Resolution 71

The Unity of the Church - The Churches of Latvia and Estonia

The Conference receives the Report of conferences between representatives appointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury on behalf of the Church of England and representatives of the Evangelical Lutheran Churches of Latvia and Estonia in 1936 and 1938, published in 1938. It records its sympathy and offers its prayers for these Churches, may of whose clergy and laity are now scattered abroad, having no home or possessions of their own, and having suffered grievous hardship. It recommends that Anglicans should give all material and spiritual help possible to these unhappy exiles, and looks forward to the day when it will be possible, after full agreement in faith and order, to advance further the relations between the Anglican Communion and these Churches in conditions of mutual confidence and understanding.
