I wonder if this Zoom session of the General Synod will be as lively and as entertaining as a Handforth Parish Council meeting?

Where is the Lament, Anger, Frustration, Despair which are echoed through the prophets, Lent and Holy Week, through the Psalms and through my experience – the journey towards hope and salvation surely passes through the valley of the shadow of death …

No time for questions, I see. Is ‘informal’ the new ‘tightly stage-managed’?

The graveyard slot after lunch would have been enlivened by the Wales v England game, but for the fact that kick-off is 1645hrs!
