John Fitzgerald from Britain Yearly Meeting has set up a blog for this year’s yearly gathering and has invited Simon, Jez and me to be the ‘official bloggers’ of the event.
“This should be a great way of expanding the experience of Yearly Meeting to reach those who can’t be there. We’ve recruited three well-known Quaker bloggers, and I’m looking forward to working with them at Yearly Meeting.”
I don’t know about Simon and Jez, but I’ve never been called a “well-known Quaker blogger” before, but that has to be something special?!
The three of us are going to be at the various meetings and blogging and posting pictures about all that happens there. It’s going to be a lot of fun for me because of a number of reasons; a) this will be my first week in England and my very first time meeting British Quakers, b) I love to blog and take pictures (in case you hadn’t noticed), and c) I’ll have the opportunity to hang out with Simon, who has been a long time internet pal and has been very helpful in getting me on my way the England.
In the next month or so we’ll be posting introductions, and other tidbits to get some content on the site and prepare for May, we will most likely try to post some audio and other things from the YM as well. So please bookmark the page and experience BYM in a new way (or for the first time).
