"At this meeting, the Standing Commission evaluated work done in the period 1999-2001; gave advice on a number of studies which are at critical points of development concerning their methodology and content; received reports on plans for major consultations; and examined the work done in assisting various constituencies in the ecumenical movement as they seek to forge stronger links or move towards unity. Throughout, the discussions were permeated by Bishop Brent's call to `look on things as though they were our very own'. In Gazzada, plans were also furthered for the meeting of the Plenary Commission in Malaysia in 2004. Particular attention was paid to the context of the meeting through a series of presentations on Christian-Muslim relations". -- Preface, p. .
