Prologue
The referred resolution (see page 86) was returned. Mr. George Axon reported the opinion of the Expenditures Committee that the deadline shown in the resolution (i.e. for presentation to the National Executive Council in the Spring of 1994) could not be met, as additional funds and staff would be required. The Committee believed it would be possible to circulate a draft of the texts to members several months prior to General Synod 1995. As a result, the following revised motion was then presented:
Moved by: Rev. R. Blackman
Seconded by: Mr. M. Worthington
That this General Synod:
a) Direct the Hymn Book Task Force of the Doctrine and Worship Committee to continue work on a new Hymn Book and to circulate all proposed texts to each diocese a minimum of three months prior to General Synod 1995; and
b) Direct the Hymn Book Task Force to be inclusive and all encompassing in terms of Anglican theology, language, music and cultural heritage.
