moved by: The Rev. Iain Luke from the Diocese of Rupert's Land
Note: The mover and the seconder must be members of the General Synod and be present in the House when the resolution is before the synod for debate.
BE IT RESOLVED:
That Second Reading be given to the following Canon:
RECEPTION AND RECOGNITION OF CLERGY FROM CHURCHES IN FULL COMMUNION WITH THE ANGLICAN CHURCH OF CANADA
EXPLANATORY NOTE/BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
The proposed Canon was prepared in 1998 by a Task Force that the Faith, Worship and Ministry requested to consider whether a Canon was required for the recognition and reception of clergy from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. The Canon would apply not just to clergy from the ELCIC but to clergy of any church with which The Anglican Church of Canada is in full communion. The Canon was given first reading at the General Synod of 1998 and is presented for second and final reading. In accordance with the Declaration of principles the proposed Canon was referred to dioceses and ecclesiastical provinces for consideration.
