Boulder Meeting’s Blog page highlights the projects, activities, and interests of individual members and attenders. Activities adopted by the Meeting as a whole are described elsewhere. The Blog page is intended to encourage sharing of ideas and to help us get to know each other. Blog posts on this page express the views of individual authors and do not represent positions of the Boulder Friends Meeting or Quakers in general. If you want people to read your posting, we recommend that you keep your blog entry courteous and brief (less than 1000 words)! If you feel more information is required, provide links to other documents or websites. Do you have something to share with the rest of us? Perhaps a trip where you provided outreach work, an article you wrote that concerns Friends, or something similar? If so, this may be the place to post it!
