FWCC 2010, Day 1
Here in the Section of the Americas, we’re considering whether we should drop most of our regular business to spend the next two years organizing a dozen smaller gatherings all over the Americas on this same theme. It would also be in conjunction with the FWCC World Office initiative entitled Mending the World: A Broken Covenant? Friends’ Responses to Global Change. It would be a big change, and it’s not a sure deal yet.
Some of the questions that came up today include basic questions of time and money and priorities. A few of the more interesting questions are:
How will committees continue to function if they don’t meet at the annual sessions?
How can we put the institutional resources (experience, time, organization, money) of FWCC to work supporting the energy of Young Adult Friends rather than trying to create something new?
Is this what God is calling us to do?
[It's only the end of the first day, and I am completely worn out, despite a nap in the middle of the day. The time change, my allergies, other minor ailments, all are depleting my normal energy and cheerfulness. And I still have to go to worship sharing in Spanish at 8:00 tonight. I’m just hoping I sleep better tonight.]
