Resolution
Text
2. That since the discussions in the Conferences showed the existence of much dissatisfaction with regard to certain hymns in the Book of Common Praise as being insufficient to express the spiritual aspirations of many worshippers, with an equally strong desire for the use of new hymns not included in that book - particularly in the children's section of it - the General Synod be urged to take the steps needed to meet this situation. CARRIED in both Houses.

Notes
"The synod of the diocese of the Arctic, meeting in Iqaluit, Nunavut from May 27 to June 3 [2008], passed a motion criticizing decisions by four dioceses of the Anglican Church of Canada that support blessing same-sex unions". "It also passed a motion expressing 'strong support .. for those in the Southern Cone dioceses, recognizing them as members of the Anglican Communion'." 'In an interview Bishop Atagotaaluk said the decision by the synods of the dioceses of Ottawa, Montreal, Niagara and Huron to ask their bishops to give clergy permission to bless homosexual marriages 'kind of let us down from trusting that we had a process that everybody can work with'. He added that since the 2007 General Synod defeated the motion affirming the authority of dioceses to offer same-sex blessings, 'there was no message saying that we could all go our own way'." "'We have serious housing issues -- we used to provide housing for clergy and they're all aging and needing to be replaced or renovated and there are no funds available for that kind of work', [Bishop Atagotaaluk] said". "During the synod a draft of the new English/Inuktitut hymnbook, 'Voices of Worship', was distributed to delegates and used for the duration of the meeting".
