“This Continuing Session was a moving and enlightening experience for me. I have not attended a Yearly Meeting activity since I attended with my mother in the 1960s. Thank you for making this possible.”
Friends of all ages from across Philadelphia Yearly Meeting came together on Saturday, November 5, for our first fully hybrid (online & in-person) Sessions! There were 250+ registrations with Friends attending from 67 local (monthly) meetings and visitors from six other yearly meetings. Many thanks to the yearly meeting clerks and leadership, elders and pastoral care support, presenters and panelists, the amazing tech team, and staff from both Arch Street and Cherry Street for their service and care for community. Our Sessions theme “Living with our neighbors, growing into beloved community,” was lived out among us as we worshipped, played, discerned, and listened to one another and for Spirit moving among us.
- Minutes from meeting for worship with attention to business on Saturday will be posted soon.
