Sometimes I think what happens between the meetings has more significance than what happens in the meetings. Conversations in the halls or lobby and at meals can move past “Good to see you.” “How are you doing?” to where the deeper issues of life come out as experience, insight, and concern are shared. As Quakers from Washington, Idaho, and Oregon meet here in Newberg, I stumble into opportunities to connect eye to eye with some fine people. I don’t think it is heresy to suggest that relationships discovered, nurtured, matured are as important as the actions that go into the minutes.
