Prologue
Discussion took place about the re-examination of the statement on the common cup (this was due to a concern expressed because of the spread of AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis "B" in society today).
Some members suggested that a new statement would risk sending an unintentioned message to the constituency. It was agreed that TB is of growing concern and would warrant a re-investigation about the tradition of the common cup. However, AIDS is not (a concern), and any new statement would have to be clear about the distinction. It was agreed that the national Doctrine and Worship Committee together with the library would be requested to prepare a summary of contemporary material for the House of Bishops for its consideration.
