Dear BYM Friends,

Interim Meeting on June 9 has an agenda that is full of really interesting things. Please take a look at the materials being sent to you today. Our business process goes better when people know about the topics being presented. So please read and hold in the Light the leadings, witness, and day to day work of our Yearly Meeting. And come to the meeting on June 9 to learn more and be part of the discernment of our Yearly Meeting’s work.

Since Annual Session in August, we have taken time in each Interim Meeting to talk about issues related to racism or to have meetings report some things they are doing about racism. At this meeting, we will not have a discussion, though there will be a short update from work that the ad hoc Growing Diverse Leadership Committee and the Working Group on Racism are doing. If you would like to know more about this, please check the BYM website. And join in this work if you would like.

If you have questions or concerns about Interim Meeting, please let me know. I look forward to seeing many of you there.

With best wishes,

Marcy Baker Seitel
Clerk of Interim Meeting
