Spiritual State of the Meeting Month (February)
Each year, the Ministry & Worship Committee (M&W) drafts a Spiritual State of the Meeting report for the Meeting’s consideration. M&W relies on the insights of everyone in our community in drafting this report.
There will be multiple opportunities to share your thoughts, including: through reflections during the 9:00 Meeting for Business (February 2), conversations during potluck (February 9), through requests to all committees, and through a worship sharing session at 12:30 on February 16 (classroom at the back of the multi-purpose room).
If you prefer, feel free to e-mail any member of M&W with your thoughts (Lydia A., Margaret B., Ralph B., Jackie D., Deb F., Stephanie K., Linda M., Doug S., Eric S. and Georgianna Z.).
The queries we encourage you to consider are:
Query 1. How well does our Meeting nurture our spiritual lives and provide opportunities for rich and supportive interactions amongst all of us?
Query 2. How might we deepen our capacity for compassion and generosity as we interact with individuals, groups, and organizations external to our Meeting community?
A first reading of the report will be held at the March Meeting for Worship with a Concern for Business, with a second reading in April. After approval, it is forwarded to Baltimore Yearly Meeting.
