Communion issued in February 2005, we make the following statement:
1. We affirm our continuing membership in the worldwide Anglican Communion. Our Church regularly supports the work of the Communion and a number of Canadians have served and continue to serve in significant roles through the work of the Anglican Communion Office in London, England. In partnership with other Provinces we remain committed to evangelism, a compassionate response to the needs of suffering humanity, and to programs in world relief. justice and peace for all. With humility we seek to honour our commitments, knowing our need to listen and learn from the experiences of our brothers and sisters in faith in other Provinces in the Communion.
2. We recognize that synodical decisions in some parts of the Canadian Church, and the response to these, have caused distress in some parts of the Communion. We are sorry for the pain that this has caused and we regret that together we have not achieved a level of consultation deemed sufficient to the magnitude of the issues under consideration.
3. In October 2004, we received with thanks the Windsor Report. Recognizing its importance we commended it for study throughout the Church. We requested our Primate to write a pastoral letter inviting response from Anglicans across Canada. Many responded to this invitation. Their responses were drawn together and formed the basis of the Canadian Response to the Windsor Report.
4. In acknowledging the collective desires expressed in the Primates' Communique we commit ourselves to respond as fully as possible to those of their recommendations as lie within our respective contexts and jurisdictions.
5. We appreciate the commitments of the Primates to "neither encourage not to initiate cross boundary interventions" by Primates or other Bishops in Provinces other than their own. This commitment is in keeping with the Councils of the early Church, statements of successive Lambeth Conferences and the Windsor Report. We have already adopted a procedure for Shared Episcopal Ministry.
6. On the matter of a moratorium on the authorization of public rites for the blessing of same sex unions, we commit ourselves neither to encourage nor to initiate the use of such rites until General Synod has made a decision on the matter.
7. In our consideration of the request of the Primates that the Anglican Church of Canada voluntarily withdraw its members from the Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Nottingham in June 2005, we see the value of the opportunity for reflection and response called for in the Windsor Report, but we also see risks inherent in honouring the request. We recognize that within our constitutional polity it is the responsibility of the Council of General Synod to consider and make a decision regarding this request. We support our Primate's statement that he will do all in his power to persuade the Council to honour it. We ask for the prayers of the whole Church, for the Primate and the members of the Council as they meet May 6-8 [2005] in Mississauga.
8. We are pleased to note the opportunity extended through the Primates' Communique to send a delegation to the Anglican Consultative Council meeting in June "to set out the thinking behind the recent actions of their Provinces", including the diversity of views on the matter of the blessing of same sex unions held by a number of constituencies within our Church, including ourselves, and the manner by which we endeavour to remain in dialogue and communion.
9. In keeping with resolution of the General Synod and previous statements of the House of Bishops, we affirm the place of gay and lesbian persons in our church and give thanks for their contribution to its life and witness. We agree with the words of paragraph 6 of the Primates' Communique which reads "the victimization or diminishment of human beings whose affections happen to be ordered towards people of the same sex is anathema to us". In our struggle to consider the blessing of their unions, we recognize that their various voices need to be heard more fully. We are grateful to note that in paragraph 17 of the Primates Communique that the Anglican Consultative Council is asked "to take positive steps to initiate the listening and study process called for by Lambeth 1998 and earlier Conferences".
10. In conclusion we wholeheartedly affirm our adherence to the Lambeth Quadrilateral which states:
1) The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as `containing all things necessary to salvation,' and as being the rule and ultimate standard of faith.
2) The Apostles' Creed, as the Baptismal Symbol; and the Nicene Creed, as the sufficient statement of the Christian faith.
3) The two Sacraments ordained by Christ Himself -- Baptism and the Supper of the Lord -- ministered with unfailing use of Christ's Words of Institution, and of the Elements ordained by Him.
4) The Historic Episcopate, locally adapted in the methods of its administration to the varying needs of the nations and peoples called of God into the Unity of his Church.
11. We uphold the Archbishop of Canterbury, The Primates' Meeting, The Lambeth Conference, and The Anglican Consultative Council. We further affirm the Ten Principles of Partnership adopted by the Anglican Consultative Council in 1993 and the Anglican Cycle of Prayer as sources of unity in the cause of mission.
