Comments: Worcester Diocesan Synod and the bishops' amendment

It's catching.

The diocesan synods seem to be realsing that their views count, that they can make their views known and be heard !

They do not need to accept the BBS* any longer ! I wonder if the general synod will show similar resourcefulness, integrity, and authority - it may take more courage ! Standing up to bullies is scary but can be effective - how they fall. But hey it's worth it !

* Bishops' / Bishop's BS

* delete as appropriate

If only the laity and all ministers had spoken out over Jeffrey John incident and supported Richard Harries, and the principle of diocesans choosing their suffragans for themselves. If only they't stood up to Carey. Never too late to act with courage and integrity.

Btw I hope this gets through - some of mine seem to have been gobbled-up in the gubbins !
