Prologue
Bishop Snowden referred to the Motion of the National Executive Council which requested that the Task Force be discharged, that the House of Bishops be requested to take appropriate action on the report, and that consultations to consider the existing documents be held between the Churches involved.
The question arose as to what is actually meant by "recognition." The report does not provide specific recommendations for action. Licensing must be done by a liturgical act.
Concern was expressed that one thing is said to the United Church and something quite different is said to the Roman Catholic Church.
The view was expressed that change will come through liturgies and it is, therefore, important that any altering of liturgies be carefully considered.
Text
That this House express its appreciation to the Joint Anglican/United Churches Task Force on Mutual Recognition of Ministers.
While some members of the House might wish to express disappointment that the outcome of the Task Force's work is not an advance on the existing situation, yet we are all aware of the diligence with which the Task Force struggled over a long period - with this most difficult subject - and we express our thanks.
