On World Quaker Day – October 2nd, twenty of us gathered for Meeting for Worship and fellowship. Ten Friends attended via Zoom, including guests from Kenya, Belgium and Venezuela. Another ten attended in-person at the Browne Center on the campus of Aquinas College.
Our query for Worship was: “In what ways do our Quaker testimonies and processes inform each of us personally and as a Spiritual community? What is their power in our lives?”
Following Worship we offered greetings and heard messages from our international guests, and received updates from or regular attenders. A First Day School report was given with our youngest attender, soon to be two years old, handing out cards made by the children reading “God is Good“.
Friends attending in person stayed for fellowship over a potluck meal, a tradition we have just now resumed after more than two years. All of us were blessed to share this special day together. We wish all Quakers around the World peace and blessings of the Spirit over the coming year.
