A French youth choir, contemporary gospel, the parade of flags representing the 150 countries in which RM is present, a reading of a portion of John 17 in Maharathi (sp?) and a rip roaring Black American style sermon by Cynthia Hale kicked this Convention off to a good start. Cynthia grasped the nettle using both John 17 and Ephesians 4:1-6 as the base for her oft repeated assertion “It ain’t complicated!” What ain’t complicated? The call of the church in general and the various streams of the RM in particular to be united in Christ. Reminded me again of the observation several days ago. “Christ said we are one – we just imagine we are not.” There was a standing ovation when she concluded.
