4)   Presentation #2: Robin Mohr, Executive Secretary of Friends World Committee for Consultation, Section of the Americas
Robin Mohr has served as Executive Secretary since 2011. She is a writer, minister and mother. She was born in California; holds a Bachelor of Science of Foreign Service from Georgetown University, and is fluent in Spanish. Robin coined the term “convergent Friends” in 2005 to express a contemporary movement of the Holy Spirit across divides of age, geography and theology, referring to Friends seeking a deeper engagement with our Quaker heritage and a more authentic life in the kingdom of God on earth today, radically inclusive of all who wish to live this life. She and her husband Christopher are now members of Green Street Monthly Meeting in Philadelphia YM, and they have two young adult children.
