Lake Erie Yearly Meeting seeks to promote events that reflect our values and that members will find interesting, useful and/or enriching and inspiring. We host our own online events (see calendar below) and are quite open to co-hosting or helping to promote events organized by Monthly Meetings wishing to share their event beyond their own members.
If you have an event you’d like to have co-hosted or just listed in the LEYM events calendar, please check that your proposed date doesn’t conflict with events already scheduled, and then share your event details using the button below.
Struggling to find the right meeting date for everyone on your committee? Looking for quick feedback on an idea or possible decision your team is contemplating? Consider using LEYM’s free no-registration required Framadate tool which is similar to a Doodle Poll. You can use it to suggest possible dates for a meeting or to gather input on participant preferences prior to making a decision. Quite helpful!

Spiritual Companioning Check-in May 7, 20234:00 pm - 5:30 pm
LEYM Friends engaged or interested 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. As needed, activities may include:
An introduction to the practice for newcomers (or a refresher for any who want it)
A chance to engage in a companioning session with people other than your usual group (we find that we all learn from each other when we cross-fertilize our experiences)
A chance to bring a message or insight from your practice to the group for additional discernment.
An opportunity to share what's working for you and your group
Forming or re-forming new groups
