From Lloyd Lee Wilson: Just a reminder that we're scheduled to resume our study of Mark this week, on the 25th.  We'll be taking up the story with the Transfiguration, starting with Chapter 9:2.

From House and Grounds:  We will have our annual fall workday on Saturday, November 3rd, to rake leaves, clean gutters, and do other tasks around the grounds, as well as some window washing (inside or out). We invite all who can to participate. We will be engaged between the hours of 9:30 AM and 2 PM, and we would be glad to have you there for as long or short a time as your schedule permits, whenever you show up!

From Lloyd Lee Wilson: Friends may be interested in the following links to issues that will be discussed at NCYM-C Interim Body Meeting at Virginia Beach Friends this Saturday.

Information with schedule, list of agenda items, and directions is available at this link and also as a link from our website (ncymc.org). Additionally, Friends are encouraged to review and consider several documents in advance so that we are better prepared for discernment on these items together.

From Raleigh Bailey: Christian/Muslim supper club.  People from the Epiphany Presbyterian Church and the Divan Center have been meeting for a couple of years for suppers, book discussions, and occasional projects (like helping refugees). They are hoping to expand and are looking for more non-Muslims who would like to participate. Specifically, they are looking for several people who want to participate in a supper club that is specifically to bring Christians and Muslims together. They have three groups meeting at present, usually every other month or so, in one another’s homes.  They observe Halal dietary requirements for these meals.

From Jim Fernandes: October 17th was the very first International Pronouns Day! This day seeks to make asking, sharing, and respecting personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Check out https://www.mypronouns.org to learn more.
