Quaker Parent Postlude
October 16 @ 9:00 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every month that begins at 9:00 pm on day Third of the month, happening 3 times
Quaker Parent Postlude is a space for people who are currently engaged in bringing up children, to come together for worship, reflection, and connection.
The focus of this 30-minute program is to have some quiet time together at the end of Sunday before a new week begins; it will be held in Quaker waiting worship. Each time will open with a reading and end with a short piece of music. In between, we will hold space for each other in the container of silence, with the invitation to share as led. Join from a comfortable space and feel free to bring a mug of tea!
We will mute ourselves when not speaking to help ensure that everyone can hear ministry and to minimize background noise. Join the meeting whenever you can in the half-hour and don’t worry if you can’t make it for the start time.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
A 3-month Experiment
We’ll gather on the third Sunday of the month from October to December 2022 at 9:00 p.m. for 30 minutes:
- October 16, 2022
- November 20, 2022
- December 18, 2022
Depending on the response, we’ll continue in 2023.
Quaker Parent Postlude is supported by members of the Community Engagement and Youth Programs staff and partnering Friends in local meetings. Thanks to Friends in Britain Yearly Meeting for another wonderful idea to borrow and try!
