Prologue
Bishop Short, David Carter and Bishop Berry presented the report of the Doctrine and Worship Committee.
Bishop Short, in reviewing the report, made special note of the service entitled "The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage" which will be presented to General Synod for approval and publication. It is hoped that a Eucharistic Liturgy will be ready for use and presentation to the 1979/1980 General Synod.
Bishop Short mentioned that the idea of a new Prayer Book for Canada has been discussed at the last meeting of the Doctrine and Worship Committee but stated that no action had been taken. After a brief discussion Bishop Berry gave notice of motion to come later in the meeting.
It was noted that the booklet "Christian Initiation" did not readily identify its sponsors and a request was made that this be corrected.
David Holeton of Vancouver has been working with the Rev. W. Crockett on a revised three-year cycle Lectionary. It was requested that a check be made to see that the Old Testament is properly covered and possibly a section be inserted for family prayer.

Notes
The author reflects on the reality that Anglicans are divided by the hymn and prayer books they use (and do not use). "Perhaps we could create a new prayer book structured like a hymnbook. It would contain all the prayers for the Communion service taken from all the approved sources .... And all these prayers would be numbered, just like the hymns in a hymnbook, to enable us to assemble them as we wish. What a treasure house. There would be something for everybody, as opposed to the present politicized system where the winner takes all". This "new book of worship for Holy Communion ... would be called the BAP (Book of Alternative Prayers). Its cover would be brown (a mixture of red and green) and it would be used by the whole community for the single Sunday morning service, starting at 10:15 a.m."
The author "is a Toronto architect and liturgical consultant".

Notes
"[By] Patricia Bays".
"This book is based on two sets of addresses: the Martin Memorial lectures entitled `The Compass Rose : Flowering of Fading ?', given at the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad in Saskatoon in May 1999, and three addresses on the theme 'Composing the Lord's Song', given at the diocese of Calgary's `Theology Alive' weekend in October 1999". -- Acknowledgements, p. 7.
"I believe that Anglicanism is characterized by a distinctive way of doing theology. And I believe that a tolerance for diversity is an integral part of being Anglican. So I believe that our current struggles and debates are essential to being who we are, and I am hopeful that our diversity will strengthen us as we respond to God's call to be part of the church, the body of Christ. In `Anglican Diversity', I will articulate a foundation for this belief, then explore how such an Anglican identity can help us to respond to the challenges of the twenty-first century". -- Intro., p. 10.
Includes bibliographical references and bibliography, pp. 126-128.

A Thesis submitted to Boston University School of Theology in partial fulfillment of the requirement for the degree of Doctor of Theology 2000.
Bibliography: p. 270-286.
"Confronted by questions of relevance and identity, the Anglican Church of Canada initiated a process of liturgical revision in 1985. The dissertation argues that, at the end of this process with the publication of the Book of Alternative Services in 1985, the Anglican Church of Canada had both a reconstituted liturgical text and a transformed definition of church. The dissertation builds on scholarly investigations, and it bridges the pastoral and scholarly gap in the historical development of the Anglican Church of Canada. To date no other study has attempted to close this gap by examining the Book of Alternative Services." "The dissertation set out to determine whether or not the Book of Alternative Services was 'tinkering with Cranmer' or whether the book reflected a distinctiveness in the continuing liturgical tradition of the Anglican Church of Canada. The latter has been confirmed by demonstration. Further study may well want to focus upon the integration of the Book of Alternative Services into the church's life and its impact upon the church's understanding of ordained ministry and church architecture". -- Abstract.
