Text
"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
