President’s Report

MattWeiler-headshot-colorMatt Weiler

The energy in the room at this year’s Issues Convention was impressive to say the least. I was particularly delighted to see the positive manner in which the body responded to our adjustment with the voting process. One vote per person and one swift movement with no membership requirements attached only served to strengthen the integrity of our efforts in becoming an ever more inclusive body. It was also a tremendous affirmation of the ISAAC Executive Committee and Leadership Board vision as the Issues Convention voted to make anti-racism a focused issue for the next two years. What a witness this diverse and ecumenical body will bear to a divided world as we unite and press on for the sake of justice in the years to come. May the Spirit guide our energy and passion.
