Text
Mindful of the 1989 General Synod motion, this House of Bishops encourages the Program Committee to circulate the document and encourage continuing discussion of the Confirmation Task Force Report in the context of Christian initiation in parishes, dioceses and theological colleges within the Anglican Church of Canada.
This House also encourages the Program Committee:
- to set up a continuing task force, made up of representatives from the Doctrine and Worship Committee, the Children's Unit, the Youth Unit and the House of Bishops.
- to monitor and collate results from that discussion and continue to be aware of developments in this area from other parts of the Communion, as well as the ecumenical scene and
- to consult with the House of Bishops about the recommendations prior to the General Synod. CARRIED

Prologue
Moved by: Bishop Somerville
Seconded by: Bishop Bothwell
"That this House of Bishops, having considered the new proposals for Christian Initiation, and the appended Forms of Service, commends the Doctrine and Worship Committee for its work, and respectfully submits to General Synod the following suggestions and request:
"That part 3 of the resolutions on page ii-10 of the Convening Circular is an acceptable and appropriate proposal, the approval of which we would welcome;
"That parts (1) and (2) of the same resolution authorizing trial use of the new alternative forms of Baptism and Confirmation would cause undue confusion and diversity of practice across Canada at a time when most of the rank and file of the Church has not fully understood the need for or purpose of a new Initiation Rite;
"This House of Bishops therefore requests General Synod to refer the new proposals and appended services to all the Dioceses across the country for study without experiment until General Synod 1975;
"And further, that a national study guide on Initiation be prepared by the Doctrine and Worship Committee (with approval by National Executive Council) to facilitate 'grassroots study' of the new proposals and their implications for every aspect of Church life, especially Christian Education."
Following considerable discussion, it was evident that there was no concensus and the Motion was withdrawn.

"That we concur in the recommendation of the Agenda Committee regarding the concurrent consideration of our Overseas work and our work in the North." CARRIED
Notes
At the request of the Primate, Archbishop Jackson led discussion of the Task Force on the North Report, (1-24 to 1-28 General Synod Convening Circular).
Following a short break, the Reverent T. Anthony spoke to the Program Committee Report (p. 1-15 to 1-17 General Synod Convening Circular), and a paper, "Resource for Issue Groups". It became evident that there were similarities of problems between the Task Force on the North and Overseas Work.
These two presentations, Archbishop Jackson's and the Reverend T. Anthony's, prepared the members for the specialized group discussions of the evening.
