Prologue
The Primate then asked the House for suggestions on topics which might be discussed when the House meets later in the year. The dates given were in November, but after discussion, the following motion was presented: -
Text
"That the next meeting of the House of Bishops be held during the first week in December from the fourth to the eighth." CARRIED
Notes
The Primate announced that the meeting would be in the Queen of the Apostles Renewal Centre.
Discussion then centred around the topics for consideration at that time. The following topics were eventually agreed upon: -
The Wider Ordained Ministry;
Christian Initiation;
Committee on a Constitution for the House of Bishops;
Committee on Tenure;
Ordination of Women;
Licencing.
During the discussion, the question of the relation of the House to the Committee on Doctrine and Worship received a good deal of consideration. It was felt that while certain Bishops were members of that General Synod Committee, there was need for more independence so that the House of Bishops might be able to give real leadership. The thought was expressed that the House should rightly be the Committee and the General Synod members added by way of liaison in order to avoid the difficulties which were apparent at the last meeting of General Synod where the House found the Report of that Committee unacceptable in the form to be presented. Others felt that the Bishops on the General Synod Committee could act as a liaison between the House and the Committee.

Prologue
Resolved that the Synod of Nova Scotia views with concern an apparent tendency in the Armed Forces to emphasize the function of the chaplains as members of the military structure at the expense of their primary position as clergymen and representatives of the Christian Church. It is sincerely believed that the Mission of the Chaplain should be clearly recognized as one of spiritual and social concern towards those to whom he is called to minister, that in as far as it is possible, his dignity and authority should be kept free of all suggestions of military rank and status.
This Synod, therefore, respectfully requests the House of Bishops and General Synod to give serious consideration to the present situation in regard to their Chaplains and to make such representation as may be appropriate to the Department of National Defence to the end that the Mission and witness of the church may be safe guarded and enhanced.
