The 2023 Unit Convention was held in person at the Saluda Shoals Environmental Center.

The gathering was very uplifting. Many of the friends were thrilled with the
numbers of young adults, youth, junior youth and children who were present. There were light
refreshments for the friends, as well as beautiful displays in the hallway. One of the displays included a
visual of the spiritual qualities to be considered in the voting process. There was also a display about the
various Funds. The design of the agenda and flyers was the original artwork of Heather Farris, a newly
enrolled believer. There was also a painting inspired by the 10 Martyrs of Shiraz 40 years ago.
Appreciation was expressed to the Columbia Assembly for the excellent job they did organizing the Unit
Farinaz Wafaii chanted a prayer to close the Convention.
