Last spring I was asked to design a new “Welcome Business Card” for my meeting, Gwynedd Friends. This card was to have an inviting image on the front with a place on the back for the name and contact information of someone who was available for information and support. Upon reflection I realized that the most inviting image I could think of was of the people who make up our spiritual community.
On September 8, I took that picture with the instruction that everyone look at the camera as if it was a dear friend that they hadn’t seen for a while. The member and attenders of Gwynedd Friends Meeting had no problem with that instruction and the result is the photograph you see here.
