Prologue
The Task Force presented the following draft "message."
1. The National Executive Council at its meeting on February 6, has passed the following resolutions:
1) That the National Executive Council affirms that the search for a true and lasting union with the United Church and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada is a primary goal.
2) That the National Executive Council affirms its view that Plan of Union in its present form is not acceptable.
3) That the National Executive Council re-affirms its commitment to ongoing negotiations on church union amongst the Anglican Church of Canada, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada, and the United Church of Canada.
4) That the National Executive Council considers that "commitment to a true and lasting union" with the United Church of Canada and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada should be sought from the members of the Anglican Church of Canada and requests General Synod to authorize a referendum to determine the people's position on this question.
2. The process of working for union at the moment does not require rejection of all the work that has been done though we are not content with it, and we are sure that to proceed with revision alone will not take us toward the goal. Far more is required.
3. One thing that is required for the Anglican Church of Canada is to take a referendum to obtain, or to fail to obtain, commitment to the goal of a "true and lasting union" with the United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada with whom we are now negotiating.
4. If that commitment is obtained we would like to negotiate with the other churches a process of agreement by stages, rather than by attempting to produce and gain acceptance in one step of a total plan of union.
5. Agreement by stages might be:
a) By deliberate removal one by one of the restrictions that separate us in such areas as: intercommunion; recognizing each other's ministeries; common membership; organization; episcopacy.
This would mean the deliberate extension of the Lund Principle into faith and order as well as into mission.
b) By improving the present documentation and obtaining agreement section by section in whatever time is required and on the grounds of an increasingly profound understanding of the Christian Faith as the Spirit gives us to perceive it.
6. We believe that working together for union will only have success if it is based on local negotiation and mutual commitment. It is not enough for national committees to arrive at decisions. All levels of church life must be involved in making the decisions which affect them.
Following presentation of the draft message it was noted that the first three motions had been passed by the National Executive Council but no action had been taken on number 4.
Moved by Somerville, seconded by Goodman,
That the National Executive Council considers that commitment to a true and lasting union with the United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada should be sought from the members of the Anglican Church of Canada and requests General Synod to authorize a referendum to determine the people's position on this question.
Amendment
Moved by Brown, seconded by Allan,
That the National Executive Council considers that commitment to the goal of true and lasting union with the United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada should be sought from the members of the Anglican Church of Canada and directs that the members be circularized forthwith to determine their attitude on this question before General Synod, 1975.
The motion as amended was put and CARRIED.
It was AGREED that paragraph 3 be omitted and it was recommended that if the report as a whole is adopted it be sent to the United Church and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada for their consideration and response.
It was recommended that if the members of the Anglican Church of Canada are to be circularized permission would have to be requested from the Bishop of each diocese.
Moved by Shepherd, seconded by Jackson,
That a statement on what is meant by "Union" be incorporated in the document. CARRIED
Moved by Carter, seconded by Watton,
That an addition be made to the document to become #1(5) "That the National Executive Council strongly affirms its commitment to the Lund Principle and that we urge the Anglican Church of Canada to act in accordance with the Principle wherever possible." CARRIED
Moved by Shepherd, seconded by Smith,
That this message be conveyed to the Executives of the partner Churches in the hope that they continue with the Anglican Church of Canada in negotiations. CARRIED
Text
That the document now be accepted as amended and the Task Force be asked to work on the re-wording. CARRIED
Notes
The Task Force subsequently presented the following amended and edited Message:
A MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL OF THE ANGLICAN CHURCH OF CANADA TO THE EXECUTIVES OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH (DISCIPLES OF CHRIST) IN CANADA AND THE UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA
1. The National Executive Council at its meeting on February 6, 1975 has passed the following resolutions:
1) That the National Executive Council affirms that the search for a true and lasting union with the United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada is a primary goal.
2) That the National Executive Council affirms its view that Plan of Union in its present form is not acceptable.
3) That the National Executive Council re-affirms its commitment to ongoing negotiating on Church Union amongst the Anglican Church of Canada, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada and the United Church of Canada.
4) That the National Executive Council considers that commitment to the goalof a true and lasting union with the United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada should be sought from the members of the Anglican Church of Canada and directs that the members be circularized forthwith to determine their attitude on this question before General Synod, 1975.
5) That the National Executive Council strongly affirms its commitment to the Lund Principle and that we urge the Anglican Church of Canada to act in accordance with this Principle wherever possible.
2. If commitment to ongoing negotiations on Church Union is obtained from our Church we propose to negotiate with the other churches a process of agreement by stages rather than by an attempt to produce and gain acceptance in one step for a total Plan of Union.
Our perception of the nature of this Union, and this is by no means a definitive statement, would at this point include:
- One community of Faith and Sacrament, including Ministry
- Mission
- Decision Making
3. This process of working for Union does not require the rejection of all the work done by our churches up to now. In fact, we are deeply grateful for much thought and work and prayer. However, we are convinced that to proceed with the revision of Plan of Union alone will not take us toward the goal. Far more than that is required.
4. By working for agreement by stages we mean undertaking the deliberate (ie. carefully planned) removal one by one of the restrictions that now separate us in such areas as:
- inter-communion
- recognizing each others Ministeries
- common membership
- common organization
- Episcopacy
This would mean the deliberate extension of the Lund Principle into Faith and Order as well as into Mission.

