Brian Drayton (Souhegan, NH, Friends Meeting) is offering monthly opportunities for Zoom-based worship-sharing and conversation, based each month on a different short Quaker text. For this spring series, all selections will be from the writings of Isaac Penington.
Open to all, the opportunities are limited to 20 at a time. If we get full, a waiting list will be kept, in case a regular attender can't make it a particular session.
Sessions for the spring will begin on February 23rd and will continue on the third Wednesday of each month, all at 8 p.m. Sessions start and end promptly!
About one week before the event, Friends will receive the Zoom link, and the month's text. Attenders are asked to read the selection beforehand and reflect in private on a few short questions. Each gathering will open with quick greetings and a brief introduction to the quotation, followed by 15 minutes of conversation about the text. The rest of the time will be spent in worship-sharing. The aim is for the conversation to be slow, spacious, and centered. The final 5 minutes will be silent, before we depart from our miniature retreat.
To RSVP, please send email with "Midweek Meditation" in the subject line to Brian Drayton.
