Synod Blogging 6-Canons

John Richardson introduces the debate.

We are back to our hobby – reforming Canon 4. This is the canon that deals with the election of bishops. We love revising this. We do it often.

Aberdeen have proposed an amendment but then have to be encouraged to propose it. Indeed, they don’t.

The changes to Canon 4 pass easily.

Now we debate a discussion paper on Membership. There is a Motion to accept this paper. I’ve been quite nippy in the past about the fact that it is a nonsense to vote on discussion papers. We should not vote on them, we should discuss them.

During the debate, Malcolm Round says that we all know that we are an inclusive church.
