We make a decision

It has been an amazing morning in Synod. So much has been said that is so positive. It really feels as though we’re in a different land, breathing different air.

We’ve heard Fr Houlding, Rod Thomas and Christina Rees speaking in almost agreement; people saying this can work. It is so encouraging.

The Prolocutor of Canterbury, Christine Hardman, said she would eat humble pie in that she thought Bishop Pete Broadbent’s suggestion in July was wrong. She and I have been proved wrong – it was so creative. So I’m looking forward to the pie!

The Chair of the Synod said at the beginning that the vote would be a division of the whole Synod. The result was:

For 378
Against 8
Abstentions 25

Now we can move forward.

Lord of the journey,
lead us and guide us
as we move on
as your people.
Amen.
