Synod

According to dictionary.com:
A council or an assembly of church officials or churches; an ecclesiastical council.

Basically, it's a way of saying we don't have a pope or one person acting as ultimate authority. Decisions are made in council, hopefully by building consensus. It's named that way to reflect how the denomination was set up, much like how a town can officially be a "village" or a state can be a "commonwealth." Hope that makes sense, welcome to the flist! :)
