Adelphi is currently involved in an exciting long range planning process to envision and plan for the future of our Meeting. The process began over a year ago during our 50th anniversary weekend retreat and celebration. At this point we are developing the five themes that came forth, and are holding a series of second hours to thresh theme-related “provocative proposals” compiled and put forward by the Long Range Planning Ad Hoc Committee. After that process, “dream teams” will be formed to further develop and refine ideas that emerge from the threshing sessions. While we do this, committees have been asked to suspend some normal activity and spend a substantial amount of time discussing the future as it pertains to that particular committee.
Other activities of the Meeting have included a winter Local Foods potluck that challenged us to bring seasonally appropriate food, and Meeting middle schoolers learning about and visiting different religious traditions