12. In the endeavour to live peaceably, with all, we pray for humility, wisdom and compassion.
13. Blessings in the name of Jesus Christ who calls us into communion for the sake of his mission in the world.
House of Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada

[Authorized French translation]
Declaration d'engagement des eveques de l'Eglise anglicane du Canada
Le 27 avril 2005
"Si il est possible, autant que cela depend de vous, soyez en paix avec tous les hommes." Romains 12:18
Au nom de seigneur Jesus-Christ, les eveques de l'Eglise anglicane du Canada, reunis collegialement a Windsor (Ontario) de 25 au 27 avril 2005, ont transmis leurs salutations chaleureusements a l'Eglise. Nous nous sommes recontres dans une atmosphere de priere, marquee par l'esprit de charite et de generosite.
Au beau milieu des tensions actuelles et des desaccords au sein de la Communion anglicane, nous essayons de faire en sorte que notre conversation soit guidee par le conseil des ecrits de saint Paul aux Romains, "Si il est possible, autant que cela depend de vous, soyez en paix avec tous les hommes." (Romains 12:18)
Ayant pris en consideration le rapport de la Commission Lambeth sur la Communion, communement connue sous le nom de `Rapport Windsor' et de le communique des Primats de la Communion anglicane publie en fevrier 2005, nous faisons les declarations suivantes:
1. Nous affirmons notre statut de membre pemanent de la Communion anglicane mondiale. Notre Eglise appuie regulierement le travail de la Communion et plusieurs Canadiens ont servi et continuent de servir dans des roles importants par le biais du bureau de la Communion anglicane a Londres en Angleterre. En partenariat avec les autres provinces, nous demeurons engages dans l'evangelisation, une reponse compatissante aux besoins de la souffrance humaine at aux programmes de soulagement du monde, de la justice et de la paix pour tous. En toute humilite, nous cherchons a honorer nos engagements en reconnaissant notre besoin d'ecouter et d'apprendre a partir des experiences de nos freres et soeurs de foi avec les autres provinces de la Communion.
2. Nous reconnaissons que les decisions synodales dans certaines parties de l'Eglise canadienne, ainsi que la reponse a a celles-ci, one provoque la detresse dans certaines parties de la Communion. Nous sommes desoles qu'elles aient provoque de la douleur et nous regrettons qu'ensemble nous n'ayons pas atteint un niveau de consultation a la hauteur des questions soulevees.
3. En octobre 2004, nous avons recu avec gratitude le `Rapport Windsor'. Reconnaissant son importance, nous le recommandions a l'Eglise pour en faire l'etude. Nous avons demande a notre Primat d'ecrire une lettre pastorale invitant les Anglicans du Canada a y repondre. Plusieurs ont repondu a cette invitation. Leurs reponses one ete colligees et on forme la base des reponses canadiennes au `Rapport Windsor'.
4. En reconnaissant les desirs collectifs exprimes dans le communique des Primats, nous nous engageons a repondrew le plus possible sinon en totalite a leurs recommandations tant qu'elles se trouvent dans nos jurisdictions et contextes respectifs.
5. Nous apprecions les engagements des Primats a "n'encourager ni initier des interventions transfrontalieres" par eus ou les eveques des provinces autres que la leur. Cet engagement est conforme aux Conseils des premieres Eglises, aux declarations des Conferences Lambeth successives et au Rapport Windsor. Nous avons deja adopte une procedure pour un Ministere episcopal partage.
6. Au sujet d'un moratoire sur l'autorisation des rites publics pour l'assentiment moral des unions entre conjoints de meme sexe, nous nous sommes engages a ne pas encourager ni initier des rites jusqu'a ce qu'un synode general ait pris position sur le sujet.
