Resources for Ministry and Nurture

Ministry and Nurture of LEYM will be hosting sessions of a Clerks’ Chat via Zoom. We invite Monthly Meeting Clerks, Assistant Clerks, and Worship Group Conveners to join us for any or all of the 1 ½ hour sessions. These will be a time of fellowship and informal conversations on topics of interest and concern to those attending at each session.

If you have questions or would like to participate, you may contact Shelley Kotz via sh.s3ktz@gmail.com


LEYM Annual Queries

Each year LEYM’s Ministry & Nurture Committee prepares a set of queries for the consideration of meetings. The M&N Committee invites each meeting to consider the queries and to develop a written response that describes the insights arrived at during its consideration. Meetings are requested to send this to Flo Friender quakerflo@comcast.net by January 15, 2023. These queries, along with supplemental readings, have been sent to LEYM clerks of monthly meetings and conveners of worship groups.

  • The 2022 Queries (see more details here):
    • In what ways has our Meeting been affected by the turmoil of the world around us?
    • How might I use my own gifts from Spirit in responding to these new realities?

We hope that all of you will remember that the Ministry and Nurture Committee is available all year long. If there is a way that we can be of help to you, please reach out to us. The contact info for the co-clerks is given below along with email addresses for all of the committee member.

With deep gratitude for all the work you do in your meetings.
