The Saturday session of the 135th diocesan synod got underway promptly at 8:30am and we were adjourned by mid-morning. That's what happens when there's only one contested election, finances are in the black, the budget is not controversial, and the only policy resolutions have to do with companion diocese relationships. (We voted to retire our relationships with Barbados and Recife and take on new ones with Tabora [Province of Tanzania] and Peru.) Home just past noon, Processed some email and prepared a bit for the Nashotah House board meeting during the afternoon, but saved time for a long walk in the beauty of fall foliage. Enjoyed the Illinois Symphony Orchestra concert in the evening.
