The Council of General Synod (CoGS) has approved the theme, “Feeling the Winds of God – charting a new course” as the theme for the next General Synod, scheduled June 4 to 10, 2010 in Halifax.
At its fall meeting, CoGS also approved a resolution that a representative from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) be included as participant in planning the meetings for General Synod 2010, the Anglican Church of Canada’s triennial governing convention.
The Anglican Church of Canada and the ELCIC have been in full communion since 2001. Full communion means that Anglicans and Lutherans can freely worship and take communion in each another’s churches, and their clergy can officiate at each other’s services.
In its report, the General Synod 2010 planning committee said it was looking at the possibility of online registration and possibly an electronic convening circular to save on costs.
