Day 3: WCC GA - the photos

Good morning!

Several head honchos came to greet us, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, the chair of the Pentecostal World Fellowship, and a leader from Rissho Kosei-Kai.

The Asia plenary was both devastating and wonderful: almost half the world's population lives in Asia, which continues to be colonized by neoliberal capitalism and outside powers. In this plenary, I also learned that $7 billion/year, which is what the U.S. spends on ice cream or on dog food, would vaccinate every child globally.

The salty snack Sara Lisherness (another delegate) brought me during plenary. Judge away, friends. It was worth it.

What consensus looks like from my seat.

During the conversation on Ecumenical Theological Education. To the right is my former professor and former boss, David Esterline.

A demonstration outside of the Madang. It is so important to continue the WCC's witness against caste-based discrimination.

Hello Presbyterians... at the Reformed family confessional gathering. Yes, that's Gradye Parsons to the right. And I'm so happy I'm now friends with Toddie Peters!

Dinner, with Chip Hardwick and Jack Haberer.
