Prologue
Dean Peter Wall presented the report and spoke to the proposed theme for General Synod. He said that the committee had received replies on the proposed theme from the Standing Committees, Councils and Boards. As a result the original theme "Draw the Circle Wide" has been expanded to "Draw the Circle Wide ... Draw it Wider Still". Dean Wall said that the Planning Committee believes that the theme speaks of the inclusivity of our church -- inclusive of all people and all perspective and points of view. The open circle, envisioned in graphics, supports the idea that all is not yet revealed; that all are not yet part of our circle; and that we are opening and welcoming.
General Synod will meet from June 19-25, 2007 in Winnipeg, MB. The committee is in final negotiations with two downtown hotels, as the University of Manitoba, could no longer guarantee the required number of bedrooms.
