  1. Dear Friends,

    I hope you have a very enjoyable and enriching weekend. I’m interested to see that you will be holding an on-line Meeting for Worship, as this is something which has just been suggested in Oxford Quaker Meeting, as a way of including Friends who are living overseas and can’t get to meeting. If anyone would have time to let us know how you planned the meeting and how it went, we’d be really interested to hear and it would help us to think about what we can do ourselves. Thank you! In Friendship, Lis
