Chico Friends Meeting recently hosted a gathering of a half dozen nearby meetings for a one day event of worship, activities, lunch on the lawn, and getting to know our "neighbors." Twenty five friends from nearby meetings, and another twenty five from Chico, enjoyed a day of enthusiastic sharing, spiritual depth, and fun. Many of us were eager to do this again, and we encourage all meetings to consider this sort of gathering. Given distances in the west, quarterly and yearly meetings may be difficult to attend, but a low organization, one-day gathering of folks an hour or two away, is a good alternative. Get in touch with us if you want more details on how it worked. And share with us your own experience!
