November 2021
Schedule changes in November

Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business will be November 21 at 12:30, via Zoom. Please adjust mark your calendars.

Two other changes:

  • Quaker Speak will be on Nov 7 and Nov 14, at 9:15-10 am

QuakerSpeak Discussion Series, Fall 2021
 
QuakerSpeak discussions are happening again.  We watch a QuakerSpeak video together and then share whatever thoughts arise.  

Generally, the discussion is less formal than Worship Sharing but more measured and thoughtful than a typical conversation. Available either in person at the Third Street Meetinghouse or on zoom (hybrid gathering) from 9:15 to 10am (allowing travel time to in-person worship at 10:30). The zoom link is available in the event on the IMM calendar on our website: IthacaMonthlyMeeting.org, or watch for an announcement on the first and third Saturday of the month on the IMM Announcements listserv.

Coming up next:
  1. What are the Quaker SPICES?
  2. What are your favorite Quaker words or passages?
  3. A few favorite aspects of Quaker Faith and Practice
  4. Changing Course for the Kingdom of Heaven
