Challenges #GC43

Updated, July 25.

During General Council 43, various people will be reporting on what’s happening, sharing moments and offering their reflections.  Marlene Britton-Walfall* reminds us that amongst the fun there is challenge and hard work. 

 

It’s the morning of the 4th day of this meeting in OshaWow!

Devotions this morning challenged us to reflect on times when your boat has been buffeted by waves of various kinds, and challenged to help those who are having their boats battered.  Strengthened by the prayers from the 4 directions we then launched into the business section of the meeting.

Considerations of the proposals are ongoing, and it is strenuous indeed. A picture is worth a thousand words!
