Disappointed the Bishop of Coventry admits voted in error

Disappointed that the Bishop of Coventry admitted his vote against was accidental.

I had hoped that the Spirit had moved him to listen to those who called upon Synod to vote against.

The Diocese of Coventry, the Laity of which I represent on the General Synod, has always been at the forefront of reconciliation, led by Coventry Cathedral. It is a shame Bishop Christopher had missed such an opportunity for reconciliation with LGBT people within the dioocese and indeed throughout the whole church.

I look forward to my home diocese through the work of cathedral, where I worship every Sunday, taking a lead in the radical inclusion the Archbishop of Canterbury spoke about yesterday.
