Takoma Park Friends Meeting-Preparative gathered on 6/20/2021 through a Zoom audio/video connection.

We heard queries from Baltimore Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice on home and family.  We heard that the queries are helpful, although as written have to be broadened to include each person’s situation.

Tricia Crocker, treasurer, presented the budget-year-to-date treasurer’s report for the period 12/1/2020 to 6/20/2021 (attached). We accepted the report.

The spiritual state of the meeting report has been forwarded to Adelphi Friends Meeting.

We considered proposed amounts for giving to community groups.  We decided on first reading to fund four groups at $150 each: CASA de Maryland, Maryland Alliance for Justice Reform, Scholar Chips, and Shepherd’s Table, and perhaps to add another group.

We discussed returning to in-person activities.  We decided to hold second hours on June 27, July 25, and Aug 29 in person.

We heard and approved these minutes.  We adjourned, to gather next on July 18, 2021, at 1:30, or at the call of the presiding clerk.
