The Synod. Let’s get thinking and chatting!

So to start us off, from the Synod documents: “The fundamental question that guides this consultation of the People of God”… is the following:

A synodal Church, in announcing the Gospel, “journeys together.”

How is this “journeying together” happening today in your particular Church?

What steps does the Spirit invite us to take in order to grow in our journeying together?

We are invited to:

  • ask ourselves what experiences in our parish and / or diocese the fundamental question calls to mind
  • what joys did they provoke?
  • what difficulties and obstacles have they encountered?
  • what wounds have they brought to light?
  • what insights have they elicited?
  • where, in these experiences, does the voice of the Spirit resound?
  • what is the Spirit asking of us?
  • what are the points to be confirmed, the prospects for change, the steps to be taken?
  • what paths are opening up?
