Text
That this Twenty-Third Session of the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada expresses its thanks to Anglicans in all parts of Canada for generous support of the Bible Society, and earnestly requests all Anglican people in our country,
1. To read the Holy Scriptures more frequently, both in personal and family devotions.
2. To support the work of the Bible Society more effectively by joining existing branches of the Bible Society, or by assisting in the organizing of new Parish or Community branches where needed.
3. To greatly increase their support of the Bible Society in 1967, in 1968, and in future years because of the growing literacy, and because of the great need for God's love and for God's peace in the world at this time. CARRIED in both Houses.

Notes
"Delegates saluted the first Inuktitut translation of the Bible, begun in 1978 and published last year [2012]. Canon Jonas Allooloo, dean of St. Jude's Cathedral in Iqaluit, was one of four translators, along with Bishops Benjamin Arreak and Andrew Atagotaaluk and the Rev. Joshua Arreak, who worked with the translators at the Canadian Bible Society. All four speak fluent Inuktitut as their mother tongue. While outsiders may learn the language, Allooloo said, 'It is very hard for them to think like Inuit'. He urged other indigenous peoples to translate the Bible into their languages".
