May They All Be One? But how?

 — May 17, 200317 mai 2003

I. When Jesus uttered the words ‘may they all be one’, they by no means represented a vision or a dream. Jesus said these words on the eve of his death. This was not the time for triumphal utopias. The Galilean spring, when the enthusiastic crowds overwhelmed him, was over. They no longer cried ‘Hosanna!’ but ‘Crucify him!’. Jesus was well aware of this, and predicted also that his disciples would not be one, and that they would be dispersed. What else could he do in this situation than to leave the future of his work in the hands of his Father? Thus, the words ‘may they all be one’ are a prayer, a prayer in a humanly perceived hopeless situation.

La Consultation canadienne entre juifs et chrétiens a repris ses conversations après plusieurs mois d’interruption. En avril 2002, Le Congrès juif canadien (CJC) s’était retiré du dialogue, qui se réunissait trois ou quatre fois par année depuis 1977, à cause de déclarations des Églises unie et anglicane au sujet de la violence au Moyen Orient.

A Model for Visits to Neighbour Churches

 — September 30, 200330 sept. 2003

Our journey toward a more visible communion among Christians begins by our being genuinely interested in each other. As in any good neighbourhood, we grow closer together through listening and exchanging points of view; being interested in the experiences of others, offering words of encouragement in difficult times and rejoicing together in happy times are the starting points of a sense of community. Paying a visit to one another is a meaningful and symbolic gesture; it shows that the other is important to us and is also a first step toward Christian reconciliation.

With this in mind, ten churches in Montreal’s West Island developed an interesting and simple pastoral model for observing the Week of Prayer for Christianity Unity. On one of the Sundays during the Week of Prayer, small groups of visitors attend the prayer service in a neighbouring church of another denomination. A visiting group of any one church numbers from two to four persons, preferably of all ages. They are laypeople, members of the congregation who willingly accept to go and meet another Christian community and worship with them. They participate in the Sunday service of the host church and, during the service, offer a word of greeting from their own congregation and a brief description of their church. They also refer to the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and the theme chosen for the current year.

Un modèle pour la semaine de prière

 — September 30, 200330 sept. 2003

Notre cheminement vers une communion plus visible entre chrétien(ne)s commence par l’intérêt que nous portons les uns pour les autres. Tout comme dans un bon voisinage, des liens se tissent par les moments d’écoute et d’échange; les petits signes d’intérêt au vécu de l’autre, les mots d’encouragement dans les moments difficiles ou la célébration commune des moments de joie sont à l’origine du sens de la communauté. Se rendre visite les uns aux autres est un geste significatif et symbolique, c’est une façon de montrer que l’autre nous est important et c’est aussi un premier pas vers la réconciliation des chrétien(ne)s.
Ainsi, une dizaine de paroisses dans l’ouest de l’île de Montréal ont développé un modèle pastoral intéressant, et en même temps très simple, pour honorer la Semaine de prière pour l’unité chrétienne. À un des deux dimanches qui encadrent la Semaine de prière, des petits groupes de visiteur(euse)s se rendent à la célébration d’une paroisse voisine, d’une autre dénomination que la leur. Un groupe de visiteur(euse)s d’une paroisse est constitué de deux à quatre personnes de tout âge, de préférence. Ces personnes sont des laïques, de simples paroissien(ne)s, qui acceptent volontiers d’aller rencontrer une autre communauté de foi et de célébrer avec elle. Ces personnes participent à la célébration dominicale de leurs hôtes et présentent, au cours de cette célébration, un mot de salutation de leur propre paroisse ainsi qu’une brève description de celle-ci. Elles font aussi référence à la Semaine de prière pour l’unité chrétienne et au thème qui a été choisi pour l’année en cours.

As we go about our daily lives, looking for the pathways that will help us live in harmony, we do so with the belief that our communities will be better places because of it. Relationships are at the heart of restorative justice, and when we actively use a restorative approach in which people are included and heard, there can be understanding, healing, accountability and a strengthened community.

