To synod or not? — 2 Comments

  1. Oh dear! I am sure there is nothing bad about the synod in itself, the problems arise when the only important thing about church is the synod. Or the PCC meeting, or whatever.

    But then we often measure church effectiveness by the number of meetings it has and/or we attend. Which is pretty daft really.

  2. Joe,

    I think I would have questions about the nature of Synod. It is a parliamentary system and conducts adversarial debates – proposers and opponents of bills, etc. It is about the exercise of power. I wonder if it is an appropriate way of doing business for people who claim to belong to the Kingdom of God.

    (I was a member once, but got thrown off!)
