Home hospitality; registration

Good news! We have been hearing from a number of local Friends who are able to offer home hospitality. If staying in someone's home would make the difference in terms of financial accessibility for you, please be sure to let us know on your registration form, and we will connect you with one of these local Friends. (If you've already sent in your registration, feel free to email us at great-waters at hotmail dot com.)

The registration deadline is fast approaching (May 3). Many thanks to those who have already sent in your registrations -- it helps the planning committee. If you haven't sent yours in yet, you don't have to wait until May 3... :)

Blog down?

When I went to check something on the blog site today, it was down. Anyone else have any trouble? Thanks.

Sample outreach posting

Are you a Quaker who experiences the Divine primarily through Nature, the Earth and Her seasons, the Divine Feminine, the Goddess and the God, or other pre-Christian Deities? Are you a Pagan who finds Quaker worship and Quaker testimonies – Peace, Simplicity, Equality, Integrity, and Stewardship/Earthcare – a central part of how you walk through your life? Come to Great Waters. Great Waters Pagan Friends Gathering is a weekend for Pagan Quakers and Quaker Pagans, over Memorial Day Weekend 2007 (May 25-28), in Ann Arbor, MI. For more information, please see or email


On behalf of the Planning Committee for Great Waters Pagan Friends Gathering, I am asking for your help with outreach. We need your help to get the word to other Pagans, Quakers, and folks who might be interested in our Gathering.

Would you be willing to send an email to friends and loved ones whom you think might want to know about Great Waters? to any email lists you're on? or to make a post to your blog or LiveJournal or web site?

We're a home-grown gathering dedicated to community-building. Community springs from the connections between each of us as individuals, and between individuals and a larger group of people. In this case, this means one email or web view at a time. :)

Thanks for your help, and I hope to see many of you at Great Waters!

In Friendship,
Blessed be,
