"Edited by Allan R. Brockway and J. Paul Rajashekar".
"The new religious movements 'may be constructive or destructive, can lead to a new freedom or new enslavement, can depersonalize individuals or reveal their fuller human potential, can depend on religious faith or on new rituals equivalent to magic and the occult, can reclaim the drug addict and encourage virtuous lives or exhibit immoral and demonic features'. But if we are to follow the way of Jesus, that of 'barrier-breaking and not barrier-building', these movements must challenge us to dialogue -- a dialogue that does not exclude criticism. These and related issues were discussed at a consultation jointly sponsored by the World Council of Churches and the Lutheran World Federation. The book brings together the papers presented at the consultation and its findings and recommendations". -- back cover.

Administrative History
The Woman’s Auxiliary was founded in April 1885 “for the promotion of missionary effort”. The first president was Margaret Medley, wife of the Bishop of Fredericton and Archbishop of the Province of Canada. Roberta E. Tilton of Ottawa was the major force in organizing both diocesan and parochial branches and in promoting the affiliation of existing groups and societies. The “Letter Leaflet” was a monthly publication first produced in the Diocese of Toronto. It expanded and became the W.A.’s official publication and in 1923 it was renamed “The Living Message”. The W.A. was reorganized in 1908 following the founding of the Missionary Society of the Church of England in Canada (MSCC) to conform to the structure of General Synod. Caroline M. Patterson Hall was elected president and the first meeting of the General Board was held in Winnipeg. Initially the work of the W.A. included mission education among Girls; Juniors and Little Helpers (Babies) branches; support of women working as missionaries and assistants in Japan (later China and India) and on Indian Reserves; Dorcas work and financial support for the education of missionaries children. A pension fund for women missionaries was established in 1910. In 1912 after several years of discussion the W.A. agreed to assume responsibility for work with women and children overseas. This included additional budgeted expenditures for evangelism, schools and hospitals. This agreement was extended to the Canadian mission field in 1919. In 1928 the general meeting became annual. Recognizing an expanded social service role in 1931 the W.A. added a clause to its Constitution governing its cooperation with the General Board of Religious Education (GBRE) and the Council for Social Service (CSS). In 1966 the constitution was amended and the Woman’s Auxiliary became the Anglican Church Women (ACW). Integration with General Synod was agreed as a national goal and took place in 1973. Since that time the organization exists by choice at the diocesan and parish levels.
