It’s been a whirlwind, these months back in the States spreading information and enthusiasm about God’s mission in the Andes. Today I’m at the summer conference of the Synod of Southern California and Hawaii’s Presbyterian Women, stealing a moment to catch up a little bit on things I’ve been meaning to share.
First on that list are links to some articles that came out of the Latin American Council of Churches (CLAI) assembly in May. Let’s start with shameless self-promotion: I’m humbled that Eva Stimson wrote such a nice profile of me! All accurate except for the part about moving in July–that’s really happening, God willing, in October.
Second (and last for now), here’s a laundry list of other things that might be of interest to folks interested in the world of ecumenical relations: scripture was invoked to describe the challenges facing CLAI as well as in worship; the need for greater inclusivity was highlighted by young adults and women; and a new president was elected. It was a privilege for me to be at CLAI’s assembly, to visit Cuba for the first time, and to celebrate in characteristic Latin American style with so many sisters and brothers in Christ.
