Only a Synod

Harold Macdonald

It is not impossible it cannot be allowed

to be impossible that we speak to

one another and speaking,

hear

 

‘though the edges of our discourse

be light years apart and the very concept

of light years is not a shared

learning.

 

It is not enough that we all watch

Good Morning Canada, in French

and sees the same identical smile super

empty.

 

People themselves must talk together

about the things that matter, like sex

and death and suicide and holiness and

kids.

 

A conversation taking place

a two way – God, a dialogue! –

is the only way towards a caring,

a unity

 

and a peace, the only way

for growth.  That is why

Canada always needs a

General Synod.
