Weekly Announcements for November 18, 2022
Please note, the Weekly Announcements will be on hiatus next week while our office is closed in observation of the Thanksgiving holiday.
Are Your Meeting Contacts Up To Date?
Each January, the BYM Office collects updated information about each Local Meeting's Officers and Clerks. This information is published on the BYM website and in the Yearbook at the end of each year. However, we know that many Meetings have Clerking terms that do not correspond to the calendar year!
Now, Meetings can update their contact information with the Yearly Meeting at their own convenience. When your new term year begins or information changes mid-term, Meetings can submit new or updated information on the BYM website. The BYM Office will also continue to send annual information requests in January. Your help in keeping the Yearly Meeting records up-to-date allows Friends from across BYM to stay in touch with our big, beloved community. Thank you.
Sabrina McCarthy: Making My Own Quaker-Adjacent Community
Earlier this summer, Sabrina McCarthy (Friends Meeting of Washington) was featured in a Quaker Speak video about her journey with Quakerism. Sabrina has partnered with other women in the Friends community to create a BIPOC women’s group that meets online.
FUM's Generous Congregations Workshop
Cultivating generosity is an essential piece to individual and communal faithfulness. When it comes to financial generosity, it is also a necessary ingredient in carrying out the mission God is giving your community of faith. Join FUM's Colin Saxton for a conversation and focus on some of the best practices you can implement to nurture generosity and faithful stewardship in your fellowship.
Tomorrow! George Lakey at Homewood
The Baltimore Peacebuilders invite one and all to participate in George Lakey: Lessons for Today from a Lifetime of Nonviolent Activism on Sun, Nov. 20th at 3:15pm. The event will be in-person and via Zoom. Friends are also invited to join before George's lecture for the monthly Baltimore Black Lives Matter Interfaith Coalition Rally.
Plant Based Holiday Meals
Check out these holiday meal suggestions from the members of the Working Group on Right Relationship with Animals. Friends who are new to plant-based cooking might find themselves stumped when planning for the holidays. It turns out that not only does the joy of the season not depend on eating a turkey or a lamb but going the plant-based route can also be quite a time and money saver.
Annual Session Bookstore Seeks Books & Vendors!
In 2023, the Annual Session Bookstore will offer a Used Book Section. To help with gathering books, Friends are asked to search your shelves for new or like new books. You can bring them to any Interim Meeting or drop them by the BYM Office. The Bookstore is also in search of 2023 arts and crafts vendors.
