Folks from all over the US, Canada, East Africa, Belize, Britain, and Jamaica came together yesterday, in Highpoint, North Carolina, for the 2008 Friends United Meeting Triennial sessions. So far, we’ve mostly introduced ourselves and talked about FUM’s programs and how they are not recieving the kind of support they need to reach their full potential.
I can’t imagine a much more different Friends conference in comparision with FGC Gathering. While FGC was like summer camp, FUM Triennial is more like a United Nations committee meeting.
More to come.
