More details about Spring Gathering! May 14-16, 2021

clerk@ithacamonthlymeeting.org
 

Friends,

Spring Gathering 2021 preparations continue!

Our theme this year is represented by an image. It shows the ways that racial justice, climate justice, and economic justice intersect.

We're hoping that an advantage of holding the gathering by Zoom means that some Friends who've never been to Spring Gathering can join us.

Tell other Friends in your Meeting, too!


Here's the link to the registration form.  Please register by Wednesday, May 12.

Additional reminders and more information to come.

Quaker Lunch on May 6 at 12 noon

Liam Murphy
 

There will be fellowship over lunch for Quaker men and those who don’t mind talking with them TODAY (Thursday) at noon. The link is in the Meeting calendar.  I generally have not been sending out reminders …

 

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend because of the needs of my office … but others should feel free to attend!

 

For folks who are interested in such gatherings, I’d be interested in hearing from people who have attended or would like to attend about whether we should be changing the time … all suggestions welcome!

 

Best, Liam

Friends, due to vacationing (yay!) the newsletter is coming along a little late this month. But I’m ready if you are. Please send me your contributions before the end of the day Thursday, and I should be able to turn things around fairly soon after that… certainly before Sunday.

 

Thank you for your patience.

COMBINED May-June Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business MAY 23

clerk@ithacamonthlymeeting.org
 

To keep us all on our toes (and to avoid some conflicting events), there will be NO Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business on the 2nd Sundays in May (May 9) or June (June 13). Instead, we will have a combined Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business on Sunday, May 23 at 12:30pm via Zoom.

If your committee has business brewing for this Mune (or Jay, if you'd rather) Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business that you think may not be on my radar, please send me an email and let me know so that I can plan.

Thanks!

4. Christ has Come to Teach Us Himself


 Here are the links from prior videos in this series:







Where is God in this picture? God is all over the place. God is up there, down here, inside my skin and out. God is the web, the energy, the space, the light ...revealed in that singular, vast net of relationship that animates everything that is. . . .
  Barbara Brown Taylor

The only way out and through—for either side of any dualism ...—is a kind of universal forgiveness of Reality for being what it is; it thus becomes the bonding glue of grace which heals all the separations ...  Richard Rohr


A Thank You from QuakerSpeak

The team approach, plus your skills, whatever they may be, will aid this initiative. Please register in order to receive the Zoom link and support materials.

I like trees that seem like basic green leafy trees but secretly have a flamboyant side that they only show off in early spring. I hope everyone is having a pleasant spring and that you're getting vaccinated if you can.

Where is God in this picture? God is all over the place. God is up there, down here, inside my skin and out. God is the web, the energy, the space, the light ...revealed in that singular, vast net of relationship that animates everything that is. . . .
  Barbara Brown Taylor

The only way out and through—for either side of any dualism ...—is a kind of universal forgiveness of Reality for being what it is; it thus becomes the bonding glue of grace which heals all the separations ...  Richard Rohr


Invitation from the Peace & Social Justice Committee

Elizabeth Schneider
 

The Peace and Social Justice Committee is an open committee, which means that participation is open to any Friend who wishes to be a part of it.  Participation does not go through the Nominating Committee process.  All are welcome at our meetings, which are held on the third Sunday of the month.  We are meeting this coming Sunday, April 18 at 12:30.  Of course, at this time, we are meeting via Zoom.
 
Please join us and see if this is a committee you would like to be part of.  At recent meetings we have discussed:  continuing our work with the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) which keeps us abreast of matters coming before Congress; following the reorganization of the Ithaca Police Department and the Tompkins County Sheriff's Office; as well as other issues.  We each bring our concerns, and as a group we decide how to focus our energies.  If you have questions about the Committee or want the Zoom address, please contact Elizabeth at 351-0057, or e-mail her at neschneid@....
