Junior Yearly Meeting Retreat
Quakers have an amazing way of making decisions (when done faithfully), but it takes practice -- and a vocabulary lesson! What is ‘the sense of the meeting?’ Does” letting something season” mean ‘please pass the salt & pepper?’ It can be really hard to have a group of friends choose a different idea than the one you suggested. How do we let go of what we want and listen for what the Spirit is guiding us to do as a community? This retreat will be a fun introduction to Friends’ Meeting for Business, inspired by Wellesley Meeting Friends’ Nancy Haines’ and Anne Nydam’s wonderful new picture book entitled Approved! Registration begins Sept. 18.
