Resolved that General Synod confirm the adoption or changes made by the Council of General Synod to the terms of reference of standing committees:
1. Communications and Information Resources Committee—terms of reference approved by COGS in May 2008, inadvertently not referred to General Synod 2010, referred by COGS in November 2010 to the current Handbook Concerns Committee for action at General Synod 2013 (as contained at page 136 in Appendix B in the current Handbook).
2. Communications and Information Resources Committee—references to “the Anglican Journal Board” in paragraphs 1 e) and 2 b) changed to “the Anglican Journal Committee” by COGS in May 2012.
3. Philanthropy Committee—terms of reference approved by COGS in November 2010 (as contained at page 138 in Appendix B in the current Handbook, with additional changes noted in #4 and #5 below.)

5. Resources for Mission Committee—change in the first item in the terms of reference to read: “a) Develop and continue to update a theology of stewardship for the church.” —approved by COGS in November 2012.
6. Anglican Journal—adoption of terms of reference for the new Anglican Journal Committee (to be included as part 7 in Appendix B of the Handbook) and removal of the terms of reference for the former Anglican Journal Corporation (Appendix C in the Handbook)—approved by COGS in November 2011:

Dear Jim,
As I mentioned at the recent House of Bishops meeting, I wish to [make] a formal request to the Council of General Synod to consider adjusting the Rules of Order around resolutions during meetings of General Synod. Without any initiation on my part, the following resolution was carried at our Diocesan Synod, which met Nov. 11-13, 2004.
- MOTION: That Section 3(r) of the Rules of Order be amended by adding the following at the end thereof:
- Before putting the question to a motion to close debate, the Chair shall ask if any of the persons who are then in line to speak to the pending motion has an amendment or motion to propose. Any person in line to speak, who has an amendment to propose, shall be entitled to state to Synod the text of such amendment or motion. No debate is permitted; however, questions and answers for clarification purposes may be permitted by the Chair.
This resolution arose form the experience of the final amendment (Clause 5) to resolution A134 at General synod pertaining to Same-Sex Unions (the clause that mentioned 'integrity and sanctity'.)
To recap briefly, on the Thurs. morning at General Synod, when this section was dealt with, there was lots of informal conversation, prior to the session beginning, about suggesting slightly different wording, in the form of amendments that would find a greater consensus on the floor of Synod. Because of our present Rules of Order, when a motion was made to 'call the question', there was no debate permitted, nor were the delegates of Synod able to inquire as to whether there were "better options" waiting to be put as amendments in the hands of delegates still waiting at microphones to speak. I am convinced that, as a result, we did not make the best decision that the Synod could have made, and I think this has been borne out [by] the subsequent confusion throughout the Anglican Communion as to what was really meant by the wording of Clause 5. I believe we were "let off lightly" by the Windsor Report -- probably because they understood the predicament we were in.
While the Council of General Synod might want to construct their own method to achieve the necessary result, I am formally requesting that the Council consider amending the Rules so that the members of General Synod at least get a chance to hear the wording of amendments already prepared before they are required to vote on a motion "to call the question."
Thank you for considering this issue.
Yours in Christ,
+Donald Phillips, Bishop
