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 about 20 participants 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 winter/spring of 2023 will be on the third Wednesday of each month, February through May, at 8 to 9 p.m. (Feb 15th, March 15th, April 19th, May 17th).
One week before the event, Friends will receive the Zoom link, and a short quotation from a Friend modern or ancient. Attenders will be asked to read the selection beforehand and reflect in private on a few short questions. This series builds on two sessions in the fall, on prayer and the Scriptures. With this preparation, the new series will focus on topics that have been persistently important in Friends' controversies over the last 350 years.
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.
If you wish to participate, contact Brian at [email protected], and please put Midweek Meditations 2023 in the subject line!
