Our thanks go to Einar for the announcement.
Here, we should note that Einar is the *only* National President in the
world who is on theos-xxxx lists and frequently has participated in various
discussions and we should all recognise this and thank him as well. I would
be looking forward to his valuable feedbacks and discussion in the future.
My best wishes go to Arnalds for a successful term of office in his great
responsibility. One thing that I note regarding Arnalds is that he is a a
practicing attorney. There is a parallel here in that H S Olcott and W Q
Judge were also practicing attornies. Based on my observation, attorneys
have spearheaded most of the major social, political and spiritual advances
helping the Humanity and I am very confident that we may expect great things
from Arnalds in helping Theosophy in Iceland make great strides.
