WELCOME TO MORNINGSIDE MEETING

Morningside Meeting will hold our next meeting for worship on November 22nd at 11 a.m.:  a hybrid in-person/remote meeting for worship.  The virtual meeting room will be open at 10:45 a.m. for Friends and attenders to begin to gather.  If you are new to Morningside, or not on the email list, and wish to attend, please email:  morningsidequakermeeting@gmail.com.

For those who wish to participate in-person, please note the following:

·You must reserve a place *in-advance* via a link that will be sent later this week.

·The meeting room has a capacity of 20 people, so the RSVP system won't allow more than 20 people to register for Meeting.

·Meeting for Worship in-person will occur at Riverside Church on the 20th Floor, a new location for us.

·To enter the Church, you must stop at the security desk to register and complete a health waiver.  You can find Riverside's policy and waiver form at this link.

·You will also need to confirm your presence with the Greeter when you arrive on the 20th floor.

Worship will be followed by a period of afterwords, announcements and introductions of all those present. 

A meeting of the Racial Justice Study Group will follow on zoom at 1 p.m.:  Reflections on the Elections, an open discussion on how racism impacted our recent elections. Friends will also be invited to consider the query - What is your personal post-election path forward? Please attend with your feelings, thoughts and opinions. Please let us know if you plan to participate by emailing morningsidequakermeeting@gmail.com.

Morningside Meeting Ministry and Counsel is a committee charged with the pastoral care of the meeting.  Members are available to answer questions about Quakerism, about Friends Meeting, and to provide support.  To reach the committee, please email:  morningsidequakermeeting@gmail.com.

Friends are reminded that our Religious Society took form in times of disturbance, and that its continuing testimony has been the power of God to lead men and women out of the confusions of outward violence, inward sickness, and all other forms of self-will, however upheld by social convention.
