Prologue
The Report of the Clergy Marriages Task Force was received and discussed. The policy of the Diocese of Calgary with respect to dysfunction and marital breakdown was found to be helpful in setting out a model of diocesan procedures and guidelines for the caring of clergy families. Some elements of it might be in conflict with human rights codes.
The bishops were informed that a Personnel Review Task Force has been established to study what services the national office is providing the dioceses since the retirement of the Reverend Richard Johns. A questionnaire is to go to all bishops as well as other networks of the church, and a recommendation will be made to NEC at some time in the future.
Text
That this House asks the Primate to set up a Task Force to consider ways of enabling the implementation of the recommendations of the Clergy Marriage Report in the various dioceses across the country and report to a future meeting of the House. CARRIED

"Cover title".
"Rev. Graham Cotter, Gladys Bryce and Anne Frost explore these issues and their implications for the church today". -- p. [1].
"Reprinted with permission. Canadian Churchman, June 1980". -- p. [4].
Contents divided into eight questions and answers: What are the origins of marriage ? -- In what ways does marriage express God's will ? -- Is marriage, then unrelated to the working out of the divine will, and is it only a remote and imperfect model of the divine union which is our goal ? -- Is divorce permissible ? Most people have interpreted Jesus' statements on divorce as condemning it entirely -- Is the remarriage of a divorced person a genuinely Christian freedom which we are now making available, or is it an example of giving in to popular worldly trends ? -- What about "living together" ? Can the church accept this modern phenomenon, which seems to be in flagrant opposition to the church's view of marriage ? -- Does the church have a double standard ? -- Are there then any standards ?
Printed on green paper.
