A statement from the Primate, the Most Reverend Andrew S. Hutchison concerning the violence in the Middle East

Once again the peoples of the world are compelled to witness violence, hatred and pain in Israel and Lebanon. This is by no means a new phenomena and even the psalmist centuries before the birth of Christ called upon his community to, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem."

A statement by the Most Rev. Andrew S. Hutchison
Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada

Now that several days have passed since the end of the Primates’ Meeting in Belfast and the issuance of a communiqué that has received wide publicity, I thought that Canadian Anglicans might want to hear a bit more about the meeting, about the decisions that were made and about what those decisions will mean for the Canadian church in both the short and the long term. Where, in short, do we now find ourselves and where do we go from here?

A Statement from the Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada
During the past week the Primates of the Anglican Communion have been meeting at the Dromantine Retreat Centre in Northern Ireland. Together we have prayed, studied and listened to one another and to the Holy Spirit as we went about our work. The task before us was to seek a way forward in spite of the differences that exist concerning the subject of homosexuality.
