10:30 – 11:30 am  Dove John will present a workshop for the Equity and Inclusion Committee
11:30 – 12:00 pm  Get moving! Intergenerational scavenger hunt with Tom & Vicki Stave
12:00 – 1:00 pm Lunch provided by Eugene Friends (donation requested)
1:00 – 2:00 pm  SCYMF committees meet 
2:10 – 3:50 pm Worship through Business
4:00 – 5:30 pm  Discussion: Who does God want us to be?

When we come together – to pray, to encourage each other, to make promises to God and to each other, and to count and deploy our resources – who in fact are we? More to the point, who does God want us to be?

What language, scripture, disciplines can we draw on to describe ourselves and make ourselves accessible to the world?

Some of us already come with labels – evangelical, progressive, radical, conservative, -- and some of those labels carry great personal meaning. But the meaning can be positive for one person, and quite negative for another. Some of us are skeptical about all labels, but still want to communicate what God is doing with us and invite others into the adventure.

Label or no, discerning what God wants us to become will help point the way to our next steps as a yearly meeting.

5:30 pm   Simple meal provided by Eugene Friends (donation requested)

Child care will be provided, except during meals and the scavenger hunt
