2018 South Central Yearly Meeting Sessions - 29 March to 1 April 2018 - Greene Family Camp, Bruceville, TX
In early 2017, as Bayou Quarterly Meeting began to consider a theme for the adult program at SCYM-2018, we realized how discouraged many of us felt with the results of the 2016 presidential election. When the year progressed into floods of negativity and inaction by Congress, the spirits of Americans seemed at an all-time low. Thus, we felt led to present a different kind of program to our fellow Quakers – one that encourages PLAY!
“Lift Hearts and Spirits to the Light”
Keynote: Annie Patterson and Peter Blood – in concert!! Annie and Peter (active Quakers, together since 1981) are the creators of Rise Up Singing and Rise Again songbooks. She is “a teacher, musician, artist, peace activist, mother, and community organizer.” He is “a nurse, family therapist, crisis worker, music editor, song leader, spiritual formation leader and teacher of Quakerism.” We feel honored that they are joining us. https://www.riseupandsing.org/
Please plan to attend this year’s SCYM to build your spirit in community with us. The workshops will give you specific tools through the arts that will encourage you to creatively move forward “to the Light.” Come join us as we make art through clay, collage, writing, movement and music.
2018 SCYM Representative Meeting will take place - 16-18 November - Camp Gilmont near Gilmer, Texas
