Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
Any prospects of a virtual outreach through Friends Education in providing a virtual "school" for reaching non-Friends and Friends?
We are a very small meeting that has been growing lately due to a lot of little things. A couple of younger Friends--late 20s--joined meeting and brought in new energy. We put them to work. Jennifer took over our membership list and turned it into an email list. We also keep a larger email list which includes Quakers from out of town and people who have expressed some interest in Quakers but don't come to meeting. We have started a once monthly late afternoon meeting to which we invite all those on the larger list. Since it is just once a month, not once a week, and we invite Friends from farther afield this makes it a little special and so more inviting to people who are interested in Quakerism but not excited enough to make the commitment to come weekly. Jeff, our other young Friend, has been active in finding us a place to hold our once a month meetings and on our relations with other churches in the area. Having the new list gives me an excuse to mention it to folk I think might be interested as I run into them around town.
Hi, I think I may be a Quaker and your friendly message sounded like a good place for me to say hi. Is there a newbie zone for people that agree with the philosophy but haven't actually met any Quakers yet? This is my first contact. :D
