This year’s Fall  Gathering is an intergenerational  sharing of the spirit that  is rising up in our meetings. Friends will have an opportunity  to go deeper . Meals and freetime will be an opportunity to get to know each other across the quarter and generations.

The gathering will have  2 different sharing workshops/sessions that are about 2 hours each : one Saturday morning and one in the afternoon ; there would be about 2 choices each time.

This is our third year coordinating with YAFs.  We all would love to work together, play together, eat together and pray together.
