If you are near Atlanta, look for Mark Wukta of Atlanta Friends Meeting.  He's of like mind with us here in NCYMC.

I do live in Georgia, so hopefully I will have the chance to visit them. Thank you very much.

And also thank you, Richard.

Hi, Dianne -


I don't know where you are in the Southeast, but in addition to NCYM-C Friends, I'd also encourage you to check out Chattahoochee Friends, near Atlanta, Georgia. My family and I had the chance to visit them this last Sunday, and it was a blessed time. A very special group of people!

I attended Orange Grove Meeting in Pasadena for about 5 months and it was wonderful, but I have recently relocated to the Southeast. So I am fairly new to Quaker meetings, but I find it such a good fit for me. I'd like to find out where the North Carolina conservative groups are located.

Thank you for writing on this subject. To me it is an essential element which we need in place.
