Comments: General Synod - reports on day three

Justin Brett seems to have covered the debate on Women and The Espicopate quite well. At least, the measure was not turned down - in fact, it was significantly approved by a 2/3 majority. Now that we all have to wait another year to see what the Revision Committee can come up with, it still needs a good deal of discussion, prayer and thought - not only among the members of General Synod but also in the general constituency of Church membership.

Most people outside of the Church can hardly understand what the fuss is all about. They have accepted the leadership of women now for a generation at least.

Whatever either side thinks about this legislation, we can at least move forward with the principle of women being an important part of the Body of Christ - in leadership, as well as merely discipleship. Deo Gratias!

Most of those inside the church also fail to understand all the fuss --but then they don't sit on synods and stuff.
