Today has been a long day as over 100 people spoke either for or against the draft measure re women bishops . In the end the laity were not convinced about the proposals before synod and it was they who defeated the motion.
There will obviously be deep hurt on the side of those who wished this to proceed.
A signal has been sent saying that a formal and legal place must be accorded to those parishes who will need the provision of a male bishop who himself has been consecrated by male bishops only.
We don’t know what may be brought back to the Synod. However we continue to proclaim the gospel of God’s love for all.
