Brian Drayton (Souhegan Friends Meeting) is offering monthly mid-week opportunities for Zoom-based worship-sharing and conversation. Open to all, the opportunities are limited to 30 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 fall will be on the third Wednesday of each month, September through December, at 8 p.m.
One week before the event, Friends will receive the Zoom link, and a short quotation from a Friend modern or ancient. This year's exercises will draw from writings by women Friends across four centuries.
Attenders will be asked to read the selection beforehand and reflect in private on a few short questions. The themes this fall will be prayer, the role of scripture, and continuing revelation.
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.
There will be a spring series January through May, which will be announced in December.
