It is Diocesan Synod today, it often falls in Lent and I often think how apt.
Lent, time to have a clean out, to take a look at oneself and ensure that God is the focus of the future. Regardless of being an individual, a church, or even a diocese.
Spirit of our Loving God;
In your mercy and compassion,
inspire, encourage and empower us
to live and work together as a diocese;
to allow your mission for us to take flesh.
Through Jesus Christ our Living and Eternal Lord.
