*************************************************************************************

From Judy Purvis: 

We hope as many of you as possible can come to the Worship and Ministry forum on Friday, NOVEMBER 8th at 7:00 PM. Lisa Lundeen will talk about her role as a chaplain at Wesley Long Cancer Center and her support of patients and families facing difficult diagnoses. We will provide desserts and childcare. This will be a good chance to get to know Lisa and learn more about what she has to offer the meeting.

From Janet Nagel: For many years I’ve had a tape recording of a talk by Jan de Hartog at a dowsing conference circa 1985 in which he describes how he researched early Quaker history by reading Quaker journals and what he gleaned from those journals about what early Friends learned from the Indians about how to communicate with trees, as well as his experience using that information to himself communicate with trees.

The 127-minute talk is informative and engaging and characterized by his usual irreverence. I’ve finally been able to digitize it and can provide a copy on a thumb drive. Please let me know if you’d like one.

From Ministry and Worship: for the next few months, Worship and Ministry Committee will be holding a Quaker Q&A on the first Sunday of September, October, November, and December. We will meet on the sunporch after Meeting for Worship and an opportunity for people to grab a snack. Our goal is to provide a time when we can go beyond the Designated Friend questions (primarily for newcomers) to allow us to explore informally questions about Friends faith and practice. We encourage folks old and new to join us. Childcare will be available. 

***********************************************************************************

Query 5: Do we regularly attend our meetings for business, and are they held in a spirit of love, understanding, and forbearance? Do we seek the right course of action in humble submission to the Authority of Truth and in the patient search for a sense of unity under Divine Guidance?

******************************************************************

FEMAP, a Friends non-profit in High Point, would greatly appreciate donations of shampoo, Tylenol, standard Band-aids, and wide-toothed combs (3/$1 at Roses). Please place them in the collection box at the meeting house. Thank you!

******************************************************************

Don’t forget donations for First Friends Food Bank (please no boxed items such as pasta,

because they attract bugs and other nasties). FEMAP would greatly appreciate donations
