The return home from General Synod that is, although there are some similarities between General Synod and a film sequel. The cast are pretty familiar – even if some have taken on new roles – with a smattering of new faces; the plot while slightly different is recognisable enough for one to make a reasonably good guess at who will say or do what; and just as some sequels in the movies are better than others, so are some Synods.
This year was a good year, despite some concerns to the contrary no blood split on the carpet, well none that I saw any way.
There is one thing that we can always rely on, and that is the weather. Regardless of where the Synod is held (this year it was Edinburgh) the days while we are all stuck in a building are sunny and warm. I wonder what God is trying to tell us.
