Notes
"Anglicans across Canada are being called to demonstrate -- in the 22 days following the closing event of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission -- that this ending is only the beginning of healing and reconciliation with Canada's Indigenous people. Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, and National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald have issued a call to the whole church today to participate in #22days, a campaign that will stretch from the start of the closing of TRC event in Ottawa on May 31 [2015] to National Aboriginal Day on June 21 [2015]. 22days was first conceived of by a group of cathedral deans from cities in which a national TRC event was held and was 'heartily endorsed' by the House of Bishops" (p. 10). "The General Synod communications team has created a web page -- 22days.ca -- that will offer resources, including 22 videos featuring former residential school students and staff describing their experiences in the schools. The videos are not the typical 30-second sound bytes people are used to viewing on television, they are about 15 to 20 minutes each, in order to tell the stories in a more whole and sensitive way, said Anglican Video senior producer Lisa Barry. One video will be added daily to the website during the 22-day period and each will be accompanied by a prayer, written by various people in the church" (p. 11).

"The House of Bishops met in Niagara Falls, Ont., from April 8 to 12 [2013], and thanked three retiring bishops for their service. Bishop George Elliott, suffragan bishop in the diocese of Toronto, retired at the end of April. Bishops James Cowan and Michael Ingham, of the dioceses of British Columbia and New Westminster respectively, will both retire at the end of August [2013]. The bishops also discussed ways that they might provide more support for new bishops, such as creating a mentoring program to pair new bishops with experienced bishops. All the bishops received a copy of 'The Bible in the Life of the Church', a compilation of resources produced by the Anglican Communion. Bishop Stephen Andrews of the diocese of Algoma is anchoring a working group to examine the study". [Text of entire article.]

Notes
"Speaking at a conference hosted this past September [2013] by Wycliffe College to mark the 50th anniversary of the [1963 Anglican Congress] event, Bishop Stephen Andrews of the diocese of Algoma noted that the mid-1960s marked the peak of the Anglican demographic in Canada and it has fallen ever since. Wycliffe's conference looked back to the 1963 call for a relationship of 'mutual responsibility and interdependence' among the provinces of the Communion -- and also forward to the future of the Anglican Communion. Man of the speakers represented the perspective of conservative Anglicans who objected to the blessing of same-sex marriages and the election of gay and lesbian bishops in North American churches". Bishop Mouneer Anis, primate of Egypt, said "the Anglican Covenant currently being considered has been too 'watered down'. He added, 'Even if every province adopted the Covenant, it would not help our situation'." "Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon of the diocese of Kaduna in Nigeria said he believes there are extreme conservatives and liberals within the Communion, but a majority of about 70 per cent of Anglicans are in the middle and want the Communion to hold together. 'If this Communion has a mission, we must learn to accommodate one another'. Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi, the primate of Burundi, added, 'For genuine reconciliation to be a reality, there will have to be justice, repentance and forgiveness but, above all, speaking the truth in love. Thus reconciliation becomes a language of learning to live with the other and to manage our differences'."

"Response to the Supreme Court of Canada's decision on Feb. 6 [2015] to strike down the ban on assisted dying reveal just how diverse opinions on this subject are within the Anglican Church of Canada" (p. 1). "John Chapman, bishop of the diocese of Ottawa, was unequivocal in his support" (p. 1). "Bishop Stephen Andrews of the diocese of Algoma, however, was 'disappointed', expressing concern over the vagueness of the decision's wording and concern that the judgement was 'lacking in definition'" (p. 10). "Linda Nicholls, area bishop for Trent-Durham in the diocese of Toronto, noted that while 'public opinion has been moving in this direction for some time', Canadians might not fully understand what medical options are already available -- and like Andrews, she, too, was worried about the vagueness of the language" (p. 10). "For Bishop Jane Alexander of the diocese of Edmonton, it was important to see these developments in light of the church's historical and ongoing role in the provision of care. While the context for that care has changed, the mandate remains the same, she said. 'We've consistently supported in the Anglican church the use of palliative care and pain relief, and we know that pain relief can sometimes risk hastening death, but it's a different field now'" (p. 10).

Notes
"When the House of Bishops met in Niagara Falls, Ont., from April 13 to 17 [2015], they discussed some contentious issues, including possible amendments to the marriage canon and a call from the Anglican Council of Indigenous Peoples (ACIP) for significant changes to church structures. But Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, said there was, nevertheless, 'a spirit of hopefulness' at the gathering". "The bishops discussed the document, 'Where We Are Today: Twenty Years after the Covenant, an Indigenous Call to Church Leadership', in terms of what they thought needed more clarification, what they found encouraging and what they found challenging." "Hiltz observed that what underlies much of these discussions is the question, 'What is everybody's understanding of self-determination ?' This is a conversation that needs to continue, he said. People are not sure what self-determination will mean in terms of concrete changes, said Hiltz". "Bishops also endorsed the #22days campaign calling Anglicans to commit to working toward healing and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. ... Hiltz noted that Bishop Robert Hardwick of the diocese of Qu'Appelle shared plans to ring church bells for murdered and missing women and girls, and other bishops decided that could be done in all of their dioceses".
