Assembly accepts official history of PCC.

Enduring Witness by John S. Moir was recognized by the assembly as the official history of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Moderator Richard Fee thanked Donald MacLeod, convener of the Committee on History, for its work on the book's production.

Assembly also adopted the recommendation that all Church courts and congregations be strongly encouraged to put their official records on microfilm and place them in the church Archives. "We all know the maxim, those who do not remember their history are doomed to repeat it," said the Moderator. "This is a historic moment. There is now an official history of our church ... for future generations to read."
