Spiritual Nurture Groups & Retreat Planning
On Saturday, February 29, beginning with a homemade breakfast by Jim Newby, we will gather to discuss what spiritual nurture groups and retreat opportunities we would like to plan for the coming months. We will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the Fireside Room for breakfast, and then move to the Library for our planning session. We will conclude by 12:00. If you would like to be apart of this planning session, please reserve your place with the office by calling, 513-791-0788 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome to come and share their ideas about retreat themes and small group sharing.

We will study the beginnings of Quakerism in the mid-seventeenth century; the four periods of Quaker history; the genius of the American Quaker, John Woolman; how Quakers worship and the testimonies that they hold dear; the various Quaker educational institutions and umbrella organizations; and Quakers today.

The Traveling Friend
Online Traveling Friend
For more than 50 years, the printed version of The Traveling Friend has been our Meeting’s main mechanism for sharing information about recent events, thought-provoking commentary related to Quakerism, profiles of our new members, and more. We will continue to print this valuable publication, but we are also making an online version available via our website: http://cincinnatifriends.org/traveling-friend.
The online version of The Traveling Friend lets you read articles almost as soon as they are written—you don’t have to wait until the next quarterly edition of the printed version comes out. When you subscribe to the online version, you’ll receive an email notification as soon as a new post is available. In addition, you can share comments about any article and engage in a dialog with the author and other readers.
We hope that both methods of communication will help foster community among all our members and attenders. If you would like to share your own articles, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or put them in The Traveling Friend mailbox in the meetinghouse library.
