Church of England Synod - Your Reactions and Reflections

Synod has now finished. Many interesting discussions were had on the topic of Mary, Grace and Hope in Christ (relating to ARCIC), the Wedding Project and many other topics, including some speeches on the benefits of ecumenism.

What did you think of this Synod? Were you there, taking in all the action, or listening on Premier Christian Radio? Either way, let us know your thoughts!
