Corporate Discernment Materials on the web
We are delighted to report that materials concerning Corporate Discernment
have been posted under the Quaker Library section of the FGC website. (FGC
mailed these materials to monthly meetings this fall. They were so
well-received that we wanted to share them with everyone!) Also, we'd still love to
hear from meetings who wish to reflect on the queries and send responses to FGC.

Giving surge earns $50,000 challenge for FGC
Thanks to a surge in year-end donations, FGC earned a $50,000 challenge
offered by a group of Quaker families. FGC received more than 300 contributions
from Friends who increased, renewed and gave for the first time! We are
thrilled to have met this challenge and remain deeply grateful for all of your
support. FGC's programs and services would not be possible without the work and
confidence of our supporters! Thank you!

QuakerBooks hits record numbers
QuakerBooks of FGC filled a record number of orders during the second week
of December. The rush was inspired by the latest 'Book Musings' from Lucy and
an offer of free priority shipping. Thanks to all those who responded so
favorably to the offer and for your ongoing support of QuakerBooks! To see
the most recent additions to the bookstore's offering, check out the _'New'

Please help us spread the word about a wonderful conference for Young Adult
Friends, "Living as Friends, Listening Within" to be held Memorial day
weekend, May 23-26, 2008 in Richmond, Indiana. The conference will offer workshops
on leadings and callings and provide YAF's a chance to share in worship and
play. Young adults from meetings and churches affiliated with FGC, Friends
United Meeting (FUM), Evangelical Friends International (EFI), and Independent
and Conservative yearly meetings are planning this exciting event!

Last call for upcoming "Safe Spaces" workshop for Quaker Youth planners
FGC's Youth Ministries and Religious Education Committees are co-sponsoring
a workshop with Pendle Hill on safety issues for overnight events for middle
and high school-aged Friends. The workshop, "Building and Holding Safe
Spaces for Quaker Youth", will be held at Pendle Hill from February 8-10, 2008.
Friends will have opportunities to look at what yearly meetings have put
together around issues of safety for youth and seek common ground on issues
relating to guidelines and program expectations.
