Brian Blackmore, Director of Quaker Engagement at the American Friends Service Committee, will be with us during the Second Hour. We’ll be taking him to lunch afterwards, if anyone would like to join in.

Second Hour for January 21

We will consider the following queries, sent to us by SAYMA to use as the basis for the creation of our annual State of the Meeting report:

1. What has our monthly meeting been holding/carrying this past year?

2. How has our meeting embraced the Light, and in so doing, how have we been changed?

3. What holds us together and helps us avoid becoming overwhelmed by the brokenness of the world?
