Andrew Brown’s article reinforces why there need to be major changes to the General And Diocesan Synods and the way the House of Laity in both are elected. It is no longer acceptable, if it ever was, that these Houses should be dominated by the ‘old and the fanatical’ to use Andrew Brown’s words in a previous article. Synod must much more accurately reflect the church at large and not the activist and passionate few. When it does we might start avoiding these damaging and divisive debates when ever there is a need for change.
