Call Upon Members to Exercise a Responsible Life Style

Resolved, the House of Bishops concurring,
That the 66th General Convention calls every Member of this Church to exercise a responsible life style based on real personal needs commensurate with a world of limited resources by:

  2. Altering our own eating and consumption habits;
  3. Planning family size in a responsible manner;

and be it further

Resolved, That the General Convention commends to every Member of this Church the spiritual resources of prayer and meditation and pastoral support as persons encounter the tensions of a changing life style, and be it further

Resolved, That this Convention calls on the several Committees, Commissions, and Agencies of this Church to exercise a responsible life style in planning the meetings and conferences to be held.