A Statement by the Primates of the Anglican Communion

 — October 16, 200316 oct. 2003

The Primates of the Anglican Communion and the Moderators of the United Churches, meeting together at Lambeth Palace on the 15th and 16th October, 2003, wish to express our gratitude to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, for calling us together in response to recent events in the Diocese of New Westminster, Canada, and the Episcopal Church (USA), and welcoming us into his home so that we might take counsel together, and to seek to discern, in an atmosphere of common prayer and worship, the will and guidance of the Holy Spirit for the common life of the thirty-eight provinces which constitute our Communion.

At a time of tension, we have struggled at great cost with the issues before us, but have also been renewed and strengthened in our Communion with one another through our worship and study of the Bible. This has led us into a deeper commitment to work together, and we affirm our pride in the Anglican inheritance of faith and order and our firm desire to remain part of a Communion, where what we hold in common is much greater than that which divides us in proclaiming Good News to the world.

Archbishop of Canterbury’s statement at the final press conference of the Primates’ Meeting

 — October 16, 200316 oct. 2003

Good evening everyone. Thank you very much for joining us. I hope you’ve had a chance, at least, to glance at the statement which has been produced by our meeting which has, in fact, been unanimously agreed by the meeting of the primates. And I’d like to offer a few words of introduction to this before we turn to questions.

It has been a very remarkable couple of days in the life of the Anglican Communion and it has certainly been anything but easy. It has not been without pain. But it has been honest and open and I hope that we have grown in some real shared understanding as a result. And I do want to take this opportunity of paying tribute to my colleagues in the Communion for all the dedication and the energy and steadfastness in Christian service that they show generally and that they have shown in these two demanding days.

What happened at the Primates Meeting? A guide for our ecumenical partners

 — October 17, 200317 oct. 2003

As you will know, the Primates of the Anglican Communion met together at Lambeth Palace on 15 and 16 October in response to recent developments within the Anglican Church of Canada and the Episcopal Church of the United States of America. These developments included the election of a priest in a committed same sex relationship as a bishop, and the authorisation by one diocese in Canada of a public Rite of Blessing for Same Sex Unions. In their Statement at the end of the meeting, the Primates said four main things – (a) they committed themselves to working together in the Communion as far as possible, (b) they reaffirmed the teaching of the Anglican Communion on sexual ethics, (c) they acknowledged that recent developments will damage the Communion, and (d) they established a commission to take matters further.

It is with great gratitude to God and appreciation to the people of the Anglican Communion and other churches that we greet you in the name of Jesus Christ.

As we met this week at Lambeth we experienced the power of the Holy Spirit moving among us. We are so grateful to God for hearing the prayers and cries of his praying people to preserve both the truth and the unity of the Anglican Communion. We urge continued prayer that the whole Anglican Communion may continue by God’s power to witness to the transforming love of Jesus for all people.

Press statements from Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold and Archbishop Drexel Gomez

 — October 17, 200317 oct. 2003

At the final press conference at the end of the Primates’ Meeting yesterday, the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, USA, gave the following statement:

“I’d certainly like to underscore the Archbishop’s point about it being a difficult but truthful meeting. I think one thing that became very clear early on is that we seek to embody and proclaim the Gospel in very different contexts and what may, in fact, be good news to a majority in one province may, in fact, be bad news somewhere else in the world. And here I think particularly of my own province, the United States in which a majority, though not the whole province, has wrestled with the whole question of homosexuality for at least the last 30 years and come to a sense that men and women whose affections are ordered to members of the same sex are faithful members of the church; are people with whom we share ministry; are people we in many instances ordain, which of course has led to the confirmation of the election of the Bishop Elect of New Hampshire, which has caused such a division and certainly been one of the major focuses of our meeting here. But I do think what binds us together is deeper than some of the things that divide us and certainly the whole question of human sexuality; more particularly homosexuality; is far from settled and as we continue to struggle together I think it’s also important, as the Archbishop said, that we keep our focus on the mission we share because there is so much in the world that cries out for our attention beyond issues of human sexuality.

