Procedurally speaking…

…it seems we’re speaking out of order.

I’ve been swamped to write much (for very happy reasons) and I’ll write from Kitchener and the convention this weekend. To be honest, I’ve written six full-length blogs on convention. I can’t seem to find the words to convey the dearth of meaning I find in the entire exercise. Poetically, our Synod is looking in the wrong direction for solutions. It’s a dog with a bone that’s finally come to thrashing around without regard for decorum: must. eat. bone.

ANO (A Neutral Observer – but one with opinions) is a frequenter of CEF and Synod convention message board. Where I’ve run out of gas and begun to focus on more important matters (re: ANO has kept focus on issues with Synod’s restructuring plan and process.

In his most recent blog, ANO fires a signal flare about procedures that, well, basically we’re just making it all up as we go along.

Read ’em and *facepalm*
