Greetings, Friends!   

Chapter 5 of Minding the Light: Our Collective Journal is now available online and also attached as a PDF file below.


For this chapter, we invited Friends to respond to the query, "When has God made you laugh?"  We received 8 personal stories, an original painting from Melanie Weidner (on loan), a photo essay and several original still photos.


Minding the Light is a bimonthly publication of West Hills Friends, a Quaker meeting in Portland, Oregon.  Using the guidelines of "worship sharing," we invite members and attenders to reflect on a specific query for each chapter.  Earlier queries have been, When did you first recognize the Light?,  When has your longing for God's Presence been unfulfilled?When have you experienced God’s presence in nature? and When have you experienced God’s presence through a stranger? 


We invite you to read these stories for yourself.  We would love to hear your response.  There is a link to the website below, along with a links to Chapter 4 of Minding the Light in PDF format.
