From the Compassionate Listening Workshop
To listen is very hard, because it asks of us so much interior stability that we no longer need to prove ourselves by speeches, arguments, statements, or declarations. True listeners no longer have an inner need to make their presence known. They are free to receive, to welcome, to accept. Henri Nouwen

Don't Forget to Take a Turn at Greeting Friends on Sunday Morning
Open the meetinghouse, ready the coffee and tea, and greet people as they arrive, especially visitors and others who may not have been to Meeting for a great while.
The work is easy: arrive at 9 or soon after, unlock, check the meeting room for readiness, fill the tea and coffee makers with water, add some ground coffee from the refrigerator, and get them ready to turn on just before you go into meeting. Be near front door as people arrive to greet old-timers and any newcomers. Offer newcomers a brief explanation of what to expect and one of the information packets on the counter near the guest book (tied in ribbon). Introduce them to others, etc. Invite (but don’t push) them to sign the guest book.
These instructions are posted in the foyer, but listed here to demonstrate what easy work it is.
There is a signup list in the foyer, or email Jim Mills (email@example.com).
