C of E General Synod

The Church of England's General Synod begins its three day session tomorrow in London. Given its politicised agenda and the proliferation of self-serving advice on offer [see here] it's not surprising the provinces of Canterbury and York (they are not alone in this) give the impression of suffering from a collective nervous breakdown. 
Synods - in the contemporary rather than the historic sense -  notwithstanding (and someone will have to stand before the judgement seat of God and account for their intrusion into the life of the Church) our day-to-day work - the offering of the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving, the pastoral care of those in need - reality, in other words - goes on .... under the circumstances, clear proof of the grace and mercy of God in the face of the absurdities of our fallen human nature...
