Don Quixote rides again

Synod is on at the moment for Sydney Anglicans and as a synod we have just voted to turn 'the big bill we need to pay but don't want to pay' into 'the big bill that that the parishes need to pay from their parish budgets'. When I say 'we voted' to do that, I do not mean your's truly.

I'm on an apparently Quixotic quest to suggest this was a bad idea in the comments at the SydAng website here. I think it is important that we really think hard about this stuff and where we get the most bang for our buck in terms of gospel effectiveness and you might have insights that are helpful, so I encourage you to get involved in the discussion, and any broader discussions that arise about funding principles.
