Mareen and I were pleased to represent the LDS Church at the 222nd biennial Presbyterian (USA) General Assembly held last week at the Portland Convention Center. It’s a gathering of the top 3000 leaders of PCUSA to worship, plan church strategy, and interact with ecumenical and interfaith leaders from other faith communities. Elder Richard K. Hansen of the Seventy (right) joined Rabbi Joshua Rose (left) and Wajdi Said of the Muslim Educational Trust (center) to address the Assembly on Sunday. The other photo shows the Reverend Gradye Parsons (head of the PCUSA) preaching in an ecumenical service. On behalf of the Northwest North America LDS Church members, Mareen presented him with a Christus statue at his retirement party to commemorate his long and dedicated service to the Christian community.
