Business Agenda

Morning Sessions (9:30 am)

Evening Sessions (6:45 pm)

  • Welcome and Introductions – PYM Presiding or Alternate Clerk TBA
  • An Opportunity to Speak Out of Spirit on Questions of Race, Inclusion & Diversity Christopher A. Lucca, Presiding Clerk
    We as Friends are called to work and witness for justice, wholeness, and connection. We feel a hunger to be gathered in the Spirit despite great pain and brokenness within our body and in the wider world. We want to invite Friends to share the concerns that are on our hearts. We settle now for a time of worshipful reflection — a period of worship sharing. Friends are invited to share what is weighing on their hearts and lift up prayer for beloved community, naming those concerns which most threaten that vision.
