Annual Sessions Registration Now Open

LEYM 2021: Healing Through Truth – https://leym.org/annual/
Quakers affiliated with Lake Erie Yearly Meeting gather annually for fellowship, worship, to conduct business and to see how the Spirit moves among us. This year, from Wednesday July 28 – Sunday Aug 1 LEYM Friends will gather online via Zoom.  The Program Committee has prepared a wonderful program for us, with expanded workshop offerings (9 to choose from!) and the addition of morning and evening worship opportunities. Our keynote speaker is Paula Palmer (Boulder Friends Meeting), who will be addressing the topic “From Truth to Healing with Native Peoples.” Paula will also be presenting a workshop entitled “Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change” that has received really great reviews in the past. We’ll also have Bible Study, Worship Sharing, Organizational Interest Groups and more. We are particularly looking forward to raising the bushel again to see some of the amazing light of Friends at our annual Friendly Talent Show on Saturday night. You won’t want to miss it!

Registration is requested prior to July 23. Visit https://leym.org/annual/ to register. Financial contributions sent to the treasurer are strictly voluntary, so “pay as you are led”. Contributions will help offset the costs associated with hosting the event. See the latest issue of the LEYM Bulletin for helpful event details, and visit  the annual sessions webpage at https://leym.org/annual/ for everything you need to know to stay informed about our annual gathering.

Your meeting may be wrestling with matters related to virtual and hybrid gatherings. A workshop was held on Saturday May 7, and we returned to the questions about navigating the new normal through the ongoing pandemic. https://www.pym.org/workshop-on-gathering-virtually/
