friends Digest, Vol 74, Issue 1

Posted by admin on Apr 2, 2010 in Children's Activities, Meeting Events

Dear Friends,

This week after rise of Meeting, we will have our annual Easter Egg Hunt. Please contact Robin W if you want to participate (eggs or children!).

Immediately following, we will have our Gary Briggs Memorial Hike at the NC Arboretum. This will be a very easy, family-friendly one-mile interpretive trail around the grounds. The Arboretum’s facilities will be open as well, so this will be a good opportunity to become acquainted with one of our area’s great natural treasures. There is an $8 per vehicle fee. We will plan to be back at the Meetinghouse by 3:45.

Also coming up on third Sunday, 4/18, is a potluck-party to celebrate how we love and value our f/Friend Phil Neal who is moving his membership to Swannanoa Valley Meeting. Food and festivities will begin around 11:30 a.m. after announcements and rise of Meeting. You may have special experiences with Phil to share aloud with him and assembled Friends. We’ll also have a scrapbook for giving Phil pictures, mementoes, or notes which express our personal connections and appreciation. These can be brought with you or mailed in advance to Joy Gossett, 15 Westwood Road, Asheville, NC 28804.

Best wishes,

Children’s RE for First Day School, March 7th

Posted by admin on Mar 6, 2010 in Children's Activities, Meeting Events, religious education

Our Children’s RE group, is covering the New Testament as it pertains to our position on Faith as Quakers, as well as from a historical perspective, this Spring Session. Tomorrow, March 7th, , we will be talking about the Sermon on the Mount, and we will be constructing a model of the scene, with the Mount, and also a lake and desert, which will figure in subsequent lessons. This will be a really fun interactive hands-on event, modelling landscape, buildings, boats, and little little people, which we anticipate will be tremendous fun for all! (As well as being informative and thoughtful!) We hope that those of you with children will be able to bring them for this wonderful class, while joining us for silent worship.
Peace, Rylin
