Presiding Clerk and Quaker Discussion Coordinator Nominations

Yesterday I announced that I will be resigning from my positions as presiding clerk and Quaker discussion coordinator, effective June 24th (June Worshipful Business Meeting). We need nominations for people to fill these positions. We will be using our Quaker discussion on May 20th to discuss the nominations. If you have any nominations, please contact the current Quaker discussion coordinator (me, presiding_clerk at takomaparkfriends dot org).

Please note that the Quaker discussion coordinator position is more than just running the adult education discussions. Since we laid down the M&O committee, all of our committee work is done on an ad hoc basis in Quaker discussion. So this position is additionally the clerk-of-all-committees. Of course, this is not set in stone. If changing the way we handled committee work would better fit the skills of people willing to work for the meeting, it is more important to get the work done than to do it the way we’ve been doing it.

Quaker Discussion, 4/15

The Quaker discussion for Sunday, April 15th will be a continuation of our reading of the Spirit of Quakers, by Geoffrey Durham. We will read a short section of the book and then discuss it. You don’t need to have a copy of the book to participate, and as always, the discussion is open to everyone.
