L’annuale Sinodo delle chiese metodiste e valdesi, che avrebbe dovuto svolgersi dal 23 al 28 agosto prossimo a Torre Pellice (TO), non avrà luogo a causa delle limitazioni e prescrizioni imposte dall’emergenza sanitaria in corso. Ad annunciarlo è la Tavola Valdese in una lettera alle chiese. Le forti limitazioni alla libertà di circolazione delle persone e la logistica della complessa macchina sinodale renderebbero assai difficile l’organizzazione della massima assemblea delle chiese metodiste e valdesi. Dopo un’attenta valutazione di opzioni alternative che non si sono rivelate fattibili, la Tavola Valdese ha deciso di rimandare l’appuntamento all’agosto 2021. Naturalmente resta aperta, ove dovessero verificarsi situazioni di emergenza, la convocazione di un Sinodo straordinario. Anche le Conferenze distrettuali (le assemblee regionali di ognuno dei quattro distretti in cui sono suddivise le chiese metodiste e valdesi), in programmazione nel mese di giugno, non avranno luogo.