Following the conclusion of the debate on Church Union, the Primate invited the Rev. Dr. Donald Ray, Secretary of the General Council of The United Church of Canada; and the Rev. R. Leland, Executive Minister, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada, to address the Synod.
Dr. Ray, in addressing the Synod, read the following statement:
- "Following the action of General Synod last evening with respect to the reaffirmation of 'its commitment to the Principles of Union, Parts 1, 2 and 3 as a basis for further negotiations with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada, and The United Church of Canada, and other Christian Communions'; and to the achievement of union with these two and other Christian churches; and then to its rejection of the Plan of Union, as being 'not an acceptable basis of union', it may be helpful to set out an initial response.
- This will be quite unofficial of course, since the Executive of the General Council of The United Church is not scheduled to meet until mid-November. Also it should be noted that having so recently been elected I have had no opportunity to express my understanding of our inter-church relationships, nor to receive guidance from the Executive in these and other matters.
- But already there has been a press conference, and expect that from time to time I will be asked to comment on such issues as church union. I have a conviction that our dialogue and inter-change of experience and hopes and fears, should be carried on in our appropriate courts, and that we will talk with each other openly and frankly there, and not use the media to carry our message to one another.
- The United Church is a member of the Committee on Union and Joint Mission. We have declared our willingness to continue with that Committee with negotiated changes in its terms of reference.
- The United Church is in itself an expression of church union. We have not the slightest intention of acting knowingly in any way that will negate the integrity of that expression.
- For whatever we have done, are doing, or may do, that does negate our integrity we pray that God may forgive us.
- I expect that I will continue to express my convictions that in worship and mission we have much that we should be doing 'together in Christ'.
- When you have determined some of the implications of your reaffirmed commitments, and if they involve you with The United Church of Canada we will respond. In every situation where we can engage in worship and mission together I hope it will happen 'together in Christ'.
- Right now we are not interested in playing word games about 'unity' and 'union'.
- May the grace of our Lord be with you !"
Mr. Leland advised that he was not prepared to address Synod at this time.

National Executive Council has received with appreciation the statements from the Board of Directors of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the Inter-Church and Inter-Faith Committee of The United Church of Canada, and has noted the generous offer of the latter body of a moratorium on negotiations toward organic union if the National Executive Council is unable to accept the recommendations of the Committee on Union and Joint Mission.
Within the context of these statements and of the CUJM report, the memorial from the House of Bishops and the resolutions from the Inter-Church Relations Committee, this National Executive Council
Regrets that it cannot accept the recommendations attached to the Message to the Churches from the Committee on Union and Joint Mission, but is mindful of the Act of General Synod 1975 that a continuing committee be established to forward consultations; and,
desiring to facilitate a process of reconciliation within the context of the expressed willingness of The United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) to pursue a search for Christian unity,
Resolves
A.1. That the Anglican Church of Canada withdraw from the Committee on Union and Joint Mission, and accepts the suggestion of a moratorium on negotiations toward Organic Union.
2. That The United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) be asked to consult with representatives of the Anglican Church of Canada with a view to establishing a task force for the purpose of -
a) giving leadership in the understanding and implementation of the Lund Principle
"We would, therefore, earnestly request our Churches to consider whether they are doing all they ought to do to manifest the Oneness of the peoples of God. Should not our Churches ask themselves whether they are showing sufficient eagerness to enter into conversation with other Churches and whether they should not act together in all matters except those in which deep differences of conviction compel them to act separately?"
b) developing a process which will provide for stage-by-stage agreements on matters of Faith, Ministry and Sacraments, having in mind the Faith and Order section of the Principles of Union and the ARCIC statements on the Eucharist and Ministry.
B. That the presently participating Churches be asked to extend a joint invitation to other Christian Churches in Canada to become members of the task force and join in its work which we see designed to search for a deeper sense of unity at the levels of spirituality, personhood and wholeness.
C. That Anglican Church of Canada members of the task force be appointed by the Nominating Committee of the National Executive Council.
D. That the staff of the task force be drawn from the participating Churches.
E. That the task force report to the Church through their Executive bodies and the appropriate Inter-Church Relations committees. CARRIED - 1 against

Prologue
The report was presented by the Very Rev. D. Carter with the assistance of Bishop Crabb, Bishop Short and Dean Cooper.
a) Common Baptismal Certificate
The Certificate of Christian Baptism will be reviewed by the Joint Working Group. Concern was expressed about the wording "with flowing water, by pouring, sprinkling or immersion."
b) Agreed Statements
The Committee wishes to enquire from the National Executive Council whether The United Church of Canada and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Canada have been officially informed of the General Synod 1975 endorsement of the Windsor and Canterbury Statements on Eucharist and Ministry, and if an official statement can be expected from them.
The Doctrine and Worship Committee was assured that the Churches will be informed officially.
c) Initiation
The Doctrine and Worship Committee requests that the Joint Task Force of the House of Bishops and the Doctrine and Worship Committee meet soon and give priority to reconciliation of the divergent elements responsible for the existing situation.
The Doctrine and Worship Committee reminds the Joint Task Force of the initial suggestions put forward by the Committee in 1974 towards a temporary accommodation. These included possible adaption of either the Prayer Book initiation rites or those proposed in 1973, and of the Bishops' Guidelines.
The Doctrine and Worship Committee requests that the Joint Task Force also give consideration to the proposed amendment of Canon 14 referred to the Doctrine and Worship Committee by Act 76 of General Synod, 1975.
Act 76
That a new Section 5 be added:
5.1 The rubric at the end of the Service of Confirmation is deleted.
5.2 The following is inserted as the last rubric prior to the service of Holy Communion:
"All baptized Christians who, with reasonable understanding, reverently and penitently seek to partake of the Holy Communion are entitled to do so."
The Doctrine and Worship Committee recommends that the National Executive Council refers the substance of the Caledonia and Calgary resolutions to the Joint Task Force on Christian Initiation, with the request that it act promptly to bring suitable recommendations to the House of Bishops, to the Doctrine and Worship Committee, and (if possible) to the General Synod 1977.
