Spirit-Led, Interactive Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting
October 25 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Let’s get at least 5 friends (not including the PQM representatives) from every monthly meeting in Philadelphia to show up! And you will love what is in store!
Two group learning activities
- 1:00 – 1:30 PM — Join our hosts, Chestnut Hill Friends on “Engaging Young Quakers Across Distance: a demonstration on using Google Classroom for First Day School”. Donna Pucci, FDS coordinator, will share their success, and invite other monthly meetings to join.
- 3:00 – 4:00 PM — Join us in a Spirit led inquiry – to learn with and from each other. We’ll break out into small groups to consider the Queries below on how we as Quakers practice our faith in our communities – and how the Quarter can support our efforts.
Thank you to Friend Barry Sloane for agreeing to clerk this Quarterly Meeting with Attention to Business.
PQM Nominations Committee will update us on the search for a new Quarter Clerk (and others) to start January 2021. The CPMM Climate Crisis Minute has been considered by all monthly meetings in the Quarter. Request for mutual support will be received. And more.
The Philadelphia Quarter has an opportunity to build on the work from our past Clerks – deep thanks to Anthony Stover and Hollister Knowlton!
These Queries arose from Friends in the Quarter’s reflection on the challenges many are facing during this unprecedented time of pandemic, racial injustice, economic and climate crisis and civic polarization.
How do we live our faith? How can we care and support each other?
- Please describe the community that your monthly meeting is in. Specifically, what are it hurts and what are its strengths? I.e. what is its pain?
- In what ways does your Monthly Meeting take actions, partner and celebrate its community?
- How, in what ways could the Quarter support your efforts to give to your community?
- To what extent does the community of the MM reflect the community that it “lives” in? How are they different and why?
