As the pumpkin spice begins to flow and we rake our yards for leaves, we invite
you to take some time to catch up with FGC. In this October newsletter we're
sharing excitement from Northern Yearly Meeting, reflections from our new
Ministry on Racism Support Specialist Lena Glickman, and fun community building
activities for your whole meeting. We're also delighted to spread the
word on an important FGC program, the Friends Meeting House Fund, and
reintroduce you to our FGC staff in our new series 'Meet Your Staff' an
opportunity to get to know the wonderful people who do great work to support
your community through Friends General Conference.

In the Spirit,
FGC Staff
