It’s raining but the forecast is better – that the sun will emerge – and I hope that that is what lies before the Synod as we meet on this final day.
The main topic is women in the episcopate and that will be the item we talk about after the Synod Eucharist. Radio 4 was saying this morning that the signs are good as we move ahead together to see women in every order of ministry. My prayer is that that will be the case.
So please pray for the meeting of the Synod as we pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This the prayer that will be used at the preparation of the table in the Eucharist.
Father, by your Holy Spirit
you keep the Church in unity and truth.
As we break bread together,
may we be one with Christ
in faith and hope and love,
now and for ever.
