That the words "This action implies no change in the doctrine expressed in Article 5 of the Thirty-Nine Articles contained in the Book of Common Prayer.", be added at the end of the motion. CARRIED
The motion now reads:
"That Synod notes with approval that the new Third Canadian Eucharist omits the filioque clause in the Nicene Creed, thus restoring the original text: we understand this action to be in response to the Lambeth Conference Resolution 35, part 3, and made at the request of the Eastern Orthodox Churches. We express the hope that all future revisions of Canadian Anglican liturgies follow this example, while leaving present formularies intact. This action implies no change in the doctrine expressed in Article 5 of the Thirty-Nine Articles contained in the Book of Common Prayer.
Since the termination of Project North in 1987, further evaluation and consultation between the churches in Canada has led to a new coalition on aboriginal justice concerns. This is the result of discussion between the churches, network groups, and native organizations. It shifts the focus of the former Project North to include justice issues for native people all over Canada and is based upon the church leaders' recent statement: "A New Covenant".
That this National Executive Council support and participate fully in the new coalition: Project North - Ecumenical Coalition for Aboriginal Justice; and request the Program Committee to appoint two representatives from the Anglican Church of Canada to its Steering Committee. CARRIED #54-11-88
