Diocesan Synod

We had our Diocesan Synod in the Cathedral on Saturday. Like other dioceses, we are trying to make this meeting more engaged and engaging – seating people at round tables to try and get away from the rigidity of straight lines. We also turned over the afternoon session to Holy Conversation – known in some other traditions as Conversation on the Work of God.

It was a good day – a good day made better by the encouragement of seeing our newly appointed clergy taking their place in diocesan life.

I had prepared three pieces of material

A Sermon for the Eucharist
A Presidential Address
Introduction to Holy Conversation
