Deborah Fisch has been a regular and beloved visitor to CYM at our annual gathering for many years now. This year she was our Quaker Study leader, giving a series of 5 daily talks titled The Joy of Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business. She travelled to Prince Edward Island from her home in Iowa, US, and ministered from a place of great love in spite of failing health; and she received much love from us. She shared many stories and insights from her many years of clerking for her Monthly Meeting and Yearly Meeting.
Canadian Yearly Meeting was blessed to be able to receive Deborah‘s ministry this summer.