Statement from the Diocese of New Hampshire

 — October 17, 200317 oct. 2003

he Bishop and Standing Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire met today in response to the London meeting of the Primates from the 38 autonomous Provinces of the worldwide Anglican Communion for prayer, bible study and discussion. We acknowledge and affirm the wisdom of the Primates of the Anglican Communion in their statement. We echo their affirmation that “what we hold in common is much greater than that which divides us in proclaiming Good News to the world.”

We commend their resolve to follow the 1998 Lambeth resolution calling for the Church to “listen to the experience of homosexual persons, and … to assure them that they are loved by God and that all baptised, believing and faithful persons, regardless of sexual orientation, are full members of the Body of Christ.”

For the Primates of the Anglican Communion from Bishop Griswold

 — October 24, 200324 oct. 2003

I returned home from our meeting at Lambeth grateful for the spirit of candor in which we shared our thoughts and feelings. I thank God for the opportunity to come together in Christ’s name and for the strong bonds and mutual affection that exist between us. I pray that our common commitment to mission and God’s ongoing work of reconciliation will continue to bind us together in Christ in the days and years ahead. I remind myself that the church is not our possession but the risen body of Christ of which each one of us is a limb and member in virtue of our baptism.

As I tried to make plain in the course of our meeting, we in the Episcopal Church have been dealing openly with the place of homosexual persons in the life of our church for at least thirty years. Though the question still remains unresolved, the presence among us of deeply faithful men and women whose lives reveal the fruit of the Spirit, and whose primary affections are ordered to persons of the same sex, has brought us to this difficult, and very public, moment. I recognize that while many in our church give thanks for where we have come, many others are deeply pained and distressed. I further recognize how our decisions have also affected you and I hope you know how profoundly I regret the pain our Province’s action has caused many of you.

Anglican Communion – Commission announced

 — October 28, 200328 oct. 2003

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has announced the makeup and the terms of reference for a Commission to look at life in the Anglican Communion in the light of recent events. It is to be made up of members appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury and will be chaired by the Most Revd Robin Eames, Archbishop of Armagh.

The Commission, which is expected to begin its work early in the New Year, was formed as a result of a request from the recent Primates meeting at Lambeth Palace to the Archbishop of Canterbury. It will take particular account of the decision to authorise a service for use in connection with same sex unions in the Diocese of New Westminster, Canada, and the expected Consecration of the Revd Canon V Gene Robinson as Bishop Co-adjutor of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church (USA) on Sunday, November 2nd.

Archbishop of Canterbury’s address at the signing of an Anglican-Methodist Covenant

 — November 2, 20032 nov. 2003

A covenant between the Church of England and the Methodist Church of Great Britain was signed on November 1, 2003 at the Methodist Central Hall followed by a Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey. Dr Williams gave the following address at the signing ceremony.

At his first meeting with leaders of the Jewish community in Rome, Pope John XXIII, it’s said, greeted them with the words, “I am Joseph, your brother”. He was evoking one of the most poignant moments in the Old Testament: Joseph, whose arrogance had provoked the resentment and rejection of his brothers, is carried off into exile and slavery, then rises to great power. He finds that this power is given to him so that he can save the lives of his brothers when they come to him, not knowing him, begging him for help; and at last he reveals who he is: “I am Joseph, your brother”.

To the Christians and churches of Eastern Europe,

We, the 25 participants of the Ancient Oriental, Anglican, Baptist, Evangelical, Lutheran, Orthodox, Reformed and Roman Catholic traditions of Eastern Europe have just completed an eight-day “School for Mission: Preaching the Gospel in Eastern Europe” organized by the World Council of Churches and the Conference of European Churches.

Al Azhar Agreement enhanced by Cambridge visit

 — November 4, 20034 nov. 2003

The visit to Ridley Hall Theological College, Cambridge, England by Shaykh Fawzy El-Zafzaf, President of the Committee for Dialogue with the Monotheistic Faiths of Al Azhar, the renowned Islamic university and Centre in Cairo, Egypt, marks a significant new development in the building of relations between the Anglican Communion and Al Azhar.

