On Saturday evening, August 9th , everyone at CYM will come together to be welcomed, to be seen, and see who is here from where. We also will “make a joyful noise” together! To include our F/friends who are not present and to learn more about one another we will watch a PowerPoint presentation showing all of the Monthly Meetings in CYM where they, including all of the Worship Groups, hold Meeting for Worship plus selected photos of meeting life from all across Canada. ‘First-timers’ — young AND old — will receive a special welcome. Quaker music talents will shine. Group fun will help Friends of all ages connect or reconnect with people in their own Meetings and from across the country.
We cannot do this without your help
Only YOU, as Meetings and Worship Groups across Canada can provide the photos needed to make this vision work!
Caroline Balderston Parry is coordinating this Saturday night gathering at CYM, as a visual and musical “Community Celebration.” Please send her:
1. A clear photo of the place that your MM, and any additional Worship Groups, currently meet.
2. A few pictures of life at your Meeting — new members or babies, a special event, marriage or wonderful gathering.
3. Offers to play music or lead a song or group game (short and snappy).
4. “Other news” that your MM would like to share…
While, due to time constraints, we may not be able to use everything on Saturday night, we will be VERY pleased to have your offers and look forward to finding other times and places to share them.
Please send digital photos and ensure that folks in them have given their permission for public display and use, including on our website. No identifying names will be attached.
