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. Upcoming sessions are scheduled for Saturday, December 4th 2021 from 10-11:30 am and Friday, February 4th 2022 from 7-8:30 pm.

If you have questions or would like to participate, you may contact Becky Morehouse more2becky@aol.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, 2022. These queries, along with supplemental readings, have been sent to LEYM clerks of monthly meetings and conveners of worship groups.

  • The 2021 Queries:
    • In what ways do I experience a sense of spirit in my life?
    • What is the role of the meeting in nourishing depth of spirit among us?

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.
