Prologue
a) In connection with the article "The Most Misunderstood Disease" (Alcoholism) in the January 1973 issue of the Canadian Churchman, Mr. Gault complimented the staff of the paper and, in particular, Miss Carolyn Purden for her factual and accurate account of this problem. Because of the excellence of this article and the valuable information it contains, the paper was in great demand in his area of the country.
b) Concern was expressed at the apparent contradiction between the stand of the Canadian Churchman on the Third World, poverty and racism and its acceptance of advertisements of expensive tours.

Prologue
The Bishop of Ottawa read the following statement prepared for the Committee on Ecumenical Affairs concerning "Advance in Mission" and for the information of the National Executive Council. "That the United Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A., realizing that the Christian Church's outreach into society has not been effective in recent years, believes that consideration should be given to a program of 'Advance in Mission' in the 1970's. It had accordingly presented such a proposal to the National Council of Churches of Christ, U.S.A., and to the member churches of the Canadian Council of Churches. Specifically, the churches are invited to join in planning and interpreting such an Advance in Mission program. This would require consultation among the churches to determine the specific areas requiring attention, the degree to which any progress could be coordinated, and how the program of each church might complement the program of other churches."
He then presented the following resolution which had been approved by the Committee on Ecumenical Affairs:
"That the National Executive Council be asked to appoint one or more persons to consult with representatives of member churches of the Canadian Council of Churches and the National Council of Churches, U.S.A. about the proposals for an Advance in Mission program; and that a full report of such a consultation be considered by the National Executive Council before consideration is given to full participation of the Anglican Church of Canada in the planning and carrying out of the proposed Advance in Mission program in the 1970's."
