Sunday Morning (raining again…or still), A Memorial Meeting provided opportunity to Celebrate the Grace of God in the life of Friends who had died in the past year. Extended worship gave time to remember Friends from both Half Yearly Meetings.
Meeting for Worship, with all gathered, brought our time as a joint Half Yearly Meeting to an end. We were blessed by the presence of children in our midst, and at the rise of Meeting, Friends lingered, not yet ready to say goodbye.
…And yet goodbyes are necessary. Many Friends expressed a wish to hold a joint HYM again next spring…so good to be together.
