Time: 12:45:00 PM
Description:   November 12, 12:45 pm, music room: Please join Ann Procter to hear about her experience living and working in Afghanistan. Ann will show "Weep Like the Waterwheel," a short documentary film about Afghan women, and looks forward to sharing her observations about life in Afghanistan. Many of us at Bethesda Friends Meeting are involved in the effort to sponsor, welcome, and help settle an Afghan refugee family to Maryland in the near future. This is a wonderful opportunity to educate ourselves about the culture of a family with whom we expect to be very involved, and will help us interact with them with greater sensitivity. The time of this film and discussion will allow participants to get something to eat at potluck, but please arrange to be in the music room by 12:45.

  How do we quiet our brains enough to hear the still, small voice within us? How might we deepen our experience of meeting for worship? Experiment With Light is a meditative and centering practice based upon Rex Ambler’s book Light to Live By, which describes early Quaker meditative habits and translates them into a highly accessible process of clearness and understanding. EWL is normally held on the 2nd & 4th Sundays at 7:30 at the home of either Jane Melany Coe or Peter/Ruth Nielson-Jones. Please check the weekly Bulletin for up-to-date details.
