"[By] John A.T. Robinson".
"First published 1970 by SCM Press Ltd".
Includes bibliographical references.
"Ever since it served as a chapter heading in 'Honest to God' 'the new morality' has been a household phrase. For most people it suggests permissiveness -- or worse. But Dr. Robinson was pleading for a criterion of response and responsibility far more searching than that of code morality, as his subsequent lectures 'Christian Morals Today' made clear. These lectures are reprinted in this book, which will take its place alongside his earlier essays 'On Being the Church in the World', now available a Pelican. The theme running through this new collection is the meaning of authentic Christian freedom in relation to the moral and political issues of our contemporary society and to the thinking and structures of the Church". -- back cover.

"I had the bad luck to finish the original draft of this pamphlet the very day the Open Letter to the Archbishops from the Thirty-Two Theologians appeared [November 1961]" (p. 1). .... "I therefore find the recent editorial suggestion of 'The Church Times' of 'an invitation to all baptised and communicant Christians of good standing in their own Churches to come, when they so desire, to receive the Holy Communion in their parish Church' rather shocking. I am not often more rigorist than 'The Church Times'. But I believe this proposal reveals a much lower doctrine of the Church than that of the Open Letter. It also discloses in a particularly instructive way the Anglican tendency to assume that as long as there is an episcopally ordained celebrant no other theological issue matters very much" (p. 7). .... "In fact one must, I think, say that if, and at the point at which intercommunion is ever justified short of union, reciprocal intercommunion is also justified. If we are regarding ourselves and each other as self-sufficient coexistent denominations, content to continue living and working side by side, then intercommunion merely deepens our guilt. But if we are seeking to live by the same unity which we know we do not possess but which we believe Christ has the power to make of us, then our 'locus standi' is utterly different. Intercommunion is then the great sacrament of justification by faith, the pledge of our new being in Christ, and all that is required for it is the trust that grace does indeed meet us through each of our sacraments however defective" (p. 11-12).

[Permission from Anglican Church of Canada Bishops for Members of Other Christian Churches to Receive Holy Communion in the Anglican Church]

Text
Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada have agreed to permit members of other Christian Churches to receive Holy Communion in the Anglican Church.
The House of Bishops meeting this week in Toronto has broadened the guidelines laid down by Bishops following action at General Synod in Sudbury in 1969 which requested the diocesan bishops to permit Anglicans and members of other Christian Churches to share in Eucharistic practice with the full knowledge and consent of the proper authorities.
This permission to communicate will not, by itself, constitute membership in the Anglican Church, regulations for which are established by the various dioceses.
Announcing these revised guidelines Archbishop E.W. Scott, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada and Chairman of the House of Bishops, stated that "the House of Bishops agrees that communicants of other Christian Churches who have been baptised with water in the Name of the Holy Trinity are welcome, if they so desire, to receive Holy Communion in Anglican Churches." The bishops also agreed that members of the Anglican Church may, in accordance with their conscience, receive Holy Communion in non-Anglican Churches where they are welcomed.
Similar action was taken recently by the Church of England

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND
Canon B. 15 A
Of the Admission to Holy Communion
1. There shall be admitted to the Holy Communion:

(b) Baptized persons who are communicant members of other Churches which subscribe to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, and who are in good standing in their own Church;
(c) Any other baptized person authorized to be admitted under regulations of the General Synod; and
(d) Any baptized person in immediate danger of death.
2. If any person by virtue of sub-paragraph (b) above regularly received the Holy Communion over a long period which appears likely to continue indefinitely, the minister shall set before him the normal requirements of the Church of England for communicant status in that Church.
3. Where any minister is in doubt as to the application of this Canon, he shall refer the matter to the Bishop of the Diocese or other Ordinary and follow his guidance thereon.

Prologue
The Primate introduced a letter from the General Secretary of General Synod containing a motion passed at the recent meeting of the National Executive Council.
"Be it resolved that:
The National Executive Council ask the House of Bishops to issue a statement:
1. enabling the local bishop to authorize ministers of other denominations to act as his representatives in matters pastoral and sacramental. (This was dealt with under Section (xlvi) Recognition of Ministers).
2. allowing Anglicans according to their own conscience, to receive the sacramental ministrations of other Christian traditions."
The House broke into groups for discussion on the second request and re-assembled at 10:15 a.m. Group reports were presented and after some discussion it was decided to withhold any action until a copy of the new Canon promulgated by the Church of England on this subject was available. The topic was resumed on Wednesday afternoon and the following motions were put to the House.

"That an editorial committee be appointed by the House to deal with the reports from the groups and the English Canon." CARRIED
