    Have just looked at your intro to Pathways to Synodality series. And I like what you say that you are including people who have some thoughts on this already. I also see that the Assoc of Religious are having an attempt to organise a group for laity towards this synodality process beginning with an input from the CEO from Viatores Christi. Then I looked at the info. on the Task Force on Renewal/Synodality set up by the Dublin Diocese and yes, equal membership of men and women (advisors are all male) but if we are serious about female involvement would it not be good if this Task Force were led by a woman?
    So is it just me but all this seems like being led from the “top down rather than the bottom up”?
    It also has such a feel of clericalism to it? A feel of the institutional church…it may have some good thinkers and thoughts and good intentions but God it sounds heavy, language weighted rather than freeing, expressive, creative and transformative…in thinking about all of the above these days the words of Meister Eckhert keep going round in my head, “I pray God to rid me of God”, (at least I think That’s his quote). Thank you. Anne.
