Be Still and Listen: snow and spiritual nurture

Hello beautiful beings,

We have gotten a lot of snow at Beloved Community House. It's snowed pretty much non-stop for the last two weeks, but this morning as Franklin and I got ready to go to Meeting at Perry City it had not only stopped snowing but also looked like some of the snow and ice might be starting to melt.

At Perry City Friends gathered before Meeting, to discuss some of the upcoming spiritual nurture workshops. Friends requested that we change the order of the workshops and added a new topic: What is the Spiritual Aspect of Money? : Finances, Tithing, and Covenant Donation.
We also get a date for our first workshop, which will be:

Fellowship Among Friends: How do We Pray Alone, How Do We Pray Together?

A Meeting should be a spiritual fellowship of Friends. Yet a common problem faced by most Meetings is that a member could attend for years without knowing the spiritual stories and experiences of the Friend sitting next to them.

We will meet at Perry City Meetinghouse.

On Sunday February 13th and 20th at 9:15 am - 10:30 am

we will discuss such questions as:

How do we facilitate nurturing conversations about our spiritual lives?

How do we deepen our spiritual lives together?

How do we talk about our differences in a loving way?

Extra Reading:

Friends should feel free to join us if they can.

Peace and Joy,

  1. Would that we were closer to Beloved Community House, or you to us. This is a wonderful topic that I'm going to suggest to our meeting. Thank you for your energy and love in our YM.
