On Friday, August 20, between 8-8:20 PM, Friends will gather outside their meetinghouses – or at their homes – for a silent, candlelight vigil during which we will remember the many ways we as individuals and a community were impacted by the COVID pandemic. This includes sorrows and joys, hardships and sharing, isolation and fellowship. We will be linked during the 20 minutes by Zoom. Meetings may wish to add a dinner or memorial-style meeting in advance of 8 PM, and invite others (such as the local Council of Churches) to join them. NOTE: Monthly Meetings and individuals participating from home are encouraged to pre-register in order to receive the Zoom link.
Stop. Listen. Something incredible is about to happen . . .
