Comments: General Synod - Friday's business

Part a) of the motion "give thanks, nonetheless, for" - has the Synod just passed a somewhat grudging vote of thanks to God?

Will this approach enter the liturgy. Dearly beloved, I propose a vote of thanks to Almighty God for His inestimable blessings in ... followed by a show of hands?

What a wet-noodle motion. Why waste 2 hours of Synod's time on it? It's pap.

Was this entire exercise designed to give the Archbishop of York some time in a favorable spotlight?

Is that fair to the rest of Synod?

I so agree, Jeremy. Once again the CofE tries to show it has its finger on the button, and fails miserably. All those words, and so little content, and nobody outside the Synod chamber cares.
