"[By] Stanton L. Jones and Mark A. Yarhouse".
Includes bibliographical references and index.
"In conducting this study we found empirical evidence that change of homosexual orientation may be possible through involvement in Exodus ministries, either (1) in the form of an embrace of chastity with a reduction in prominence of homosexual desire, or (2) in the form of a diminishing of homosexual attraction and an increase in heterosexual attraction with resulting satisfactory heterosexual adjustment. These latter individuals regard themselves as having changed their sexual orientation; the former regard themselves as having reestablished their sexual identities to be defined in some way other than by their homosexual attractions. Further, we found little evidence of harm incurred as a result of the involvement of the participants in the Exodus change process. These findings would appear to contradict the commonly expressed view of the mental health establishment that change of sexual orientation is impossible and that the attempt to change is highly likely to produce harm for those who make such an attempt". -- Conclusion, p. [364]-365.

Rupert’s Land – Diocese of Keewatin Presentation
The presentation began with a procession of the Elders, Bishops, diocesan members and Chiefs from the Diocese of Keewatin. Archbishop David Ashdown and Bishop Lydia Mamakwa led the presentation. Rev. Joel Bighead and Rev. Eli Morris lead the Synod in prayer. The Rev. Amos Winter traced the history of the Diocese’s ministry and movements towards self-determination for Indigenous Anglicans. Kenneth Kitchikeesik spoke of how the dream of self determination had been passed down through generations, bringing the diocese to the point of having a self-determining, self-sustaining diocese in northern Ontario and Bishop Lydia Mamakwa. The Very Rev. James Dugan traced the details of the growing ministries in the three distinct regions of the diocese. Bishop Don Phillips expressed the pride and excitement of the people of Rupert’s Land in being involved in the process of moving the southern area of Keewatin into the Diocese of Rupert’s Land. Bishop Michael Hawkins emphasized that self-determination is a theological movement not a political movement.
Text
That this General Synod in response to the unanimous request of the Synod of the Ecclesiastical Province of Rupert’s Land and the Synod of the Diocese of Keewatin and in accordance with Section 107 of the Constitution of the Province of Rupert’s Land and Section 7 b) iii) of The Declaration of Principles of the General Synod gives its concurrence to the division of the Diocese of Keewatin so that the area defined as Northern Ontario Region by the Constitution of the Diocese of Keewatin may become a separate diocese.
