Three Years Ago
From the Minutes, October 2016
Mike Ayars, clerk, shared a query from Britain Yearly Meeting’s Faith and Practice:
“Rejoice in the presence of children and young people in your meeting and recognize the gifts they bring. Remember that the meeting as a whole shares a responsibility for every child in its care. Seek for them as for yourself a full development of God’s gifts and the abundant life Jesus tells us can be ours."
Chris Mahon summarized the recent Youth Programs Visioning Session at PYM. There was an appreciation about our intergenerational activities. The one idea that surfaced was to ask young people what they believe, or what God means to them. Stewardship and community need to be emphasized. PYM wants to address how to include young people in the life of each meeting. Families need to take the lead in bringing their kids to Meeting. Mike is planning a called meeting for worship when Young Friends are here for their Christmas gathering and make a special effort for our middle and high school students to attend.
And, our meeting house will be hosting Young Friends from across our Yearly Meeting, this year, from the 27 to 30 of December 2019!
