Events, Recent and Upcoming

Evening with Visiting Ministry

Monday, July 16 Martha and Stella Penzer's House, 49 Murray St., Burlington. There will be a potluck supper followed by worship with visiting ministers Kathleen Wooten of Fresh Pond Monthly Meeting and Jay O’Hara of West Falmouth Preparative Meeting. Here is an excerpt from the letter they wrote to our meeting:

We know in modern times we are most comfortable with traveling ministry where a Meeting may invite a Friend to lead a workshop or a second-hour program, or where a Friend shows up to regularly scheduled worship for "intervisitation." We have almost lost the once-common experience of Quaker traveling ministry where a Friend may be called to travel from her own inward guide and show up at a Meeting in any number of forms....

We do not come with what some might expect: namely an agenda. We have no workshop, we're not trying to sign anyone up for anything, only a desire to sit in expectant waiting on the Divine guide with Friends and to share about our labor to be faithful in challenging times. We are coming with a curiosity, and one we hope we might share: How might we together be more faithful to the life and power that God is calling us to?
