Prologue
The Reverend Canon Ansley Tucker and the Reverend Paul Robinson members of the General Synod Ministry Committee brought two resolutions (from the Committee) to the House of Bishops about the Advisory Committee on Postulants for Ordination (ACPO). Their purpose was to receive the House of Bishops' input about the resolutions (#3-2-84 re. ACPO contemplated for Canadian Forces personnel and #4-2-84 re. Categories for use by ACPO assessors in relation to prospective postulants) to be taken back to the Ministry Committee, before bringing the resolution to the National Executive Committee for approval.

In response to a query from Bishop Peers, it was noted that General Synod in 1965 authorized the Revised Standard Version for Lessons at Morning or Evening Prayer and that General Synod, 1967, authorized either Revised Standard Version or New English Bible for the Epistles and Gospels at the Eucharist.

The House then addressed a tabled motion from the spring 1997 meeting. (p. 10, April 1997 minutes)

Moved by: Bishop Ingham

While the House of Bishops, in reissuing and updating the 1979 Guidelines, states its commitment to the principles contained therein, nevertheless the House understands that individual bishops, acting with their diocesan synods, may wish to set these guidelines aside in specific instances and for pastoral reasons, and members of the House agree not to challenge the right of any bishop and/or diocese to do so.

"That the following be approved:
A. Pre-Consecration Seminar
The focus of this Seminar, probably lasting two or three days, would be upon the informational area, the spiritual dimension, and the theological dimension. Some work would also be done in the inter-personal and administrative dimensions.
B. Seminar for Recently Consecrated Bishops
Approximately six months after Consecration, an additional Seminar would be provided. Here again, the time span would probably be two or three days. The focus on this occasion would be on pressure areas, the personnel dimension and the leadership dimension. Some additional time would be spent in the informational area. Also, additional work would be done in the inter-personal dimension, and time would be allowed for some significant theological reflection.
C. Support of Episcopal Couples
Each newly elected Bishop would be encouraged to develop his own appropriate opportunity for reflection on this new ministry and its effect upon his wife and family. Some individuals may choose to spend two or three days alone with their wife thinking and planning together. In other cases, couples may wish to spend two or three days with another Bishop and his wife. While flexibility would be encouraged, each Bishop Elect who is married would be expected to do some disciplined work in this area with his wife." CARRIED
