Northside Friends Annual Retreat

Northside Quakers gathered at the home of Beth Burbank and Bill Esler for their annual fall retreat held on October 24th.  The stimulating process helped Friends to collectively reflect upon the many changes that have occurred in the past year.  Several significant moves of members led the Meeting to understand itself in a period of transition.  This has led to a streamlining of our funtions, paring down our committee strucutre, taking into consideration Quakers historic testimony on Simplicity.  The retreat led us to focus

upon who we are and want to be for each other, the community and the world.  The Meeting created a living documemnt to guide us in the following months as we continue to absorb change.  A next significant step will be moving our website to a new platform sponsored by the Quaker Cloud, a service of Friends General Conference. 

We move forward with reverence for one another and a desire to follow Truth where it leads us.
