Where the Wind Blows
Imagine two meetings located near to one another. Who can say with certainty why one thrives for generations and the other never does? Or why , with similar histories in terms of attendance, one meeting suddenly explodes with new growth while the other dwindles? A variety of factors influence patterns of growth and vitality. Where the Wind Blows is the result of surveys and conversations with nine flourishing Friends meetings (FGC) or churches (FUM) of Friends. This project had two primary goals: share positive news of worship and ministry among Friends; and create a resource for Friends seeking assistance with their own quest for vitality.
