FGC Spiritual Deeping Library has many events throughout the year. This Fall, Melissa Preast will be co-facilitating an e-retreat with Jaya Kersemyer Bone on the topic of welcoming people into our Meetings.
Welcoming is not the work of one or two people at the door. It takes a whole meeting to create a culture that is ready to attentively and joyfully bring newcomers into the fold of the community. This Weaving a Wider Welcome topic offers you an opportunity to explore best practices for bringing newcomers into the life of the meeting, with special emphasis on welcoming people of color, families with young children, and LGBTQIA folks.
