News & Announcements

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.

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.

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.

Take care,

Robert
