Well, your General Synod delegates are all set to go - most of us leave tomorrow with a second "wave" leaving on Wednesday.    As always, we covet your prayers first for safe travel to the synod.  

Meanwhile the Diocese of Toronto has been helping to get ready for the synod.  Here, volunteers get together to pack delegate bags (photo: Diocese of Toronto Facebook):


As always, you can join us here on the blog for daily updates from our delegation throughout the synod.  Each one of us will be blogging a different day, and I (Melanie) will blog every day, so that you hear a variety of voices.  

If you are a twitter user, you can also follow along on twitter.  I am seeing the most activity around the hashtag #gs2016 though #generalsynod2016 is also being used.
