Quaker pamphlets

I am working on updating the Quaker pamphlets. Called "Beginner's Guide to Quakerism," they were really Maurine's idea, and now that she's passed along I can do them with her spirit in mind.

There are several problems, and one is that the postage is complicated. I think I will do a test run and send ten, and simply ask what happens when I send more, or farther, etc. I can't seem to glean a clear idea of postage from the USPS pages, that will tell me, for example, what a package of ten or twenty might cost, sent to the coast.

We have a new and hearty printer that might be able to handle color covers. If so, I will try. I don't really believe it will raise the price that much. With typical Quaker stinginess, I hesitate to put color in there, but it's kind of understated, and doesn't really upset the austere graying image of the meeting house on the cover.

I will keep you posted! Also I will get some of these pamphlets posted. The first step is to make some, and send them!

George Lakey

Strawberries and Friends,
You are invited to join San Francisco Friends to hear George Lakey talk about his new book, Dancing with History, on Sunday Nov 6, 1pm (either in person at their meetinghouse or on the zoom link listed below). I reviewed his book (favorably!!) in the most recent issue of Western Friend (if anyone has an electronic link to my review, please share). George has had and continues to have an inspiring, courageous and joyful life, with ups and downs and lots of heart. His passions include social and racial justice, economic equity, peace and the environment.
Berkeley Friends on the SCMM listserve, please share this announcement with BMM.
Come be inspired!

Reflections on the Memorial Service for Maurine Pyle

I want to thank everyone who came to the Memorial Service held by Cloud Quakers a week ago.

I also want to apologize for a tech misstep in which I left youtube on while apparently closing its window. It stressed me out considerably but, it's water under the bridge, so to speak.

It was good to reflect on her life and hear others' opinions and experiences of it.

She was an inspirational and founding member of Cloud Quakers, and we will miss her.
