Thank you, Lynn Japinga and John Coakley, for inviting me to share my personal experiences during James Forman’s liberation of the Reformed Church offices during the 1969 General Synod. Although being present for most of Forman’s liberation of the RCA offices has certainly been my most unusual experience during my more than forty years as a minister of the Word and sacrament, I have never spoken or written about those experiences.
