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).

Part of: Advertising Supplement: Focus on Education. "Now, Master of Divinity (MDiv) students at Wycliffe have two choices: enroll in the regular MDiv program to become a missional leader of an existing congregation; or take the new 'pioneer track' MDiv and train to begin new ministries, church and fresh expressions of church. The two tracks will offer the same foundational courses in Bible, theology and history, says John Bowen, associate professor and director of the Institute of Evangelism at Wycliffe College. However, students in the pioneer track will also have specialized courses and placements. While students in the traditional track do a placement in an existing church, for instance, students in the pioneer track are encouraged to get involved in a new initiative or to create their own". "The program is in keeping with the Fresh Expressions Initiative, which is part of Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams' vision of a 'mixed economy' church. In it, traditional churches and new expressions of church life grow alongside one another. What distinguishes a fresh expression of church from other innovative outreach initiatives is the goal of planting a new church rather than strengthening a new one". Graham McCaffrey, 23, started in Wycliffe's divinity program last year and has chosen the pioneer ministry stream.

Notes
"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
"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".