7. Notre examen de la requete des Primats a l'effet que l'Eglise anglicane du Canada retire voluntairement ses membres de la reunion du Conseil consultatif a Nottingham en juin 2005 nour conduit a penser que c'est la l'occasion revee d'une reflexion a l'egard de la reponse exigee par le Rapport Windsor; mais nous constatons egalement les risques inherents au respect de la demande. Nous reconnaissons que dans notre politique constitutionnelle, it revient au Conseil du synode general d'etudier la question et de prendre une decision au sujet de cette demande. Nous appuyons la declaration de notre Primat qui fera tout en son pouvoir pour persuader le Conseil de respecter ceci. Nous faisons appel aux prieres de l'ensemble de l'Eglise, du Primat et des membres du Conseil lors de leurs recontres les 6 et 8 mai a Mississauga.
8. Nous sommes heureux de noter l'ouverture de la possibilite, grace au consultatif anglican de juin "pour etablir la pensee qui se cache derriere kes recentes actions de leurs Provinces", y compris la diversite d'opinions sur la plusieurs parties interessees de notre Eglise, y compris nous-memes, et la facon par laquelle nous nous efforcons de maintenir le dialogue et la communion.
9. En conservant les resolutions du Synode general et les declarations anterieures de l'Assemblee des Eveques, nous affirmons que les personnes homosexuelles one leur place dans notre eglise et nous les remercions pout leur contribution a sa vigeur en tant que temoins. Nous sommes d'accord avec le libelle du paragraphe 6 du communique des Primats qui enonce: "la victimisation ou la degradation des etres humains dont les marques d'affection se passent entre personnes de meme sexe est un anatheme pour nous". Dans notre combat pour considerer la benediction de leurs unions, nous reconnaissons que leurs differents voix doivent etre davantage entendues. Nous sommes heureux de noter que dans le paragraphe 17 du Communique des Primats que l'on demande au Conseil consultatif anglican "d'entreprendre des etapes positives afin d'initier l'ecoute et le processus d'etude demande lors de la Conference de Lambeth en1998 et lors des plus recentes conferences".
10. En conclusion, nous affirmons chaleureusement notre adhesions aux quatre declarations sous le nom de Lambeth Quadrilateral, lesquelles consacrent:
1. Les Ecritures saintes de l'Ancien et du Nouveau testament, en ce qu'elles "contiennent toutes les choses necessaires au Salut" et comme etant la regle et la norme ultime de la foi.
2. Le Credo des Apotres comme symbole du bapteme; et le Credo de Nicee comme une declaration satisfaisante de la foi chretienne.
3. Les deux sacraments ordonne par le Christ lui-meme -- le bapteme et la Cene du Seigneur -- adminstres par l'utilisation indefectibles des paroles du Christ de l'institution et des elements ordonnes par Lui.
4. L'Episcopat historique, adapte localement dans les methodes de son administration pour les besoins varies des nations et des peuples appeles par Dieu dans l'Unite de son Eglise.
11. Nous soutenons l'Archeveque de Canterbury, la Reunion des Primats, la Conference de Lambeth, et le Conseil consultatif anglican. De plus, nous affirmons que les Dix principes du partenariat adoptes par le Conseil consultatif anglican en 1993 et le Cycle anglican des intentions de prieres sont sources d'unite pour la cause de la mission.
12. Dans l'effort de vivre en paix avec tous, nous prions pour l'humilite, la sagesse et la compassion.
13. Benedictions au nom de Jesus-Christ qui nous demand d'entrer en communion pour l'amour de sa mission sur Terre.
L'Assemblee des Eveques de l'Eglise anglicane du Canada.

"Synod statement from November 2004: `As a synod we give thanks for the Windsor Report and all those that were committed to its preparation. It offers valuable tools to the Communion with which our serious problems can be addressed regarding the authority of the Scripture, order in the Church and the crisis over human sexuality that two provinces of the Communion have created by taking "rebellious and unilateral actions". Nevertheless it worries us that the report has not made a clearer call to repentance on the part of the Episcopal Church of the United States and the Anglican Church of Canada. They are the ones that have clearly taken decisions and endorsed practices against the Holy Scriptures and the apostolic tradition of two thousand years of ethical teaching of the Church and against the clear voice of the Communion. This synod insists on what our bishops said in their pastoral letter of February 2004, that our relationship with these provinces `can only be restored through repentance, pardon and love'."
