The newly-elected Ely Diocesan Synod has gathered this morning for its first meeting and very properly began with the Eucharist in the Lady Chapel of the Cathedral. The first disciples walked with Jesus, followed him literally, and ate with him. To be Synod is to walk together in the way of Christ today. That’s what “Synod” means. So just as we hope each day of our own lives grows out of our prayer in and to Christ, so may our discussions and decisions today grow out of our fellowship with him.
