Follow Canadian blog at Anglican Consultative Council
The three Canadian delegates to the Anglican Consultative Council are blogging about their experience as the council holds its 15th meeting in Auckland, New Zealand, Oct. 27 to Nov. 7. Blog posts are written by Dean Peter Elliott (Diocese of New Westminster), Suzanne Lawson (Diocese of Toronto), and Bishop Sue Moxley (Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island).
The Anglican Consultative Council is an instrument of the Anglican Communion that gathers lay and ordained delegates every two to three years to encourage cooperation between national churches. The Auckland meeting will cover a range of topics, from the Anglican Covenant to the Bible in the Life of the Church project.
Other Canadian volunteers will attend, including General Synod's Indigenous Ministries coordinator the Rev. Canon Ginny Doctor (Anglican Indigenous Network); Principal Secretary to the Primate Archdeacon Paul Feheley (seconded to support ACC-15 press and communications); the Rev. Ken Gray (chair, Anglican Communion Environmental Network); Marion Little (Anglican Communion Safe Church Consultation); and the Rev. Canon Alice Medcof (International Anglican Women's Network).
