| ALL-KENTUCKY FRIENDS GATHERING
|
| On Sept. 6-8, the 19th Annual All-Kentucky Friends Gathering
| will be held in Berea, sponsored as usual by the Berea, Lexington, and
| Louisville Friends Meetings.  Also as usual, other Friends would be
most
| welcome to come.  Members of those three meetings have been mailed
| registration packets.  Anyone interested in getting a packet may call
| Marjorie Acevedo, 859-986-7158; or use e-mail to get an e-mail packet
| by requesting to Peter at Reilly.net.  Payment of $20 per adult, $15 per
| teen, and $10 for ages 4-12 may be done at the door, but registering
| ahead of time is necessary for Berea Friends to be able to make
| appropriate arrangements for the right numbers.
|
| Lodging will be supplied in homes of Berea Friends upon
| request.  Breakfast on your own or with host family; other meals are
| included in registration fee.
|
| The theme focuses on conflict resolution skills to help Friends
| better live out our Peace Testimony.  Louise Harmon will make an
| introductory presentation Saturday morning, followed by small
discussion
| groups, on such topics as conflict resolution within our families,
anger
| management tools, a video on peacemaking from AFSC lending library,
| learning how to listen, discussion of the Sept. 2000 FRIENDS JOURNAL
| article on Peace Culture by Elise Boulding, etc.  Teens will work on
an
| art project and a service project.  Younger friends will have
| age-appropriate activities, to be planned when registration gives us
| some numbers.
|
| In free time there will also be optional discussion sessions on
| Quaker Committe on Kentucky Legislation (QCKL)'s upcoming agenda; and
on
| some projects proposed for collaboration by the Kentucky meetings.