As part of the agreement signed by Archbishop Carey, then Archbishop of Canterbury, and Shaykh Tantawy, the Grand Shaykh of Al Azhar in January 2002, the two parties committed themselves not only to regular ‘dialogue’ meetings, but also to find other ways in which they might learn more about the faith of each other. It was agreed to seek to establish reciprocal study visits in which staff and students of Al Azhar would spend time at Anglican theological institutions, and Anglican theologians and theological students would similarly visit Al Azhar. Shaykh Fawzy’s visit to Ridley Hall, 5-11 October 2003, during which he was accompanied by Bishop Mouneer Anis, the Anglican Bishop of Egypt and North Africa will, it is hoped, prove to be the first of a number of such exchanges.

Secret deals and stonewalling

 — November 15, 200315 nov. 2003

Bernard Daly was a Canadian journalist standing probably 15 feet in front of Pope John XXIII when the pontiff announced on Oct. 13, 1962, that the Second Vatican Council was about to change the modern world for Catholics.

“I had been a journalist for 14 years, writing about public events and commenting on them,” says Daly, “but the assignment to cover Vatican II as the only English-speaking Canadian journalist was a complete surprise and, in reality, such an honour.

“There he was, on a raised platform in the Sistine Chapel, in front of 1,000 journalists, with that beautiful face and jovial attitude, and none of us knew really what to expect. He spoke in French, I could follow well enough, and the texts were supplied in English later. And what he was telling us was that we should tell the truth, the whole truth, about what was going to happen during the council.”

Communiqué of the Anglican-Oriental Orthodox International Commission

 — November 17, 200317 nov. 2003

The meeting of the Anglican-Oriental Orthodox International Commission, which was to have taken place at Walsingham from Tuesday 28 October to Sunday 2 November 2003, has been postponed at the suggestion of the Heads of the Coptic Orthodox Church (His Holiness Pope Shenouda III), the Syrian Orthodox Church (His Holiness Patriarch Zakka I) and the Armenian Orthodox Church, Catholicosate of Cilicia (His Holiness Catholicos Aram I), who met in Antelias, Lebanon, on 17 and 18 October 2003.

The present time is clearly a moment of uncertainty in the life of the Anglican Communion, with the consecration of a homosexual person in a committed, same-sex relationship as a Bishop within the Episcopal Church (USA). The developments facing the Communion were addressed in the Statement of the Primates of the Anglican Communion who met together with the Moderators of the United Churches at Lambeth Palace, London, on 15 and 16 October, to consider their reactions and the way forward for the Communion. In the light of that meeting, the Archbishop of Canterbury has set up a Commission which will look at the future structures of the Communion in the light of decisions taken in the Episcopal Church (USA) and in the Anglican Church of Canada.

'My peace I give you': Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
'Ma paix je vous la donne' : Semaine de prière pour l'unité chrétienne

My Peace I give you

 — December 1, 20031 déc. 2003

“My Peace I give you” (John 14:23-31), Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, January 18 to 25, 2004

The theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2004 has been chosen by Christians in Aleppo, Syria. In the Middle-East, as in many other places in the world, people hunger for peace. The biblical passage John 14:23-31 offers us a response to our common hunger. It shows how Christ’s reconciliation helps to draw us into closer communion with one another. Our path to peace leads us to reconciliation among the churches and on that ground we can also seek healthy relationships between all religious traditions.

«Je vous donne ma paix» (Jean 14, 23-31), Semaine de prière pour l’unité chrétienne, du 18 au 25 janvier 2004

Le thème de la semaine de prière pour l’unité chrétienne en 2004 nous est proposé par les chrétiennes et chrétiens d’Alep en Syrie. Au Moyen-Orient, comme dans d’autres endroits du monde, il y a une grande faim de paix. Le texte biblique Jean 14,23-31 répond à cette commune faim de paix et nous montre comment la réconciliation avec le Christ nous amène à une communion plus étroite des uns avec les autres. Notre chemin de la paix comme chrétiens et chrétiennes passe par la réconciliation entre les Églises. Celle-ci nous aidera ensuite à établir de saines relations entre les différentes traditions religieuses dans le monde.
