Pool Closed Next Summer.

I think by now you'll notice the theme of these threads. It helps me stay interested. Anyway...

By a slim margin, the Synod decided not to convene in 2010. I think it was 120-100. The major concern seemed to be the economy. It's all in the way it gets communicated. Are we talking about saving $225,000. Or, are we going to give every member $1 back next year? Well, yes. One speaker suggested that the money saved go to mission at the local level. Another speaker wondered how valuable the connections are that are developed at annual synod meetings? Can you put a price tag on them?

I tend to agree with the latter speaker. My church will "save" about $200 next year. We couldn't even have a church potluck for that. I can already say for myself, that I've thoroughly enjoyed the swim for the past two days. In 2010, I think other first time swimmers would have too. I don't think this was the right decision.
