Traveling Minute

To Friends Gathered at Ben Lomond and everywhere,

This letter is a traveling minute on behalf of Ashley W. She is a member of Freedom Friends Church and a sojourning member of University Friends Meeting in Seattle, Washington. Ashley is traveling to participate in "Reclaiming the Power of Primitive Quakerism for the 21st Century."

We commend Ashley to you. She is a beloved member of our community, in good standing. She is a bright, astute, creative, and well-spoken Friend, who carries a concern for peace, justice, and the life of the Spirit. Please care for her tenderly, and encourage her heart. She will carry our care and encouragement to you as well.

We are well pleased to send her to you as a representative of Freedom Friends Church and you may trust the testimony she brings to you.

Blessings of Peace, Love and Joy to you all in Christ Jesus,

Alivia B
Presiding Clerk, Freedom Friends Church


  1. We will be honored to receive you.

  2. Thanks, Robin. I am really looking forward to it!

  3. Hi, I started to endorse your letter of introduction, and then I passed it to Martin and Wess to look at what I had written before I finished, and I never got it back, so I don't think I signed my name to it. I apologize. I hope they at least signed it. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope we'll have other opportunities to just talk more another time.

  4. Hi Robin,

    That's okay, I can tell which handwriting is yours and I'll just put your name in parentheses. It was a pleasure to meet you too and thanks again for leading the workshop. I am still collecting my thoughts, but I hope to write about it soon.
