As a delgate to our Nat'l Convention, you'll understand why I'm seriously thinking of taking the advice of St. Gregory Nazianzen,
I am determined to avoid every assembly of bishops. I have never seen a single instance in which a synod did any good. Strife and ambition dominate them to an incredible degree. From councils and synods I will keep myself at a distance, for I have experienced that most of them, to speak with moderation, are not worth much. I will not sit in the seat of synods, while geese and cranes confusedly wrangle.
