Penn Valley Friends
Meeting for Worship: 10am-11am, First Days (Sunday)
After Meeting Program: 11:30-12:30
This report was submitted to Iowa Yearly Meeting-Conservative and read in session at the Annual Meetings in July, 2018.
Who and what is Penn Valley Meeting? Who do we wish to become--spiritually, socially, and communally? What are our hopes and dreams for Penn Valley? How might we work toward meeting those dreams? Our first session was held Wednesday, April 25th, at 2 pm. Sessions will be held on the 2nd Saturday and 4th Wednesday of every month and will continue until we are ready to move into planning and strategizing more specifically.
Read the whole chapter daily for a week. Focus on the verse. Ask yourself these questions:
- What is the Historical context?
- Did I see anything new here?
- How does this scripture relate to my life?
- Where do I agree and where do I disagree?
- Why do I agree or disagree?
I suggest you keep a journal of your responses and reflect back later. For more information, please contact Sharon Eiker.
As of Thursday, September 28th, 2017.
My name is Robert. I stopped in for meeting back in November after the election which was a hard time for me. I really enjoyed the meeting, and meant to return for another. Life catches up with you though and I just didn't make the time which I regret. Me and my wife are moving to Lawrence later this month and I am going to try and get in touch with the Oread Friends Meeting when we move. I just wanted to reach out and thank you all for being such a welcoming place. I wish I had made it out to more meetings, but am glad for the experience I had.
