GS 2022 Article 1 – Opening of Synod
On behalf of the convening church, the Guelph-Emmanuel CanRC, Rev. Peter Feenstra called the meeting to order. He reflected on the uncertainty of the years since the last synod and expressed thanks to God for the fact that Synod could convene without restrictions. He spoke some further words of reflection (see Appendix 1), then read Ephesians 3:14-21, led in prayer, and had the assembly sing Hymn 61. He spoke some encouraging words to the delegates regarding the work before them.
