Presented by Melinda Wenner Bradley
Creating all-ages community is vital to the future of our Religious Society. We’ll explore possibilities for invitation, welcome, and inclusion of families and children in the life of local meetings and the Quarter. How can we prepare spaces and programs to welcome newcomers? How are we called to rethink practices and structures that are barriers to family and youth participation? We hope participating Friends will return to their home meetings with a renewed vision and specific tools for growing together in spiritual community.
About this Series
Like so many events in 2020, Caln Quarterly Meeting’s annual gathering was canceled for May of 2020. Rather than throwing in the towel, we pivoted and recycled this year’s gathering theme, Growing Our Meetings, into a well-attended Zoom session that introduced how many Meetings are growing and what their practices for outreach are. The session was open to members and attenders from across several yearly meetings–far beyond Caln Quarter. The feedback from many of the 120 people who registered for that session on May 2, 2020, opened the way for us to continue with a multi-part series that will provide more details on many of the topics and issues raised during the May Zoom session.
