SUMMER NATIONAL GATHERING
From the President's Diary
The end of July brought Board members and Society members from around the country to the Summer National Gathering. At Friday evening's opening night ceremonies, guests were welcomed and greetings were shared from those not able to attend. Later we enjoyed a violin recital by the gifted Carmelo de Los Santos. On Saturday, we co-hosted an off-campus, Pre-Parliament event "Hearing Each Other, Healing the Earth," with the Council for the Parliament of World's Religions. The busy weekend included activity reports from various departments, a talk by Robert Ellwood, "Theosophy and World Religions," and a multi-media presentation on the life of Albert Schweitzer. I presented John Algeo's talk on the Seven Rays and Ann Ford, Tim Boyd, and Robert Ellwood each gave a short talk on a different world religion. Meditation programs, discussion groups, and a panel discussion rounded out our Theosophical programs. Thank you to all who visited, participated, and made this 123rd Summer National Gathering possible.
