Our Synod will be considering a third option. Stuff carries a report here. Taonga reports here.
Option A = reinstatement
Option B = new build
Option C = give the cathedral to the government (i.e. to the people of New Zealand).
I have pulled out of proposing the motion to the Synod because I do not support Option C and could not speak in favour of it. (I am quite happy with reinstatement or a new cathedral so could speak in favour of both as the motion originally proposed.)
This week we have three Area meetings in order to discuss this new development (along with some other late Synod business).
I may or may not post my reasons for opposing Option C subsequent to those meetings.
You may or may not wish to comment here on Options A or B or C (or propose D ...)
