The World President’s address at the Final Dinner of the 21st GFS World Council, Swansea, Wales
3 August 2014
Introducing the theme
Distinguished guests, clerical and lay and my GFS friends.
What a wonderful 10 days we have experienced, as guests of GFS in Wales – and how well they looked after us, as we worked through many issues relating to GFS worldwide, as we heard from each GFS country, the highs and lows and challenges and as we looked to the future. And that has culminated in the inspiring Closing Service we have all experienced.
My thanks to Glenys for agreeing that I could speak tonight, particularly to introduce the theme I have chosen for Australia’s term as host country and mine as World President and to talk a little about our vision for GFS worldwide during our term.
