"This, then is our desert:
to live facing despair,
but not to consent.
To trample it down under hope in the Cross.
To wage war against despair unceasingly.
That war is our wilderness.
If we wage it courageously,
we will find Christ at our side.
If we cannot face it,
we will never find him."

Rejected by the House of Laity
A two-thirds majority was not achieved - 132 to 74
A vote for sanity and fairness.
Now for some prayerful listening on all sides
