The meetinghouse will be open on Sunday, March 15, for Meeting for Worship. Cindy will open the meetinghouse, and Kay will be there for childcare.  There will be no First Day lesson.  We encourage people who choose to attend to continue the practice we began last week of greeting each other without touching and of maintaining a social distance during worship. The Forum scheduled for this Sunday, on becoming an anti-racist meeting, will be postponed until April 26.
