Quaker Bible Study Session Starting Sunday, January 26

Unlike other Bible Studies in this one we are encouraged to ask questions to see if and how the chosen short passage relates to us and our lives. There are 5 questions to apply to each passage.
The six sessions will be held intermittently with The Christian Contemplative series over the next three months.  The exact schedule will be available on Sunday at the first session.  Friends may attend one or as many sessions as  sessions as they would like.
Please click on this link to get more information, or just join us Sunday and a hard copy of information will be given out.
Bring whatever version of the Bible you prefer to use, or you can also borrow the version of your choice from the OMM library which is where we will be meeting.
[Webminders note:  we weren't given a time, but we think it's 9 am.]

Yearly Retreat Coming Up Soon

Our annual reatreat is coming up quite quickly.  Here are a few details--more will be coming.  If you want to contact AREO to register or ask questions, send a message to webminder.ottawafriends@gmail.com and we'll pass it along.

Our annual Winter Retreat is a wonderful time for reflection and renewal. This tradition allows us space to know ourselves and our F/friends better. Throughout the weekend there will be time for deep listening, for speaking, and for sharing with each other. We will have time to consider where we are—navigating from here to there—and imagining a Spirit-filled future. Possibilities include resting in a quiet space as well as role-playing, creating art, reading and journalling. Media include live guitar music and short video.

Here’s a brief prospectus of our weekend schedule:

Friday evening (January 31st) on this evening, we often have the chance to hear from each person and have the sense of our part in the circle

Young Adult Friend Gatherings

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.
