Comments: General Synod July Outline Agenda published

When do Rowan Williams and John Sentamu take a bathroom break to make bishops?
And make grownups cry-I'd make a special trip to see that!

The meeting of the house of clergy will discuss, I believe, the formation of a professional association of church of england clergy. This promises to be a quiet revolution: no red flags flying, no political agenda, no buying-in to any perceived trade union agenda, but an opportunity for clergy to set aside their differences and to counter the juridical nature of the clergy discipline measure and the terms of service through an association of very different minded clergy.

Watch that space.

What, I wonder, do the two Primates of the Church of England have up their capacious chimere sleeves for this gathering of Laity, Clergy and Bishops? What are they ready to veto on this occasion.

Is the matter of Women Bishops to be gotten over in a hurry, behind the scenes or in the gentlemen's toilets? Or will it simply not be discussed?
