For those who followed Synod 2013 (a lot or a little, delegate or observer); how would you describe Synod 2013 in six words or phrases?

You can just give your six or feel free to unpack why you picked that word or phrase.

I'll start; Synod 2013 was...
A Slow Start - It seemed it took the delegates a while to get going in the discussions

Respectful - Points made on the floor were very respectful.

Sincere - And also very sincere about their perspective.

Intergenerational - I felt the Young Adult representatives contributed a lot to the discussion this year.

Informative - Every year I learn more about church order and process.

#crcsynod - The conversation on Twitter using the #crcsynod hashtag gave great insights on people's reactions and opinions on the debates on the floor.

Blessing - to see the CRCNA at work and worship

Connecting - I felt reconnected to the denomination I'm part of

Big Picture - seeing how my church fits in the whole
