Online Forums for August
Welcome to Friends Meeting at Cambridge forums on Zoom, an opportunity to hear ideas, queries, and others’ experiences so as to deepen our connection with one another.
The theme for this summer’s forums is “On Studying Sacred Texts” (from the title of a poem by Judith Offer). Each forum will follow the same format: One or two presenters will speak on what the chosen “text” means for them. Participants will have an opportunity to ask the presenters questions and to share their own reflections on that forum’s text or about what they have heard. Whenever possible, a link to the text will be posted in the chat box. Pre-reading that day’s text is optional.
