The current Agenda for our Quarterly Meeting for business on October 26 is here.
You’ll see that it has lots of interesting and even joyous stuff to hear … and a couple of useful things to decide … but very little stuff that seems to need much discussion. From that first impression, you never know where the Spirit will lead us – after all, a lot of inspiring things are happening.
Here are the ones we have so far: Reports from our Meetings – Staten Island, Morningside, Manhattan, Flushing, Fifteenth Street and Brooklyn; our Ministry & Counsel Committee’s proposed intervisitation plan; Nominations for our action; Brooklyn’s proposal on our buildings’ electricity sourcing; and our readiness – and needs you can consider filling – for hosting Yearly Meeting sessions next month. Our ad hoc “Relationship” committee reports on the status among Quarterly Meeting, Fifteenth Street Meeting and Friends Seminary. And here’s Friends Seminary’s annual report, and here’s Brooklyn Friends School’s 4-page annual report (with 17 pages of addenda: brochure for parents on Quakerism; report of African education support).
More will be added to this list through Friday, October 24th, as they come in, so check back here to see them! Any last-minute subway or other alerts may also be posted here.
I hope to see many of you at Flushing on the big Sunday! See the next post below for a link to details about the meetinghouse there.
