Historical perspective

A Special Synod needed to be called in 1906, which was two years after the first General Synod and three years prior to the planned second General Synod.The reason for the hastily called Synod was that there were serious threats to the integrity of the church from both within and without the denomination. In the process of dealing with duplicitous National priests  who wanted to destabilize  our church in any way possible (so called enemy within), the Synod instituted the Feast of the Humble Shepherds.
