We have an agenda for our meeting in the Prospect Park Cemetery on Saturday.
After worship at 11 and lunch at noon (I’m told we may finish up with a surprising treat!), we will convene at 1:00 p.m. on the lawns to hear what Friends have been doing and decide how we’ll go forward. You can click on many of these items to read them in advance:
There will be selection of additional members to be Trustees. (See earlier Nominating post.)
We will hear Minutes of Monthly Meetings that bring us matters to consider: Morningside asks that we respond to the increasingly inhumane facts of solitary confinement as presently practiced, and Brooklyn Meeting asks that we take notice of its concern that our Yearly Meeting uphold Earthcare witness among the Priorities it is deciding.
We expect to consider the annual or quarterly reports of the Housing Committee (Rosehill), the ad hoc “Relationships” Committee, the Cemetery Committee, the Great Lakes (Africa) Education Committee, and our Committee on Ministry & Counsel.
And, looking forward to November, we’ll hear how our preparations are for hosting the Fall Sessions of NY Yearly Meeting in NYC this year.
I look forward to seeing you all, Friends!
