Comments: February General Synod - outline timetable

Thinking about Church business, I see that at long last Lord Carlile's report on the handling of the Bishop Bell case will be published later today. In anticipation of the imminent publication of the report a statement has been issued which claims that there was "inadequate attention to the rights of those who are dead"
Does this mean that Bishop Bell's good name and reputation will now be restored and that those institutions which have airbrushed his name will now make reparation and reinstatement?

Another "take note debate," eh?

Synod beware!

What is presented beforehand as "only a take note" motion is often described afterwards as substantive endorsement of what the report "taken note of" says.
