I have spent the last three days basically in committee. Drafting a document meant to guide a huge global fellowship of churches for the next seven years in a group of 40 can really take a lot of time. So you're getting some random pics.

|I never drink regular soda unless it's Mexican coke mixed with rum, so let's just say today's committee meeting represented a break-down for me. Roasted vegetable sandwich without the bread, fruit, and Korean Coke.|
Then we were in committee meeting from 12:15pm until 6pm, so we missed the workshops and ecumenical conversations. But we made it through. Then there was a closed session on election of WCC presidents (click here and see how many women presidents there are!!!). After electing presidents, we had a contentious conversation about nominations to the Central Committee. It was closed, so I can't really say anything, except that perhaps some churches feel entitled to more seats than there are available. That is all.

Beautiful fruit. Best buffet of my life.
|I totally tricked them into taking this photo. I'm terrible.|
|Dessert. Beautiful dessert.|
