Resolutions from 1908

Resolution 63

The Conference would welcome any steps that might be taken to acertain the precise doctrinal position of the ancient separate Churches of the East with a view to possible intercommunion, and would suggest to the Archbishop of Canterbury the appointment of commissions to examine the doctrinal position of particular Churches, and (for example) to prepare some carefully framed statement of the faith as to our Lord's person, in the simplest possible terms, which should be submitted to each of such Churches, where feasible, in order to ascertain whether it represents their belief with substantial accuracy. The conclusions of such commissions should in our opinion be submitted to the metropolitans or presiding bishops of all the Churches of the Anglican Communion.
