    Bishop of Cuba thankful for ‘bridges of hope’
    Following U.S. President Barack Obama’s decision Dec. 17 to re-establish diplomatic ties with Cuba after 54 years, the leadership of the Episcopal Church of Cuba released a statement thanking God for the repatriation of prisoners to both countries and thanking the churches in the United States for the “bridges of hope” they affirmed during the decades of separation.

    The last weekend before Christmas is traditionally one of the busiest times of the year, when the frenzy of planning family gatherings and shopping for gifts can reach fever pitch. But for a group in Victoria, B.C., this coming Dec. 20 and 21 will involve a different type of activity.

    US-Cuba thaw opens up possibilities for churches

    In a historic announcement Dec. 17, President Barack Obama said the United States would re-establish diplomatic relations with Cuba after 54 years of isolationist foreign policy toward the island nation that included a crippling trade embargo. The decision will have far-reaching effects on the island nation’s economic and diplomatic situation and on the lives of its 11.26 million citizens, but it may also mean that new possibilities open up for the Episcopal Church of Cuba (ECC).

  • New book on reconciliation a ‘timely’ resource

    New book on reconciliation a ‘timely’ resource
    It is a fractious time in the life of the Anglican church, both in Canada and in the world, but even as the Communion struggles to overcome pernicious divisions over issues such as human sexuality or the ordination of women, it is also turning to the tradition of the scriptures and the indigenous wisdom of its diverse membership to find potential ways forward.
