He is to be alone, apart, while he is prepared by the current Receiver for the job, which is the most honored in our community. Alone? Apart? Jonas listened with increasing unease. ‘Therefore the selection must be sound. It must be a unanimous choice of the Committee. They can have no doubts, however fleeting. If, during the process, an Elder reports a dream of uncertainty, that dream has the power to set a candidate aside instantly. Jonas was identified as a possible Receiver many years ago. We have observed him meticulously. There were no dreams of uncertainty. He has shown all of the qualities that a Receiver must have.’” – pages Think about the assignment, “Receiver of Memory.” What do you assume that role will be like for Jonas based on this excerpt found on pages ?
