Representative Report of the South Central Yearly Meeting 2018

Just under 160 souls attended South Central Yearly Meeting between March 29 & April 1, 2018 in Bruceville, Texas.  

As Live Oak Friends Meeting Representative to South Central, I conveyed LOFM memorial minutes of June Bray, Jann Barr, and Pam Hunter and shared in the joint LOFM+Caddo Worship Group birth announcement of Gustav Drexler. I thank Claude Jager-Rubinson & Betty Drexler helping me with the reading of Pam’s minute and Gustav’s announcement.


While working on LOFM's Propety Workday (March 24, 2018), one friend pulled vines out of the south fence and trees there.  Spring has come and poison ivy is back.  commented that the poison ivy was out.  So are greenbriar, muscadine grape, and Virginia creeper. 

If you react to poison ivy or don't know, stay away from the vines along the south fence.  Itchy and a bumpy rash can be serious and start to come out in a day or two.  With a friend who touched them today, he scrubbed to get the oil off his skin.  

This class provides an explanation of how meetings function. Available to the first six people, or couples if they can share a books. Questions, concerns or to sign up, please contact Jane Houser [email protected].

As our city and the surrounding areas begin to recover from Hurricane Harvey, we are grateful for the many donations and expressions of care and concern. We received donations from more than ninety individuals, Quaker Meetings and Friends Churches in many areas of the country. We are grateful that so many thought of us when there are so many needs in the world.


Healing has been a Quaker tradition since the time of George Fox.  Learn more in this Friends Journal article about the history and practice of this profound work, with its invitation to share your own experience of Meeting for Worship for Healing
