Prologue
Archbishop Nutter reported that the Primate wrote to the Archbishop of Canterbury, as requested at the November meeting of the House, and received a response to his letter from Canon S. Van Culin's response were distributed to the Bishops.
According to the formula outlined by Canon Van Culin, as developed at the March 1986 meeting of Primates, the Canadian Church is entitled to send three Suffragan Bishops. No provision is being made for the attendance of the wives of Suffragan Bishops at the Lambeth Conference.
The Metropolitans identified various methods of indicating the Suffragan Bishops who should be invited to attend from the Canadian Church. It was agreed that seniority should be the defining factor, but that no more than one Bishop should attend from the same Diocese. If any Suffragan is unable to go because of illness, or chooses not to go, the next senior Suffragan Bishop should take his place. The Metropolitans agreed that this proposal should be placed before the Bishops for their consideration.
Text
That the three Suffragan Bishops senior by Consecration be those designated to attend the Lambeth Conference in 1988, and that if any of those thus indicated are unable to attend, the next senior Suffragan Bishop shall take his place, with not more than one attending from any diocese. CARRIED

Notes
"[By] Eileen Carey with Andrew Carey".
"It was while travelling around the Anglican communion and meeting the spouses of many bishops that the urge to 'tell their story' gripped me. Their role in each province is so different, and that governs largely how it is expressed". "Each contributor had the same questionnaire to answer .... These stories were compiled from the returned questionnaires. Some of them were very full of information and others, mainly due to language difficulties, quite sparse. I have not put in anything that was not included by the contributor, althought in the cases of some of those I knew well I would have loved to !" "This book is dedicated to the memory of Susie Chang Him. She died of cancer before she could write her contribution, and her husband and twin girls did it some months after her death. It is included as the Postscript in the book". -- Preface.

Notes
The author, who is the wife of the Most Rev. Frank Griswold, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church since January 1998, spoke on the topic of "The Spirituality of Bishop's Spouses". Speaking of her decisions to change the wording of her original topic from "spirituality" to "theology", the author explains: "Anglicans understand that, along with Scripture and tradition, experience is a fundamental resource for `doing' theology. Much of the Bible, after all is an account of peoples' lives. Our biblical ancestors lived by their knowing or yearning to know the living God; they also told their stories. Can we dare to do the same thing ? In particular, can we speak to each other about our lives as bishops' spouses, about their unique and common identities, and then shape our theological reflections from those perspectives ? ... I would like to suggest that we give back to the Church our own theological reflections learned through the scriptures of our own lives." (p. 17) Contains a number of very thoughtful "provisional and incomplete" "observations about the common life of bishops' spouses" including: "We are am extraordinarily hard-working group who take our vows seriously -- both our baptismal and marriage vows. ..We know the feelings of isolation and loneliness that come from the solitary nature of our unique position within the community. ...We know the difficulty of making a life with an authority that has been derived from our spouses, but which must be eventually earned by us. .... Theological reflection on the nature of God based on our common experience leads me to believe that God is to be found through relationship".

Notes
"The 1998 Lambeth Conference included -- for the first time -- a separately planned spouses' programme". The four central themes of the Spouses' Conference were: the Role of the Bishop's Spouse, Mission and Evangelism, Social Issues (definitely social responsibility rather than tea and cucumber sandwiches) and the Anglican Communion." The program was available to 639 bishops' spouses including 5 husbands, among them Ian Jamieson who was a speaker. Also included Marion McCall, wife of David McCall the Bishop of Willochra, in Australia, a licensed pilot.

At the invitation of Mrs. Jane Williams, the members of the 2008 Lambeth Spouses' Conference Planning Group, met in London, in November 2006. "We have identified our overall theme as God's people for God's mission and, with reflection and discussion, have identified four major issues we need to consider: what it means to be a bishop's spouse; the challenges placed on us for leadership responsibilities; the support of family life; [and] prayer and spirituality."
