The Rev. Clare Stewart, rector of St. Timothy's, Edmonton, has been appointed by the Most Rev. Linda Nicholls, Archbishop and Primate, to serve as the Anglican Church of Canada representative on the Task Force on Creation for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada.

"Our full communion partnership continues to grow as we are committed to sharing our work on issues of common concern and interest," said Archbishop Nicholls in the appointment letter.

Stewart also serves as a member of the national Creation Matters Working Group, under the leadership of Ryan Weston, Lead Animator for Social and Ecological Justice.

She has an undergraduate degree in geological engineering and a master's degree in hydrogeology, and is a member of the North American chapter of the Society of Ordained Scientists.

We will share more about this new appointment in an upcoming issue of Synod Scene ...

Correction: an earlier version of this story said that Stewart previously served as a member of the national Creation Matters Working Group. She is still a contributing member of that group.
