To See Takes Time – Like to Have a Friend Takes Time.


Friday, April 28, 2017 - 6:00pm to Sunday, April 30, 2017 - 1:00pm


Friends Meetinghouse
1837 Forest Ave
Portland , ME


In a world of Amazon, Google, Twitter, and fast food, it’s easy to be impatient with how much what matters in life actually takes time.  Whether it’s discerning promptings of the Spirit, playing an instrument, growing life-long friendships, or changing the world, we need patience, determination, stamina  --  and grace --  for the long haul.  How can we enjoy the ride and pay attention to nuances, new growth, and wonder along the way?  On Saturday night we’ll have our annual 8th Grade Celebration and honor all we’ve built together this year.  Registration begins April 2. (Our theme is a quote from Georgia O'Keefe.)
