That this General Synod
1. Affirm the Development Goal of the United Nations for each developed country to contribute 0.7% of its gross national product to Official Development Assistance (ODA) in developing countries.
2. Request the General Secretary to write to the Government of Canada by June 30, 2004, urging it to act on the 0.7% Development Goal, using the proposal of the Canadian Council of International Cooperation for reaching this goal by 2015:
- To increase foreign aid by 12% annually between 2009 -- an additional $750 million over the next three years to increases already planned
- To increase foreign aid by 15% between 2009-2015.
3. Affirm the challenge of the 1998 Lambeth Conference to dioceses and provinces of the Anglican Communion to provide 0.7% of their own resources to fight global poverty.
4. Request the Primate
- to encourage Anglicans to give their generous support to the PWRDF and Anglican Appeal, which together with the Partnerships budget of General Synod, represent the Anglican Church of Canada's financial commitment to supporting international development programs, fighting poverty, and strengthening international and intra-Anglican partnerships.
- to report to the Anglican Communion by August 31, 2004, through the Task Team on Poverty and Trade, on the Anglican Church of Canada's contributions to development and poverty work to help give a complete picture of the Anglican Communion's efforts to achieve Millennium Development Goals.

"The Pension Committee is recommending to the Council of General Synod that prior to approving the resolution, which is being presented by EcoJustice Committee with respect to Socially Responsible Investment Procedures, that it be referred to the Pension Committee for consultation and to report back to the next meeting of COGs."
Ms. Mason, who is retiring after 40 years of service to the Pension Plan, extended best wishes to Council and acknowledged that she will miss everyone. She has no doubts that the right choice was made when Council appointed Ms. Judy Robinson to be her successor.

"[By] Holt H. Graham".
"If one could read only one of Paul's letters, this should be the choice -- not only for its insight into the mind of the Apostle to the Gentiles, but also for his wisdom on issues that are still a matter of concern for us today". -- p. 2. "In addition to dealing with the problem of factionalism, the letter also deals with sexual behavior, lawsuits among Christians, marriage, food problems and pagan worship. The letter includes Paul's account (the earliest we have) of the institution of the Eucharist, the subject of spiritual gifts, the Resurrection of Christ and of the believer, and the famous 'hymn of love' in chapter 13". -- p. 3.
Contents headed "St. Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians".
Author "was for many years Professor of New Testament at the Virginia Theological Seminary before joining the faculty of United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities". -- back page.
