Online Forums for June
Welcome to Friends Meeting at Cambridge’s forum on Zoom, an opportunity to hear ideas, queries, and others’ experiences so as to deepen our connection with one another. This Year’s theme: What does Love look like in challenging times?
- June 7: “A Conversation Among LGBTQ+ Friends”. We encourage the community to watch an 11-minute video from “The Atlantic” before the Forum, which will build on the video. Here is the link to the video. Though the video provides context for the Forum’s themes, watching the video is not necessary to attend and enjoy the Forum.
- June 14: “What does Love look like in challenging times?” Reflections.
- June 21: Instead of Forum, this time will be used to conduct our business in worship. LJ Boswell will give the Resident Friend annual report in which they will reflect on their experiences at FMC and will share insights that could prove helpful to the meeting as we re-evaluate the structure and responsibilities of the Resident Friend position.
- June 28:“A still, small voice in the early dawn: My leading to serve as co-clerk of Friends Peace Teams” with Jonathan Vogel Borne

Finally, here’s a brief description of how this will work.
After joining us, please mute yourself. (click on the microphone icon at the bottom left corner of your particular square) When our presenter has finished, after some worship, if moved to speak, please raise your hand. (The prompt to Raise Hand will be under the participant list.) In order to give everyone time to reflect upon what has just been said, I will allow a few moments between speakers before calling on someone. When called on, please click on the red microphone to un-mute yourself. Mute yourself again when you have finished. We will end at 10:20.
