Prologue
Bishop Berry presented the following report of the Doctrine and Worship Committee on Biblical translations recommended for public reading.
BIBLICAL TRANSLATIONS
"In drawing up a list of biblical translations recommended for public reading, the Task Force began by generating criteria by which a translation might be excluded from such a list. Translations excluded by these criteria were noted. The exclusion of a translation as not suitable for public reading in the Anglican Church of Canada does not mean that the translation is necessarily unsuitable for study purposes.
I. Criteria for exclusion of a particular translation
i. Paraphrases, e.g. The Living Bible, J.B. Philips, Barclay, Cotton Patch.
ii. Translations made for particular doctrinal purposes rather than rendering the original text, e.g. The Living Bible, Jehovah's Witnesses.
iii. Translations which are translations of translations, e.g. The Living Bible, Jerusalem Bible (1966).
iv. Translations which replace words through "computer search" rather than by examination of each text, e.g. NCC Inclusive translation.
v. Translations from another culture, e.g. New English Bible, Cotton Patch.
vi. Abridgements/harmonies, e.g. Reader's Digest.
vii. Translations in colloquial rather than contemporary English, e.g. New English Bible
II. Recommendations
The Task Force recommends the following translations for public reading in the Anglican Church of Canada (by date of publication).
- King James (Authorized Version) 1611
- Revised Standard Version 1952 (and its revision as Common Bible)
- New American Bible 1970
- Today's English Version (Good News) 1976
- New International Version 1978
- New Jerusalem 1985
Selection
The Task Force suggests that local communities consider the following criteria when choosing a translation suitable for their needs and purposes.
- the nature of the local community, its cultural profile, education levels, etc.
- the fidelity of the translations to the original text.
- no gratuitous use of exclusive language.
- intelligible in terms of contemporary English use.
- natural use of language.
- coherence with the language of the liturgy itself.
- does the translation give help with the pronunciation of proper nouns ?
No one criterion is a sufficient basis for a community's choice."

Prologue
Bishop Shepherd said that he was invited to attend a conference of chaplains engaged in institutional chaplaincy work, and was requested to act as "chairman" to the caucus of Anglican priests.
Bishop Shepherd reported that the chaplains feel a low level of support from the church in their specialized area of work, and expressed the desire to have closer relationships with the diocesan life of the Church.
It was recognized that the lack of uniformity in licensing procedures causes some difficulties.
Text
That this matter be referred to the Committee on Ministry.

Notes
Bishop Hatton distributed terms of reference and the job description of the Bishop Ordinary. He described the changing nature of the work of the Bishop Ordinary, indicating that he hopes to place emphasis on pastoral work with chaplains and their families, and Anglicans on the bases. He said that if confirmations were taken by the bishop of the diocese in which the base is located, closer ties with the dioceses could be established. Bishop Hatton said that Anglicans who live on bases are concerned about the remote possibility of being elected as members of diocesan, Provincial or General Synods.
