Comments: synod reports for Wednesday

As a Yank who finds the entire notion of a Covenant that seems to lack any purpose except to try to force gays back into the closet, I want to thank The Rev. Brian Lewis of the Diocese of Chelmsford, Bishop John Gladwin of Chelmsford, The Rev. Canon Ann Stevens of the Diocese of Southwark, Kevon Carey & a layperson from the Diocese of Chichester for their comments about the proposed Anglican Covenant & the "Windsor process." After hearing the ABC say that the C of E recognized them as "the only game in town," it is good to hear that support for them is not universal after all.

I am a service user of the mental health services in SE London and was priveleged to be able to talk to the West Lewisham Deanery Synod a few weeks ago now, about how the Churches may better support and include those in their number with mental health issues. I was then thrilled to see that General Synod only a couple of weeks later was discussing the same subject on Wednesday 13th.

At a local level I would be privileged to be able to talk to any churches, groups, meetings etc., on this subject. It is a light hearted presentation which can last for as short or long a time as your arrangments dictate. I am supported by a chaplain working in a Psychiatric Hospital. I would like very much to discuss whether or not I could be useful and helpful in this. It is a door I have been knocking on for 10 years, and knocking more loudly during the last 4 years and The Lord has graciously opened the way. Praise His Holy Name.
