General Assembly Part 2

A few more thoughts from people about General Assembly, thanks to Jamie and Susannah for these. Added a few pictures from the week too. You can find more at the cosy flickr page.
I had a fantastic time meeting lots of brilliant people and learning different procedures in the assembly. I am so glad I went because it was some great experience and I have made some great friends. (Susannah)
This was my first time at the General Assembly. I found that having attended the National Youth Assembly prior to GA, helped me understand the whole deliverance process. My favourite part was definitely worship every morning – the selection of psalms were mostly unfamiliar, but I was fascinated that one man could stand in front of 900 people, pitching and leading them unaccompanied – very impressive! The night-time prep. sessions were useful, helping clarify any points before the next day’s work began. Also, spending time discussing the issues with others, made you aware of the variety of views on each of the subjects. (Jamie)

One Response to “General Assembly Part 2”

  1. On the Saturday evening of the Assembly, all the former Moderators of the National Youth Assembly took me (Moderator 2002 and 2003 and Clerk for most of my adult life, or so it seemed at the time) out for a meal. Everyone was saying nice things to each other, and they asked me to pop onto this blog what I said.

    I just think that the reform and improvement of the General Assembly over the last ten years has been massively influenced by the Youth Reps. They bring a knowledge, understanding and diligence, as well as character, fun and energy, to the larger Assembly. I have a feeling the contribution of the youth is possibly underestimated, but it’s one of those things that history will no doubt realise in years to come.

    I’m off now to see the pirates, and then the Taliban. All the best for Youth Assembly when it comes.
