Synod and the ACNA
Synod starts soon( steady now, don't get too excited...)and, although the debate on women bishops has had to be postponed, there is still plenty to look forward to. There is, of course, the debate on whether the Church is going to have the decency to offer equal pension rights to the surviving partners of priests who have entered into civil partnerships as it does to spouses, but also there is the motion by lay member Lorna Ashworth that Synod should, "be in communion with the Anglican Church in North America."
Hang on...if it is really the Anglican Church in North America, wouldn't we already be in communion with it?
