Prologue
It was suggested that, before each meeting of the N.E.C., the chairmen of the major committees, along with appropriate staff personnel, shall meet with the General Secretary to plan the Agenda.
It was agreed that the first matter for consideration each day should be the "Orders of the Day", as recommended by the Steering Committee.
Mr. Gibson described the usual pattern of N.E.C. and Committee meetings and noted that, acting under the Constitution and Canons, the N.E.C. must meet three times a year. It was agreed that, if N.E.C. were to meet at a time other than Quarterly Meetings, reports of the Committees could be made available to N.E.C. members earlier, thereby providing members with adequate time for study and reflection.
He suggested an experiment during the next year or so with twice yearly meetings of the Standing Committees in connection with N.E.C., the latter meeting a third time as well. The Program and Long Range Planning Committees, and possibly the Administration and Finance Committee, would continue to meet more frequently as required.
Text
That the pattern of the committee meetings be:
a) Meet only twice a year
b) Committees meet Monday to Wednesday supper
c) Chairmen's meeting Wednesday evening
d) Thursday morning and afternoon: N.E.C. preparations and meeting of task forces
e) N.E.C. meet Thursday evening, all day Friday, Saturday until noon
f) Program/LRP Committees probably meet at a time other than this week. CARRIED

Prologue
Canon R.R. Latimer, the Executive Commissioner for Church Union, presented the report of the General Commission. He also reported on the Tenth Consultation on Church Union (C.O.C.U.) which he had recently attended.
After discussion of the Plan of Union, First Draft, a resolution from the Inter-Church Relations Committee was presented:
The Inter-Church Relations Committee having received and studied a variety of reports including:
1. A report of the work of the General Commission
2. A report of the latest C.O.C.U. Conference
3. A response from the House of Bishops following a consideration of the Plan of Union - First Draft
4. A report of the Anglican Council of North America and the Caribbean which gave thought to re-union discussions.
Recommends that the National Executive Council communicates with the General Commission on Church Union.
1. Commending it for the faithful and hard and valuable work that had been done.
2. Asking if changes in general attitude and outlook in Canada and elsewhere in the world since the Commission began its work do not call for a re-assessment of the present situation and the exploration of possible different emphases as we seek to move ahead towards unity.
Such different emphases might include:
1. Placing greater emphasis upon processes which would enable Churches to grow together rather than focussing almost total emphases upon the preparation of a plan. This might be accomplished by such means as:
a) Encouraging more vigorously cooperation between members of the three churches (and other churches) in God's work in the world.
b) "Exploring the possibility of sacramental communion on the basis of a common statement of faith and agreement on the question of the Minister of the Eucharist."
c) "Supporting increased sharing of the members of the three churches in the congregational life of each other, in study and organizational life, and in other worship activities."
2. Exploring further the nature of "unity" that human beings generally and Christians in particular seem to be seeking at this time.
3. Ways of meeting the problems of the mind and heart and spirit of men with a new flowering of Christian faith and life.
Moved by Luxton
Seconded by Brown
That the resolution be approved, deleting the words:
"2. Asking if changes in general attitude and outlook in Canada and elsewhere in the world since the Commission began its work do not call for a re-assessment of the present situation and the exploration of possible different emphases as we seek to move ahead towards unity.
Such different emphases might include:"
and replacing them by:
"2. In considering its work, it consider:"
An amendment was then introduced:
Moved by Huston
Seconded by Jackson
That "In considering its work, it consider" be expanded to read "In considering its work towards organic union, it consider"; and that the words "rather than focussing almost total emphasis upon the preparation of a plan" in #1 be deleted.
An amendment to the amendment was proposed:
Text
Amendment to the Amendment
That the words "rather than focussing almost total emphasis upon the preparation of a plan" be reinstated.
Moved by Goodman
Seconded by Graham
That the motion and amendments be tabled until the February meeting of NEC. DEFEATED
After considerable discussion -
The Amendment to the Amendment was put and CARRIED.
The Amendment as Amended was put and CARRIED.
The Motion as Amended was put and CARRIED.
Notes
This amended motion reads:
That, having received
- a report of the work of the General Commission,
- a report of the latest C.O.C.U. Conference,
- a response from the House of Bishops following a consideration of the Plan of Union - First Draft, and
- a report of the Anglican Council of North America and the Caribbean which gave thought to re-union discussions,
the National Executive Council communicate with the General Commission on Church Union:
1. commending it for the faithful and hard and valuable work that has been done; and
2. recommending that, in continuing its work towards organic union, it
a. place greater emphasis upon processes which would enable Churches to grow together rather than focussing almost total emphasis upon the preparation of a plan. This might be accomplished by such means as:
i) encouraging more vigorously cooperation between members of the three churches (and other churches) in God's work in the world;
ii) "exploring the possibility of sacramental communion on the basis of a common statement of faith and agreement on the question of the Minister of the Eucharist";
iii) "Supporting increased sharing of the members of the three churches in the congregational life of each other, in study and education, in programme planning and organizational life, and in other worship activities."
b) explore further the nature of "unity" that human beings generally and Christians in particular seem to be seeking at this time.
c) consider ways of meeting the problems of the mind and heart and spirit of men with a new flowering of Christian faith and life.
