A brief Missive from the Quarterly Clerk

For this upcoming Haddonfield Quarterly Meeting, our Programming will be entitled, “One Quarter, One Pamphlet.” The hope is to give as many Friends as who are able, a chance to read, contemplate, and then share their thoughts, insights, and wisdom together when next we meet. The idea being that, as we all read the same pamphlet, our unique lights will illuminate corners we may not be able to see on our own, and thus we will grow in understanding both of our spirits, and each other.

I first read the pamphlet, Living in Dark Times, when I was at the lovely Atlantic City Area Monthly Meeting (ACAMM) for our last Quarterly Meeting picnic. I am a voracious reader and the dramatic cover of the pamphlet drew me in. “Besides,” I thought to myself, “with all that was going on in the world these seemed like dark times indeed.” The Pamphlet immediately began talking about something I have had a sense of for a long time; that of being, adrift, unable to have even productive conversations about some of the huge issues that face friends today, and more importantly how to live in a world that doesn't have easy answers to some very hard questions. Rex Ambler goes to Willam Penn for advice and then helps bring those sage words alive. Read it for yourselves Friends, and see if you too come to a refreshed perspective as I did. I do not want to give too much away. I want Friends to read and let their unique life experiences and the universal inner light illuminate wisdom that they can share. I hope to see you all in February at Cropwell Monthly Meeting on Saturday February 17th. We are asking Friends to register so that we may best accommodate the conversation.

Yours Most Sincerely
Christopher Pensiero.

Please join us for our Winter Quarterly Meeting on
February 17th 2024 at Cropwell Friends Meeting 
 810 S Cropwell Rd, Marlton, NJ 08053

In-Person Worship will take place from 10:00-10:30. This will be followed by a hybrid group discussion of Rex Ambler's pamphlet - "Living in Dark Times." We are anticipating that it will take a minute to set up the zoom equipment so light refreshments will be provided while we spend some time in fellowship. We will break for lunch following the discussion and return at approximately 1pm for a very important Quarterly Meeting with Attention to Business.

5 pamphlets will be provided for each Meeting paid for by the Quarter.
