"In 1980, the General Synod established a Task Force on Human Rights that has been working and reporting over the last 11 years. Its mandate is broad and includes the evaluation of our own practices and structures in order to allow 'full participation from all segments of the church at all levels'. With that in mind, the committee has focused its energy on preparing the Human Rights Principles related particularly to our own institutional structure. They are enclosed in this study guide. .... As we try to discern what it means to act justly in our broken world, we must face the issue of human rights in our own life within the church. I commend this study of human rights to all of you and ask that members of the General Synod, in particular, familiarize themselves with the material so that our debate in June 1992 will be well-informed and constructive. We must represent our tradition faithfully as well as face the future with courage". -- A Letter, p. 1.
