Resolution Number: 1991-B020
Title: Propose a Pan-Anglican and Ecumenical Dialogue on Human Sexuality
Legislative Action Taken: Concurred
Final Text:

Resolved, That this Church receive the report of the Standing Committee on Human Affairs as clear evidence of no strong consensus in this Church on the human sexuality issues considered or the resolutions proposed; and be it further

Resolved, That the Office of the Presiding Bishop now be directed to propose to all provinces of the Anglican Communion and all churches with whom we are in ecumenical dialogue that a broad process of consultation be initiated on an official pan-Anglican and ecumenical level as a bold step forward in the consideration of these potentially divisive issues which should not be resolved by the Episcopal Church on its own.
