Rich,
Please let QQ know how this goes. It sounds wonderful, but my health prevents me from coming.
Thank you though,
Jan Lyn

Bill,
I will mention your offer to the actual organizers of this meeting for worship. Assuming it is vital enough to continue, I'm sure they'll be glad to provide you with contact information and the schedule of future meetings. Thanks for your willingness to include us on the Friends Christian Renewal Web Page.

One Friend wrote to ask me what "Friends Seminary" is. I replied as follows:
The name "Friends Seminary" is a bit of an anachronism. It is a very old Quaker-affiliated school that dates back to the time when "seminary" meant simply school and not necessarily a school for training pastors.

It is currently owned by the New York Quarterly Meeting and occupies space adjacent to the 15th Street Monthly Meeting's meetinghouse, with a lot of shared uses (not without tension) between the school and the meeting. The seminary has classes from First grade through 12th grade, charges a very hefty tuition, and has only a very few Quaker students. It does try to encourage racial, ethnic, and economic diversity through scholarships, etc. but is nevertheless regarded - - to the distress of some of us - - as an "elite" private school in Manhattan.

The school generously made space available to us for our meeting, probably by arrangement with the office of New York Quarterly Meeting.

If you like, you can visit the school's website at http://www.friendsseminary.org. Fifteenth Street Meeting's website is at http://fifteenth.quaker.org/

That's way too far for me, but it's good to know this is starting. I would be glad to include it on the Friends Christian Renewal Web page. I would need to know just what you want the listing to say, including contact information.

This looks so amazing. I hope you will continue planning things like this and inviting folks. I hope to be in NY this fall, and would love to visit. x Blessings and love from Greensboro, NC. Let us know (those of us who cannot attend) how it goes!
