Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry Document

Movers Cameron, E.D.

That the Response to the Baptism, Eucharist and ministry Document as reported to this General Synod be adopted as the official response of this Church, and that it be forwarded to the World Council of Churches Faith and Order Commission, with notification to the Anglican Consultative Council, and that the Faith and Order Commission be further asked to explore fully:

i) What is the relationship between Scripture, tradition and context in determining apostolic faith and practice?

ii) In what ways is the Holy Spirit at work in creation (i.e. In the physical world) and what role dos our material
life, sacraments and the Holy Spirit play in the consummation of the Kingdom?

iii) Given the central connection in the New Testament between Christ’s death and the Eucharist, how does the
Cross relate to/qualify all the other concerns brought into the discussion of the Eucharist? (The same question would apply to Baptism.)
