Takoma Park Friends Meeting-Preparative gathered on 3/4/2018 at the Dance Exchange in Takoma Park, Maryland, having rescheduled the originally planned 2/25/2018 meeting. We heard queries and advices from the 2013 draft Baltimore Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice on caring for one another. We heard of how it is more difficult to let others know of our needs than to reach out to others; asking for help can feel like a sign of weakness, and can seem inappropriate when others have greater needs.
