Hello again!

Sorry to have been silent for so long – partly I’ve been busy on other projects, and partly I was sitting out the last rumbles of the separation of Friends in this part of the Midwest into Indiana Yearly Meeting and the New Association of Friends.

For those of you who have been on the sidelines, Indiana Yearly Meeting now has 44 local meetings and a membership of about 2,300, with several full and part-time staff members and a brick-and-mortar headquarters in Muncie, Indiana. The New Association of Friends has 15 local meetings, about 900-1,000 members, and is totally decentralized with no office and no staff – but a very hard-working clerk and many active volunteers.

Look here soon for a new series of posts on topics such as membership, demographic trends, Quaker weddings, recording of gifts, and many others. Suggested topics welcome!
