One of OMM's seasonal rituals is the annual Christmas post-Meeting for Worship finger-food potluck and sing. This year we'll do this on December 15th about noon, or whenever announcements end. Bring food that can be eaten without plates and silverware (so that clean up will be quick) and instruments, if you wish. Our traditional (not) rendition of "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is always a highlight. This is a very child-friendly event.
Ottawa Monthly Meeting is currently blessed with an abundance of Young Adult Friends.* Many of the YAFs are now meeting for a potluck about once a month. If you self-identify as a YAF and aren't yet connected to this group, ask around on a Sunday or send the webminder an e-mail and I'll put you in touch.
*Quaker-speak for people roughly in their 20's and 30's who have a connection to Quakers.
We welcome everyone to our community. We've recently updated our sign to make that a bit clearer.
Prayer, then, is communion, whether it takes the form of petition, intercession, thanksgiving, or whether it be just the quiet unveiling of the heart to a trusted friend, the outpouring of the soul to the one who is nearest of all.
