Prologue
Archbishop Nutter reported that the Primate wrote to the Archbishop of Canterbury, as requested at the November meeting of the House, and received a response to his letter from Canon S. Van Culin's response were distributed to the Bishops.
According to the formula outlined by Canon Van Culin, as developed at the March 1986 meeting of Primates, the Canadian Church is entitled to send three Suffragan Bishops. No provision is being made for the attendance of the wives of Suffragan Bishops at the Lambeth Conference.
The Metropolitans identified various methods of indicating the Suffragan Bishops who should be invited to attend from the Canadian Church. It was agreed that seniority should be the defining factor, but that no more than one Bishop should attend from the same Diocese. If any Suffragan is unable to go because of illness, or chooses not to go, the next senior Suffragan Bishop should take his place. The Metropolitans agreed that this proposal should be placed before the Bishops for their consideration.
Text
That the three Suffragan Bishops senior by Consecration be those designated to attend the Lambeth Conference in 1988, and that if any of those thus indicated are unable to attend, the next senior Suffragan Bishop shall take his place, with not more than one attending from any diocese. CARRIED

Notes
N.B. "Generic language" presumably means the formula "I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen". Inclusive language is not to be used with respect to the Trinity. Clarification provided by Liturgical Office -- 26 Oct. 1993]

Whereas the General Synod of 1980 requested the House of Bishops to give leadership in implementing an effective program of evangelism throughout our Church;
And Whereas it is evident that a number of Dioceses have already identified evangelism as one of the priorities in their Anglicans in Mission Diocesan Cases;
Therefore be it resolved:
That this House of Bishops calls Dioceses and parishes to consider seriously the implementation of effective programs of evangelism and further requests that General Synod approve in principle the allocation of funds for the appointment of a support staff person at such a time as the House of Bishops and the National Executive Council through consultation deem it appropriate.
