Photo: Simon Chambers[Anglican Journal] The Joint Assembly’s worship planning team was asked to come up with “a new and creative thing” for the gathering’s opening eucharist.They delivered. From beginning to end, it was no ordinary worship service.The liturgy opened with a series of video clips of congregations and individuals from across Canada, projected onto big screens throughout the plenary hall, offering the customary greeting: “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”Then, during the opening hymn, a 12-foot-tall inukshuk was taken apart, its various parts reassembled to create an altar on which the eucharist was celebrated, a font used for a remembrance of baptism and an ambo from which the scripture lessons were read.The worship planning team’s co-chairs said they chose to incorporate an inukshuk, a traditional marker for travellers used in the Arctic, because they were looking for a distinctively Canadian symbol.“Somehow a big beaver in the room didn’t quite cut it,” said Lutheran worship co-chair Eric Dyck.Anglican worship co-chair Catherine Ascah said the inukshuk was a good fit because its shape has “a cross-like feel to it,” while also being something highly identifiable and marking off a particular place—in this case, a 35,000 square-foot convention floor she describes as an “airport hanger.”A scripture passage from Acts recounting the baptism of the Ethiopian eunuch by Philip was alternately read by a lector in French and shown in pre-recorded video clips projected onto the big screens.The reading was interspersed with a thanksgiving for baptism and a renewal of baptismal vows, capped by a “waterless asperges.” Worship assistants─trailing long, flowing streams of blue fabric─ran between the tables of delegates, invoking the sprinkling rite that often accompanies of remembrance of baptism.In her sermon ELCIC National Bishop Susan Johnson exhorted the delegates to take seriously their baptismal commitment to bear witness to God’s word in the world, and challenged them to begin here at the Joint Assembly.“As you make new friends and meet old ones, fight the temptation to talk about the weather, or the length of time it takes to get up the escalators, or any other kind of filler conversation,” Bishop Johnson preached. “Instead, take the risk of sharing something about your faith. How have you experienced God’s love for the world? What is the faith story that you can share?”Archbishop Fred Hiltz presided at communion, intoning a eucharistic prayer that was an original composition for the Joint Assembly and will be used again at the closing service. After the bread and wine were consecrated at the altar they were distributed to the dozens of tables where delegates served each other communion.The liturgy concluded with a hymn, but no blessing or dismissal, which Ascah said is deliberately intended to frame the entire Joint Assembly in prayer.“We’re still praying,” she said. “We’re still worshipping and we’re still praying, and the final benediction is going to come at the closing eucharist.

Arguments put forth The petitioners were aggrieved of notice dated 19th October, 2020 issued by University of Kashmir whereby they have been asked to appear in the examination through offline mode after physical opening of the University. According to the petitioners, the mode of conducting of examination for them should be online as similar mode has been adopted by the other Universities as also in case of other faculties of University of Kashmir. It was submitted that most of the law students enrolled in the Kashmir University and other affiliated Colleges in Kashmir are from far flung areas of Kashmir and it is not possible for them in this global pandemic to risk their lives to come to Srinagar and sit in the examination. In short, the petitioners sought a direction to the respondent-University of Kashmir to conduct their examination for various semesters of LLB course through online mode only. Court’s Observations Noting that University of Kashmir is right in submitting that after the filing of the instant petition, certain developments have taken place that have changed the whole scenario, the Court said, “In view of these developments, insistence on a particular mode of examination may not be available to the petitioners.” The Court also noted that the Government of Jammu and Kashmir has issued the latest guidelines/instructions on Covid containment measures in the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir effective from 01st February 2021. “In view of the aforesaid guidelines, all the Educational Institutions in the UT of Jammu and Kashmir have been reopened and the students are physically attending their respective Educational Institutions”, remarked the Court. Importantly, the Court said, “In the face of this development, conducting of examination of the petitioners through physical mode is permissible, therefore, they cannot insist on conduct of their examination through online mode… the petitioners cannot claim that their examination should be conducted through online mode.” For the foregoing reasons, the Court did not find any justification in the relief sought by the petitioners so far as the same relates to insistence on online mode of examination. Lastly, the Court noted that valuable time of the petitioners has been lost and they have lagged behind in their normal course of studies and thus, the Court directed, “(University of Kashmir) is expected to address the concern of the petitioners and other students regarding the delay in completion of the course with all sensitivity and seriousness.” Accordingly, while declining the prayer of the petitioners to conduct their examination through on-line mode, a direction was issued to University of Kashmir to immediately conduct the examination of intermediary and 4th Semester law students within the current month only and further complete the 5th semester course of the petitioners expeditiously so that there is no delay in completing the said course.
