In Ontario, Canada, we have the "Sunshine Law" in which all public servants and those who work for "crown Corporations" and have a salary over $100,000.00 annually have their names and positions published once a year. This has resulted in some degree of openness and accountability. I think our church should do at least as much.
For some time now I have come to the conclusion that it's time for the Canadian churches to have our own Synod — to determine the will of God for our churches in a unique Canadian context. The cultural divide between our two countries has always been great, but it has become increasingly so of late.
