Lake Forest Friends Meeting
At our conveners meeting, we asked a query about the purpose of a Quaker committee. Here are some of the reflections in the notes that I took. Inspired by last Friday night’s poetry reading, I tried to write them as haikus.
The manner of Friends.
Start with centering silence.
It is ministry.
Light Within from each of us.
Each is invited.
You are part of the body.
Thank you for service.
Things need to get done.
Join us as we discuss our business for Lake Forest Friends Meeting.
Please join us for adult religious education when we will read from Howard Thurman and discuss of his understanding of mysticism and spirituality.
Attention, members and attenders who incur expenses on behalf of the Meeting:
