Common Cause Partner-in-Focus

Next week, representatives of eight bodies in the Anglican tradition will be meeting in Pittsburgh. Representing several churches, and a number of organizations, “Common Cause Partners” have worked to help unify orthodox Anglican mission and witness in North America.

Two of the eight Common Cause partners are based in Canada. The 650,000 Canadian Anglicans have been embroiled in much the same crisis as The Episcopal Church (TEC) over the past several decades. The crisis intensified in Canada after the diocese of New Westminster voted in 2002 to bless same-sex unions and the General Synod of the Anglican Church in Canada voted in 2004 to affirm “the integrity and sanctity of committed adult same-sex relationships.”
