Baltimore Yearly Meeting is the regional organizing unit for the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the area of central Pennsylvania, Maryland, parts of West Virginia, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. It is through membership in a Yearly Meeting that individual Quakers become connected with the larger Quaker movement worldwide. "In fellowship, in deep listening, in waiting worship, in commitment to each other, it richly rewards those who embrace the challenge of being a Yearly Meeting Friend." (2011 draft Faith and Practice)

A few people from the Bethesda Friends Meeting community were able to participate in the Yearly Meeting’s workshop on implicit bias in November and were so impressed by the learning experience that they wanted others in BFM to experience it. And it may be even more powerful the second time around! It is an opportunity to learn how we are imbued with assumptions which skew our actions in ways we may no longer even be aware of. We can become more aware of them by taking time to pause and look them anew. Please join us at 9:00am on Sunday, February 11, in the Music Room, which is in the basement of the SAM Building, across the patio from the Meeting Room. Please come if you possibly can. For details, Jane Meleney Coe (email@example.com, 301-320-5083).
