The Way We Do Things
This is the Western Wall, all that remains of the temple in Jerusalem.
When Jesus drove the moneychangers and animals out of the temple, he made a serious challenge to the way Passover was celebrated in the temple. It was the way it was done. As we are reflecting on the community of believers as the temple of God, perhaps we can see the recent synod as a challenge from Jesus about "the way we do things." in that temple.
