Sunday "Meeting Warm-Ups," from 9:00am until 10:00 will resume.The current list of topics is:
September 24--Walking the Talk for Indigenous Peoples: Watch a short documentary on the May Pilgrimage for Indigenous Rights (pfir.ca), participate in a sharing circle, and consider writing a postcard in support of Bill C-262, a proposal to implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in Canada.
October 1st and 8th--Singing
October 15th--No warmup due to Quaker Studies event.
Everyone is welcome.
Check back frequently--we'll try to keep this list up-to-date. If you have ideas or feedback, contact the Adult Religious Education Committee.
The Quaker Studies event typically happens during the annual Canadian Yearly Meeting each August. Because this was a "fallow year" for CYM, OMM has the pleasure of hosting it. Although the basic details are below, a more detailed program and a registration form are attached below. (You may need to hit "read more.") Additional details are also available on the CYM website.
We tried a new streamlined approach to the Great Glebe Garage Sale this year. We recruited LOTS of volunteers and split our activities into two -- one group, at our Friend's driveway down the street, some sold a small collection of the usual "stuff" and collected a good bundle of cash for our charities.
At the Meetinghouse itself, another group focused on being more of a welcoming oasis, with live music on the front porch. We also had some organic seedlings, lovely terrariums, maple syrup, tiny delicious snacks for sale, & complimentary fruit water. It was fun working together, plus we earned a good sum to split between the Centretown Emergency Food Bank and Baja Lempo child care centre.
Lots of folks enjoyed the shady forecourt or peaceful meeting room indoors (or just used our accessible bathroom) -- we hope some of our ~40 inquiring visitors will return to experience Meeting for Worship on a Sunday morning! We felt very happy to have had such varied activities (even dancing!) AND pleasure, while welcoming so many neighbours--and a lot less stress than in previous years!
Where any have received offence from any other, first to speak privately to the party concerned, and endeavour reconciliation between themselves; and not to whisper or aggravate matters against them behind their backs, to the making parties, and the breach wider.
