Prologue
Bishop Valentine, as chairman of the Continuing Education Committee, explained the background for inviting Dr. Donald Cupitt, Professor of Theology at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and Bishop Wesley Frensdorff, Bishop of Nevada, to share with the House their thoughts on Folk Religion and the Renewal/Charismatic Movements as they affect the responsibilities and decisions of bishops.
Folk Religion
Dr. Cupitt posed two questions:
1. How can the Church, with its monarchical background, adapt to the pluralism of today?
2. What kind of faith is possible for modern secular and autonomous man?
He went on to outline three manifestations of present-day spiritual life: (a) Folk Religion; (b) Ecstatic Religion; (c) Movement to Radical Freedom.
The House divided into groups for discussion following which Dr. Culpitt answered various questions.
Bishop Frensdorff was asked to respond to the paper given in the morning session by Dr. Culpitt, and following this, he and Dr. Culpitt engaged in a dialogue interspersed by questions directed to them by members of the House. The House again divided into groups for discussion.
Forms of Renewal
Bishop Valentine gave a brief description of a number of forms of renewal present in the life of the Church today. These included: Cursillo, Teens Encounter Christ, Marriage Encounter, Prayer and Praise Groups, Healing Groups, Bible Study Groups and Worship Groups. Others suggested by members of the House were: Focolare, Core or Search, The Full Gospel Businessmen's Association, Women Aglow, Core Communities, and Christian Communal Living.
Bishop Frensdorff spoke on the general topic of "how to be a pastor to these movements." He noted that as well as in these movements there are also renewal activities in liturgy, ministry and evangelism. In the course of his remarks he identified many issues inherent in the renewal movements and expressed his views of some of the pros and cons relating to them.
The House participated in a dialogue led by Professor Culpitt and Bishop Frensdorff.
The Primate expressed the deep thanks of the House for the presence, contribution and participation of Dr. Culpitt and Bishop Frensdorff.

That this Council of General Synod accept Recommendations D 1-6 on "Continuing Education" from the Interim Report and Recommendations of the Consultation on Discernment for Ordained Ministry, including the revisions proposed by the House of Bishops, and request the Faith, Worship and Ministry Committee to take responsibility for implementing the recommendations. CARRIED #06-11-97
Notes
Recommendations D 1-6 are as follows [and underlined sections reflect revisions made by House of Bishops] {in electronic text revisions are indicated in upper case}:
1. In accordance with the Continuing Education Plan and with the knowledge that intentionally addessing professional and vocational growth leads to enhanced capacity in carrying out the work of the Church, we recommend that all clergy and bishops design, carry out and evaluate an annual individual professional and vocational growth plan. Ideally this work will be done collaboratively with their supervisor/metropolitan/bishop, or his/her designate, in a spirit of mutual inquiry and support.
2. We recommend that diocesan leadership publicly articulate:
a) the importance of and benefits accruing from professional and vocational growth
b) that professional and vocational growth is part of "the work" of the clergy.
3. We recommend that diocesan leadership assist in resourcing professional, vocational AND SPIRITUAL growth.
4. We recommend that in the area of professional and vocational growth, dioceses and theological colleges work in stronger partnership.
5. We recommend that the recommendations from the Mutual Ministry Review report (Committee on Ministry, General Synod 1995) be revisited and form part of the development of annual evaluation strategies for clergy and their parishes, to be implemented by 2001.
6. WE RECOMMEND THAT BISHOPS AND DIOCESES ENCOURAGE SABBATICAL LEAVES.

Prologue
Archbishop Crawley spoke to the House of Bishops about two issues related to the General Synod Continuing Education Fund. The first point was about the definition used by General Synod for "sabbatical", and the second point was about priests using money from their continuing education funds for church computers.
I) Sabbatical
Archbishop Crawley said that his difficulty with the General Synod definition of a sabbatical was its inflexibility in what qualifies as one. The current definition says that a sabbatical is 8 consecutive weeks (off) or study in a D.Min program. He said that the clergy of the Diocese of Kootenay have asked him to request more flexibility in what would qualify as a sabbatical because taking 8 weeks away from the parish is an unrealistic expectation for many parish priests. (Many parishes cannot afford to hire an interim priest for that duration.)
Archbishop Crawley asked his colleagues whether they would be prepared to pass a motion requesting the General Synod Continuing Education Committee to look at broadening their definition for a sabbatical leave.
Text
In the light of current educational opportunities, the National House of Bishops requests the Continuing Education Committee of General Synod to examine ways in which the continuing education policy can be more flexible in its definition of a sabbatical leave. CARRIED #07-11-98
Notes
II) Computers
In the past, many parish priests used their continuing education funds to purchase books, and then they started to buy personal computers with it. However, Archbishop Crawley said that he has recently discovered that some parishes are using their priest's continuing education funds to subsidize computers for the parish. Archbishop Crawley expressed his feeling that in this age, computers are actually necessary tools of business. He asked whether others (in the House) shared his position. Discussion followed. Bishop Hutchison said that the Diocese of Montreal had other means of funding for priests wanting assistance to get hardware.
Archbishop Peers offered that "sabbatical" implies "rest" which might be a reason for the duration listed in the General Synod Continuing Education Fund's definition. Other words suggested as possible alternatives were "long term study" or "degrees". The Primate requested that Bishop Hannen and Bishop Lawrence work on possible wording which could be proposed with the request to the General Synod Continuing Education Committee.
