That the General Synod supports the process of reconciliation which has recently been initiated in Australia and calls upon all Anglicans and Anglican Agencies, to support initiatives and to take initiatives on their own account in their own areas, which will forward the process of reconciliation between Indigenous people and others in the community.

That this General Synod supports the vision for reconciliation identified by the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation and calls upon all Australians to support energetic steps to move towards this goal.

“A united Australia which respects this land of ours; values the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage; and provides justice and equity for all.”

[Bishop B.W. Wilson – 19-2-98]
