  • Michigan Friends Center GPQM Retreat - Weathering the Storm
    October 29, 2022  10:00 am - 4:00 pm

    Join us on Saturday, October 29, 2022, at the Michigan Friends Center near Chelsea for Weathering the Storm, a one-day, in-person retreat offered by Green Pastures Quarterly Meeting for Friends from throughout Michigan. For more than two years we have had very few opportunities to worship, learn, and connect in-person with Friends beyond our local meetings and worship groups. Weathering the Storm celebrates GPQM’s return to the Friends Center and provides us with an opportunity to reflect upon this storm that we have weathered together. Who have we become? What has been lost? Gained? In what ways have we been faithful in the storm? Maryann Concannon and April Allison will serve as retreat leaders. Maryann will offer a reflection on Jonah as he faced into the storm. In addition to worship in the manner of Friends, there will be an opportunity for solitude—walking meditation, journaling, and artwork—followed by a time of sharing. The retreat will last from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Michigan Friends Center, 7748 Clark Lake Rd, Chelsea. Friends will bring their own lunch; coffee and tea will be provided. Masks are strongly recommended indoors, and we will follow up-to-date CDC recommendations regarding whether they will be required. We will not be able to provide childcare during the retreat. This retreat is free to participants, but registration with gpqmcommunications@gmail.com by October 25 is requested. Just drop us a note with participant names and email addresses.

  • Spiritual Companioning Check-in
    November 6, 2022  4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    LEYM Friends engaged in the practice of Spiritual Companioning gather online at 4pm on the first Sunday of odd-numbered months for informal exchange of experiences, questions and opportunities to practice with others. The Zoom access link is here. Meeting ID: 864 1546 3389 Passcode: 966818
    As needed, activities can include: 
    •  Opportunities for share what's working for you and your groups 
    •  Refresher skill-building 
    •  Forming or re-forming new groups 
    •  Introductions to other spiritual companions and groups 
    • Ideas for integrating the practice in your life and your monthly meeting 
    •  Introductory info for inquirers
    Since the practice of Spiritual Companioning was introduced in Fall, 2020 during LEYM's Spiritual Formation retreat, four of us have volunteered to organize and publicize events at which the two dozen or so companions can self-organize and mutually encourage others in growing our experience and skill.  We are learners just like you, and would welcome others to join us in this organizing work.  If that interests you, please contact  Barbara LeSage (North Columbus), Cassie Cammann (Ann Arbor), Mark Hoover (Ann Arbor), Joann Neuroth (Red Cedar) jneuroth@gmail.com
