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).

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".

Notes
"For Anglicans considering how to observe Lent this year [2014], the Anglican Church of Canada is offering two online resources -- one, a study of the Gospel of John, and the other, a study of baptismal identity. 'Love life: Living the Gospel of love' is a Lenten video series produced by the brothers of the Society of St. John the Evangelist (SSJE) for the Anglican Church of Canada. Starting on Ash Wednesday, March 5 [2014], those who subscribe on anglican.ca/lent2014 will receive daily emails that will include a short video and thought-provoking question to ponder during the day". "'Becoming the Story We Tell: renewing our commitment to Christ crucified and risen' is the other online resource that the national church has developed for Lenten study. It is available at anglican.ca/becoming. The resource had its beginnings with a 2012 task force examining questions about Christian hospitality and 'open table' -- inviting those who are not baptized to communion -- and expanded to a broader consideration of baptismal identity". Jesse Dymond, the General Synod's online community co-ordinator said "[b]oth resource are very useful ... 'I could see a parish using both in tandem actually, with separate groups". "The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is also offering a Lenten study that focuses on the issues of food security in relation to baptismal vows". "Kairos, an ecumenical social justice organization supported by the Anglican Church of Canada, also has an online weekly lectionary-based reflection series on kairoscanada.org called 'Spirited Reflections', which will reflect Lenten themes".
