Penn Valley Friends
On June 25th, the program after Meeting for Worship will be a discussion of the State of the Meeting--in preparation for the writing of the annual State of the Meeting Report for Iowa Yearly Meeting Conservative.
As of June 16, 2017, I have scanned 2207 pages in the Penn Valley Archives residing with the Historical Society of Missouri--and made available to me/us with the Society's incredible cooperation in allowing me to visit once a week for 6-7 hours of scanning. They would welcome me more frequently, but my body can hardly handle that amount of dedicated scanning as it is.
5:00 pm - Potluck
6:00 pm – Continuing Conversation on PVM-CAIR-Kansas Relationship
7:45 pm – Quaker Game
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.
Dr. Moussa Elbayoumy, Chairman of the Kansas Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, will join us to tell us more about CAIR, its mission and activities.
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.
