Now it really is decision time for all of us

The BBC Radio 4 news has just announced that the Church of England's General Synod has "narrowly rejected" the Archbishops' proposals.
It's not really a surprise, given the ugly mood of past synodical debates on this issue, but it does now call into serious question the ability of both Archbishops to lead their Church. It always has been a persuasive authority but they have clearly, if "narrowly," failed to persuade.
More when further details emerge; this is the Press Association report.


  1. Rejected by the House of Clergy as I understand it. It's going to be the Mothers Union with ritual the way things are going. God help us!

  2. I think we're more than half way there already, only I'm not that sure about the ritual!

  3. Does this now make the role of ABC redundant? If he cannot command obedience or respect from his fellow clergy, what else is there left?
