Letter from Archbishops following General Synod
17 February 2017 IN: National News
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have written to members of the General Synod setting out the next steps following the vote on General Synod not to take note of the paper on Marriage and Same Sex Relationships after the Shared Conversations.
Every Diocesan Bishop is asked to meet with their General Synod members for an extended conversation in order to establish clearly the desires of every member of Synod for the way forward.
We commend to your prayers our common concern for every member of this Church, of all views, and most especially our concern for the mission of God to which we are called by the Father, for which we are made ready by the Son, and in which we are equipped by the Holy Spirit.
