I must say, however, that for those of us, myself included from time to time, who come forward to the Communion rail, with questions or doubts in our hearts, or who fear that this is just an action we take that has no lasting effect, the body and blood of Christ, becoming part of you, can, and will, have a lasting effect even if you can't, or won't, acknowledge it yet. Communion, the body and blood of Christ, is a visible and outward sign of an invisible and spiritual grace, that by definition cannot be seen. Even if you don't feel that you can believe in it today, trust that God will do the work until you are ready to join him in it.  Allow yourself to receive Communion recognizing that all the work is done on God's end, and when you are ready and not a moment before, the responsibility that comes with the transformation will be waiting for you.

From Thursday, May 28th until Saturday May 30th, the St. James synod delegates attended the 146th Session of Synod of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The Synod was called to order by Bishop Ron Cutler with Opening Prayer. After that, the plan for Synod was not like Synods of the past and not all about business. A program had been developed by a group of clergy from our diocese who have been participating in a national initiative known as the Inter-Diocesan Learning Community. The purpose of the IDLC is to help dioceses in the Anglican Church of Canada grow in God's mission. The underlying premise for these discussions is that our church is standing in a moment of crisis, which relates to the way that the changes in our culture are exposing how far we have stayed from our fundamental purpose as a community in God's mission.
