Prologue
Bishop Short, David Carter and Bishop Berry presented the report of the Doctrine and Worship Committee.
Bishop Short, in reviewing the report, made special note of the service entitled "The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage" which will be presented to General Synod for approval and publication. It is hoped that a Eucharistic Liturgy will be ready for use and presentation to the 1979/1980 General Synod.
Bishop Short mentioned that the idea of a new Prayer Book for Canada has been discussed at the last meeting of the Doctrine and Worship Committee but stated that no action had been taken. After a brief discussion Bishop Berry gave notice of motion to come later in the meeting.
It was noted that the booklet "Christian Initiation" did not readily identify its sponsors and a request was made that this be corrected.
David Holeton of Vancouver has been working with the Rev. W. Crockett on a revised three-year cycle Lectionary. It was requested that a check be made to see that the Old Testament is properly covered and possibly a section be inserted for family prayer.

Notes
This entire issue, which is inset into vol. 9 no. 4 (Pentecost 2003) is here presented as "a theological contribution to The Baptism Project, LC's [i.e. Liturgy Canada's] attempt to foster dialogue about the process of Christian Initiation. Dr. Holeton offers an extensive and, we believe, very important historical account of Fr. Fairweather's significant contribution both the BAS and, even more importantly, to a renewed understanding of the theologically necessary link between Baptism and Eucharistic fellowship." -- From Editorial by John Hodgins to vol. 9 no. 4 (Pentecost 2003), p. 3.
"Eugene Fairweather's contributions to the work of the national Doctrine and Worship Committee (D&W) and to the Book of Alternative Services (BAS) lay primarily in two areas: unmuddling the impasse between the House of Bishops (HoB) and D&W in the work towards new rites of Christian Initiation and drafting the rites of Ordination" (p. 1).
The article is a concise and penetrating analysis of the development of the "new" theology of baptism and Christian initiation (including the issue of admission to Communion) which took place in Canada between 1969 and 1985. It focuses on the controversy and conflict between the Doctrine and Worship Committee (and its sub-committees and task forces) and the House of Bishops. Fairweather's pastoral, political and theological contributions are described, especially his crucial report delivered to the October 1981 [* See paragraph below] meeting of the Joint Task Force on Christian Initiation entitled "Christian Initiation : our Present Situation" which included "A Modest Proposal" and set out seven key principles about baptism and Christian initiation.
*N.B. A typo, two thirds of the way down the second column on page 4, says October 1982 instead of 1981. Footnotes 12-14 on page 8 confirm that the report was in fact presented in October 1981
