(The SSOM is drafted in February/March and finalized in April, 2024)
SEEKING INPUT ON THE SPIRITUAL STATE OF OUR MEETING (SSOM)
Each year, the Ministry and Worship Committee gathers input on the spiritual state of the meeting and develops a report for consideration by the Meeting. To frame these discussions, we develop queries on how friends are feeling about their participation in Bethesda Friends Meeting, what is working or not working, and how we might provide the best possible spiritual nurture. We truly value every response we get and hope you will give us your views.
Queries on which we invite input are set out below
You do not need to respond to each of the queries; we welcome input on those that resonate with you.
Pathways to provide input include the following
We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you! -- from the BFM Ministry and Worship Committee
A first reading of the SSOM report will be held at the March 3, 2024 Meeting for Worship with a Concern for Business,
with a second reading in April.
After approval, it is forwarded and archived by the Baltimore Yearly Meeting.
