(iii) Report on Deceased Members.
The Bishop of Nova Scotia reported, with deep regret, the passing on January 25th, 1960, of the Right Reverend William Charles White, retired Bishop of Honan, China, and the first Bishop of that Diocese. Consecrated in November 30th, 1909 in St. James' Cathedral, Toronto, Bishop White gave his life to the work of the Church overseas. Due to his zeal and perseverance, the way was opened for the consecration of a Chinese priest to succeed him and thereby an indigenous episcopate for the Chung Hwa Sheng Kung Hui was established.

"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

Prologue
The Bishop of Ontario presented the revision of "Guidelines" which had been presented to the House at Augusta, 1968, but which had not been dealt with at that time. This revision of the Guidelines was printed as Appendix D to the Minutes of the 1968 Augusta meeting.
The Archbishop of Algoma also presented a report on behalf of a Committee appointed by the Primate to bring Lambeth Resolutions 40 and 41 before the House. This report was brought in while the House considered "Guidelines on Bishops" because its content was pertinent.
The report was as follows:
Resolution 40
In concurring with Resolution 40 (Lambeth Conference, 1968) the Committee appointed by the Primate, consisting of the Bishop of Moosonee, the Bishop of James' Bay and the Archbishop of Algoma, recommend that the Canadian House of Bishops adopt Resolution 40 (Lambeth Conference, 1968) and that the same be incorporated in the Minutes of this meeting.
For the implementation of this motion, the Committee would refer to Appendix D, Section VIII, Cl. (2) on page 31, 1968 Minutes -- (Guidelines for the use of Bishops) and further that Cl. (5) Section (e) be changed to make obligatory the appointment of an Assistant Bishop as ex officio member of the Executive.
Resolution 40: "The Conference affirms its opinion that all co-adjutor, suffragan, and full-time assistant bishops should exercise every kind of episcopal function and have their place as Bishops in the councils of the Church."
Resolution 41
The Committee recommend to the House of Bishops, the adoption of Resolution 41.
Resolution 41: "The Conference recommends that the bishops as leaders and representatives of a servant Church, should radically examine the honours paid to them in the course of divine worship, in titles and customary address, and in style of living, while having the necessary facilities for the efficient carry on of their work."
In its implementation, the Committee would suggest the dropping of diocesan signatures and meaningless titles, such as "My Lord".
