At the Site

I'm sorry I haven't gotten a Newsletter out in a long time. I haven't spent as much time on the site as I anticipated. There are changes several times a week in the form of Quaker news headlines, updates of existing pages and Forum messages, but there haven't been any totally new articles for some time. I highlight below some of the areas in which there is new content:

Calendar of Yearly Meetings - This has been updated for 2003. Forum - There have been a number of active discussions in the Forum. This is the interactive part of the site, and there is much interesting dialogue here. Check it frequently, and post from time to time.
