Quakers maintain a tradition of asking probing questions about faith, life, family, and community. This month's query comes from Paul Loomis, a member of the Worship and Ministry committee. 
  • Have you experienced the empty nest; that is, have your children grown up and left home? 
  • What do you remember about it? 
  • Do you have thoughts or recollections about your own leaving-home experience?

Repairs on the meetinghouse have been on-going, and it is looking great. Carolyn Dalton writes, "The flooring has been laid. We are looking forward to installing a new kitchen area and fixing the cracked plaster that resulted from settling due to the bad floor supports." 

Also, the meeting’s minute of thanks was featured in the PYM newsletter

From an article by the Quakers in Britain

Faced with self-isolation and social distancing, Quakers across Britain have begun to meet in new ways. We are keeping the spirit flowing together, and maintaining our communities. Some have likened it to the way Quakers facing persecution centuries ago 'kept the meeting' in remarkable ways.

November was a busy month at our 175-year-old meetinghouse. Doolittle Construction workers completed much needed repairs to the meetinghouse’s failing foundation and floor beams. Nearly one- half of the community room’s floor was removed to enable workers to replace the floor beams, shore-up the column supports and access the foundation.  They also installed moisture barriers in the crawlspace, and laid outdoor drains to provide additional moisture mitigation for the building.

In addition to our regular practice of meeting in person or virtually for quiet worship, Quakers sometimes take part in what is called Worship Sharing.
