"The Standing Commission held its 1990 meeting from 16-17 August at the Scottish Churches' House in Dunblane, Scotland. It was the last meeting during the working period between the Assemblies of the World Council of Churches at Vancouver in 1983 and at Canberra in 1991. This clearly marked the meeting which was striving to bring the main study projects to a -- preliminary -- conclusion and, in fact, succeeded in doing so. At the same time the Commission looked to the future by suggesting ways and means for the transmission and follow-up of the results of the study projects and by developing initial plans for the Faith and Order World Conference in 1993. These Minutes reflect the results of the heavy agenda at Dunblane with its combination of 'harvesting and sowing'." -- Preface.
