March 23, 2019 – Reading Area
One Quilt, One Yearly Meeting
We are looking forward to gathering together in worshipful resistance, fellowship and work for our 2019 Spring Continuing Sessions. We are excited to receive your Meeting’s quilt square! The quilt squares will be sewn together with love from our beloved yearly meeting community – monthly meetings, collaboratives, councils, Friends schools, and Resource Friends. The quilt will be revealed at Annual Sessions and will wrap the clerk’s table in love and in the Light.
