Synod narrowly defeats same-sex blessings

[Anglican Journal] Canadian Anglicans, meeting at their General Synod governing convention, voted by the slimmest of margins to defeat a proposal that would have permitted church blessing rites for gay couples. However, on the same day, the synod – also by a narrow margin – agreed that such blessings are “not in conflict with the core doctrine” of the church. Much of the sixth day of the synod was taken up with debate on the two questions, with dozens of people approaching microphones in the plenary hall to voice emotional opinions.

Anglican General Synod rejects “local option”

Following a long and passionate debate at the 2007 General Synod in Winnipeg, the Anglican Church of Canada has rejected the blessing of same-sex unions. The result is not decisive, however, as both clergy and laity voted in favour with the bishops narrowly defeating the resolution. Earlier resolutions affirmed that the blessing of same-sex unions is a doctrinal matter and that they are consistent with the core doctrine of the Anglican Church of Canada.

SEI 2007: Making Peace in the Household of God

The Prairie Centre for Ecumenism is pleased to announce that its Summer Ecumenical Institute for 2007 will take place in Saskatoon June 26-29. The theme of the conference is conflict resolution and transformation within and among churches, under the working title “Making Peace in the Household of God.”

Many Canadian churches appear to be experiencing conflict, often more within than between denominations. Liberals and conservatives in many churches are in tension over issues such as human sexuality and the interpretation of scripture, and the ‘heat’ seems to be rising. The skills of courtesy, listening and dialogue, which ecumenically-minded people have been developing over the years, are today needed just as much within our churches as between them.

Religious leaders build bridges

A group of Calgary clergy and lay people are quietly building bridges between the city’s Christian and Muslim communities in the wake of fears of rising interfaith tensions. Since its birth, Calgary’s Muslim-Christian Dialogue group has met on a monthly basis. While some valuable groundwork has been laid, group members are under no illusions that problems between Christians and Muslims will vanish in starry-eyed optimism and good works. They acknowledge that heated international political and theological feuds could migrate close to home. And they’d like to expand the group’s Christian complement to include more members from the evangelical wing of the faith. Christian representatives were drawn from Roman Catholic and “mainline” Protestant denominations, including Anglican, Presbyterian, Lutheran and United, as well as “unattached” members.

Bridgefolk models grass-roots ecumenism

Margaret Pfeil wants peace. She wants it so much that three and a half years ago she moved into St. Peter Claver Catholic Worker community, a house of hospitality in South Bend, Ind. She believes in radical political participation, so she doesn’t vote except in local elections. Once her student loans are paid off, she hopes to practice tax resistance by living below the poverty line. Pfeil, an assistant professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame, wants peace but sometimes she finds she needs to look outside the Catholic church to find the resources and support to help her live her faith.
