What can we offer in addition to “Simple buildings, plain pews, unadorned windows, and silence”
Friends, as we search for Light outside and within, as we turn to the cold months and expectantly encounter the diverse ways we celebrate Holy Days, the Seasons, or Christmas, we have an opportunity before the New Year to share greetings, our news, and upcoming events in a December South Jersey Quarters newsletter. Also, if there are concerns rising, histories becoming unveiled, or events needing documentation that might be a featured on our SJQ website – that too is a welcome opportunity. Personally, I find this transitioning dimmer season to be the renewing opportunity for us to share and recollect some of the joys that are drawing us together. Looking ahead, how can we at the South Jersey Quarter promote, develop, or assist in some of thee programming that your Meeting is envisioning in 2024? We have an opportunity before the New Year to share greetings, our news, and upcoming events in a December South Jersey Quarters newsletter. Please make your submissions now.
How is your tradition informed by Indigeneity, Quakerism, ‘old world’ notions, or multiculturalism? What did you like to experience in your past? What traditions or stories/narratives/artistry do you seek to maintain? Do you have reflections for how you experienced the Autumn Feast? What do you call it? How has it changed? Are you experimental? Do you follow traditions or break grounds for new ones? Friends want to know.
