We reconvened the synod at 8:30am and were finished two hours later. No election required more than one written ballot, there was zero conversation about the budget, and no resolution were offered save the customary resolutions of courtesy. There was a positive spirit throughout. We are on our way into discipleship and mission. So I mean it when I say I have the best job in the world in the best diocese in the world.
Home in time for lunch, a nap, a walk, and a little email processing before packing up once again and heading down to Alton, where I enjoyed a very gracious dinner with vestry and spouses (and, of course, their fine rector, Fr David Boase).
