"Does anyone know if the Center for Plain Living is still around? I am considering attending the FGC gathering in Toledo, OH summer of 2018, and would love to visit folks there (in Barnesville). If anyone has connections to the center or…"
I work 3rd day through 7th day, closing shift, but I'm a nightowl anyway. Hmm,a walk in the forest sounds nice, especially for an urbanite. The closest I get to animals is my 3 cats. I was drawn to the Friends by silence, simplicity, peace, and nonviolence. What about thee? Enjoy your chores. :-) blessings. FRIENDSAM
Friend Kristen: I work for Half Price Books in Lynnwood. I have several musical specialties: piano, guitar, vocal, and I Play a mean tamborine and kazoo! I've always loved liturgical music. I admire teachers. I don't have the patience for it except at the college level. By the way, I'm on Facebook.
Just a quick note in regarding your question about the Gathering. I posted a comment in response to Isabel's question about what the Gathering is. But I should clarify to you that I am not classic plain dressing, just "modern" plain.
I did see other modern plain dressers last year, but I don't recall any who dress with bonnets. But there were a lot of people there, so I could have missed some.
Thank you so much, Kristen! I am actually a chirch musician, and I attend St. Hilda & St. Patrick. I am, however, incorporating Quaker worship and priniciples into my faith journey. I like the silence and commitment to peace rhat the Friends offer. Do you go to meeting where you live? It might be fun to meet for coffee sometime. Blessings. FRIENDSAM.
