Diocesan Synod and the Canon On Marriage

posted 7 Mar 2017, 08:09 by Dean Fostekew
This Saturday will see the Clergy and Lay representative of the Church of the Good Shepherd attending the Spring Diocesan Synod. At this meeting we will discuss and debate Canon 31 on Marriage to try and discern the will of God in how that Canon is interpreted in light of Equal Marriage in Scotland. There will arguments for and against allowing same sex couples to marry to church and the decision of the Diocesan Synod will be taken to the Provincial General synod in June for the final vote on the amended Canon. Please pray for all of us involved in Diocesan Synod at this important time and for good management of the outcomes of any vote.
