MESSAGE FROM MINISTRY AND WORSHIP:
In preparing the annual report on the Spiritual State of the Meeting (SSOM), the Ministry and Worship (M&W) Committee invites you to reflect on your spiritual experience in the Meeting over the last year (2017) and to share your thoughts and concerns. 

Friends may reflect on any or all of these queries, as they are led:

  1. How has Meeting for Worship and our community supported my spiritual growth?
  2. In what ways have we and have we not lived our vision of being a spiritual community?
  3. How has the Meeting supported our members' leadings to let our lives speak to the challenges in our communities, country, and the world?

The committee plans to gather comments on these queries during three sessions

  • January 14, 2018, 12:30 p.m. (SSOM conversation tables at potluck)
  • January 21, 2018, 12:30 p.m. (Worship sharing in the Meeting Room) 
  • January 28, 2018, 9:30 a.m. (ARE session in the Music Room using an Experiment with Light format)

Quite apart from these planned sessions, your reflections are welcome at any time and can be conveyed in any format to any member of the M&W committee.

The committee expresses its deep gratitude to everyone for participating in this moment of communal discernment.
