Thoughts on the General Assembly by commissioners.
“What’s a COLA Volunteer?” That question came on the tram from the airport baggage claim area to the bus that would deliver me to my hotel in downtown Minneapolis.
The continued liturgy of the Assembly is happening even as I write.
I am having such a positive experience at the 219th General Assembly serving as a Minister Commissioner.
Its Wednesday, we have been meeting in committees from morning until night, gazing at laptop screens and listening to advocates, resource persons, moderators, one another and the Holy Spirit, we hope.
From my hotel window I look down on a giant, five-story-high wall graphic of music. It is marvelous. Big black notes (all on base clefs) dance across a white painted brick wall. The music is the real thing, a portion of Ravel’s “Gaspard de la Nuit.”
