Takoma Park Friends Meeting-Preparative gathered on 1/16/2021 via an audio/video connection.

We heard and discussed queries from Baltimore Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice on meetings for worship.

Tricia Crocker, treasurer, presented the treasurer’s report for the period 12/1/2021 to 1/16/2022 (attached).  We accepted the report.  

We noted the communication from the yearly meeting about the spiritual state of the meeting report and decided to hold a second hour on this topic on Feb 27 on-line, using the queries proposed as a basis.  We assigned roles for preparation of the spiritual state of the meeting report.

We noted that the Adelphi Friends Meeting Peace and Social Concerns Committee will respond to a communication from the Indian Affairs Committee of Baltimore Yearly Meeting transmitting a proposed minute on Indian Boarding Schools and Healing Legislation.

Our outdoor meeting for worship continues on Thursdays, weather permitting, as does the online meeting on Sundays.

We approved the revised contract with the Presbyterian Church concerning use of their space and authorized Adelphi trustees to sign the contract.

We heard and approved these minutes.  We adjourned, to gather next on Feb. 20, 2022, at the rise of meeting, or at the call of the presiding clerk.
