Takoma Park Friends Meeting-Preparative gathered on 3/19/2023 in the library of the Presbyterian Church, following meeting for worship.

We heard and discussed queries from Baltimore Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice on the Meeting Community.

Tricia Crocker, treasurer, presented the treasurer’s report for the period 12/1/2022 to 3/19/2023 (attached).  We accepted the report.  

We decided to hold business meetings on April 23 and May 28, so as to avoid conflict with Adelphi’s business meetings, and the monthly online meeting on the third Sunday on these months.

We approved the spiritual state of the meeting report (attached), to be transmitted to Adelphi Friends Meeting.

We discussed proposed gifts to Quaker groups, to be considered at first reading next month.

We heard and approved these minutes.  We adjourned, to gather next on April 23, 2023, or at the call of the presiding clerk.
