2013:7 Minute of Record: Address of Friends in Residence

Plenary Session # 3 was devoted to an address by our Friends in Residence Becca and Paul Mohally-Renk Friends from Jubilee House, Nicaragua.

Our Friends in Residence were introduced by Betsy Kenworthy, Multnomah Monthly Meeting, who pointed out that this is the first time a former Junior Friend from this yearly meeting has addressed the Annual Session in this role. She also told the plenary that our other Friend in Residence is from Cork Meeting in Ireland. She assured us that we would hear from them how they came to be where they are now planted, from where they have come to address the theme of our Annual Session: “Not by My Strength Alone: Laboring Beyond Our Comfort Zones.”

A copy of the script their address (with power point notes) was submitted and is attached to this final Account of the Proceedings.

The Plenary closed in waiting worship.
