Prologue
The Task Force presented the following draft "message."
1. The National Executive Council at its meeting on February 6, has passed the following resolutions:
1) That the National Executive Council affirms that the search for a true and lasting union with the United Church and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada is a primary goal.
2) That the National Executive Council affirms its view that Plan of Union in its present form is not acceptable.
3) That the National Executive Council re-affirms its commitment to ongoing negotiations on church union amongst the Anglican Church of Canada, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada, and the United Church of Canada.
4) That the National Executive Council considers that "commitment to a true and lasting union" with the United Church of Canada and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada should be sought from the members of the Anglican Church of Canada and requests General Synod to authorize a referendum to determine the people's position on this question.
2. The process of working for union at the moment does not require rejection of all the work that has been done though we are not content with it, and we are sure that to proceed with revision alone will not take us toward the goal. Far more is required.
3. One thing that is required for the Anglican Church of Canada is to take a referendum to obtain, or to fail to obtain, commitment to the goal of a "true and lasting union" with the United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada with whom we are now negotiating.
4. If that commitment is obtained we would like to negotiate with the other churches a process of agreement by stages, rather than by attempting to produce and gain acceptance in one step of a total plan of union.
5. Agreement by stages might be:
a) By deliberate removal one by one of the restrictions that separate us in such areas as: intercommunion; recognizing each other's ministeries; common membership; organization; episcopacy.
This would mean the deliberate extension of the Lund Principle into faith and order as well as into mission.
b) By improving the present documentation and obtaining agreement section by section in whatever time is required and on the grounds of an increasingly profound understanding of the Christian Faith as the Spirit gives us to perceive it.
6. We believe that working together for union will only have success if it is based on local negotiation and mutual commitment. It is not enough for national committees to arrive at decisions. All levels of church life must be involved in making the decisions which affect them.
Following presentation of the draft message it was noted that the first three motions had been passed by the National Executive Council but no action had been taken on number 4.
Moved by Somerville, seconded by Goodman,
That the National Executive Council considers that commitment to a true and lasting union with the United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada should be sought from the members of the Anglican Church of Canada and requests General Synod to authorize a referendum to determine the people's position on this question.
Amendment
Moved by Brown, seconded by Allan,
That the National Executive Council considers that commitment to the goal of true and lasting union with the United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada should be sought from the members of the Anglican Church of Canada and directs that the members be circularized forthwith to determine their attitude on this question before General Synod, 1975.
The motion as amended was put and CARRIED.
It was AGREED that paragraph 3 be omitted and it was recommended that if the report as a whole is adopted it be sent to the United Church and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada for their consideration and response.
It was recommended that if the members of the Anglican Church of Canada are to be circularized permission would have to be requested from the Bishop of each diocese.
Moved by Shepherd, seconded by Jackson,
That a statement on what is meant by "Union" be incorporated in the document. CARRIED
Moved by Carter, seconded by Watton,
That an addition be made to the document to become #1(5) "That the National Executive Council strongly affirms its commitment to the Lund Principle and that we urge the Anglican Church of Canada to act in accordance with the Principle wherever possible." CARRIED
Moved by Shepherd, seconded by Smith,
That this message be conveyed to the Executives of the partner Churches in the hope that they continue with the Anglican Church of Canada in negotiations. CARRIED
Text
That the document now be accepted as amended and the Task Force be asked to work on the re-wording. CARRIED
Notes
The Task Force subsequently presented the following amended and edited Message:
A MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL OF THE ANGLICAN CHURCH OF CANADA TO THE EXECUTIVES OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH (DISCIPLES OF CHRIST) IN CANADA AND THE UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA
1. The National Executive Council at its meeting on February 6, 1975 has passed the following resolutions:
1) That the National Executive Council affirms that the search for a true and lasting union with the United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada is a primary goal.
2) That the National Executive Council affirms its view that Plan of Union in its present form is not acceptable.
3) That the National Executive Council re-affirms its commitment to ongoing negotiating on Church Union amongst the Anglican Church of Canada, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada and the United Church of Canada.
4) That the National Executive Council considers that commitment to the goalof a true and lasting union with the United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada should be sought from the members of the Anglican Church of Canada and directs that the members be circularized forthwith to determine their attitude on this question before General Synod, 1975.
5) That the National Executive Council strongly affirms its commitment to the Lund Principle and that we urge the Anglican Church of Canada to act in accordance with this Principle wherever possible.
2. If commitment to ongoing negotiations on Church Union is obtained from our Church we propose to negotiate with the other churches a process of agreement by stages rather than by an attempt to produce and gain acceptance in one step for a total Plan of Union.
Our perception of the nature of this Union, and this is by no means a definitive statement, would at this point include:
- One community of Faith and Sacrament, including Ministry
- Mission
- Decision Making
3. This process of working for Union does not require the rejection of all the work done by our churches up to now. In fact, we are deeply grateful for much thought and work and prayer. However, we are convinced that to proceed with the revision of Plan of Union alone will not take us toward the goal. Far more than that is required.
4. By working for agreement by stages we mean undertaking the deliberate (ie. carefully planned) removal one by one of the restrictions that now separate us in such areas as:
- inter-communion
- recognizing each others Ministeries
- common membership
- common organization
- Episcopacy
This would mean the deliberate extension of the Lund Principle into Faith and Order as well as into Mission.

A letter from the Very Rev. F.F. Nock, Bishop-Elect of the Diocese of Algoma, submitting his resignation as Prolocutor of General Synod.
The Primate expressed congratulations to Dean Nock on his recent election.
Text
That the resignation be accepted. CARRIED
Notes
The Primate explained that Mr. Desmond Smith, as Deputy Prolocutor, now becomes the Prolocutor and that an election must be held for a new Deputy Prolocutor. Mr. D. Gibson, Registrar of General Synod, explained the Rules of Order for an election of a Deputy Prolocutor and indicated some discrepency in the Handbook. He recommended that the decision of the last General Synod be followed, ie.
"That words 'clerical and lay' be deleted from subsection 1 of Section 4 (Election of Prolocutor) on page 33 of the Handbook." (Act 12) - 1973 General Synod.
Moved by Graham, seconded by Rayner,
That this recommendation be accepted. CARRIED
The Deputy Prolocutor will be elected by all members of the National Executive Council - Bishops, Clergy and Laity.
