Friends in Vancouver, BC, are continuing to worship together online using Zoom technology at 10:30 AM PDT. We ceased meeting in person back in March, but the life of the Meeting continues. Many of us miss meeting in person in our Meetinghouse, but have found that Zoom allows us to welcome into worship a number of Friends who have not been able to join us physically, sometimes for a number of years. Several Friends who have moved to a Gulf Island or Vancouver Island in recent years are able to re-join us in worship. It has been a blessing to re-connect with these Friends. It has also allowed us to connect with a few Friends in the Yukon, as they are under our care. Canadian Yearly Meeting is spread thinly across a vast territory and this current pandemic has spurred us into making our electronic connections more robust.
