EME Region Conference 2012, Netherlands

IARF Europe & Middle East (EME)
@ Mennorode conference centre, Elspeet, Netherlands 
19-22 July 2012

 

Even with the very best website, there is no substitute for the physical, live meeting of people; as a balance to our computer-dominated existence, such first-hand encounters may be gaining importance and serve a much-needed function…
                                                  – Dorle Gehrmann

 

The theme was Liberal Religion on ‘hold’,  ‘play’, or ‘fast forward’?, with a focus on leadership.

Some 70 plus people of 12 nationalities from 10 different countries, affiliated to 18 different groups, took part in what was a highly successful  international gathering, hosted by our Dutch Chapter (NLG) and offering a mix of lectures, workshops, devotions, and social events.

THE CHAPEL AT MENNORODE

The worshippers face a wall

Which is a window

From floor to ceiling

Looking out to the garden

Of small pebbles..

To the left of centre

In the sea of pebbles

Is a wooden sculpture

Like the stump of a tree

With a tiny bubbling fountain.

                                                                                               – Richard Boeke
