Eugene Friends Meeting

of the Religious Society of Friends ("Quakers")

Go to State of Society response form

The State of Society Report is prepared once a  year in time to be forwarded to the spring session of Willamette Quarterly Meeting. The State of Society report is a self-examination by the Meeting and its members of their spiritual strengths and weaknesses. The report may cover the full range of interests and concerns but emphasize those that indicated the spiritual health of the Meeting.

The ongoing pandemic continues to change the way our members interact.

In the past, the State of Society report has helped gain a holistic view of the life of the Meeting. This year we’ve been more isolated from one another. The report will help us know what’s been going on in different arms of our Meeting. The State of Society Report Ad-Hoc Committee has crafted some simple queries to help get the juices flowing. But if another query or reply seems appropriate, please feel free to go where Spirit leads when crafting your contribution.

2022 Queries on the Theme of Building a Resilient Community

Please use the form to write a paragraph in response to the following queries:

  • Have you experienced Eugene Friends Meeting as a resilient community during the past year (2021)? How has your committee or position contributed to our resilience?
  • Have you experienced spiritual growth during the past year (2021)? Have you seen spiritual growth in your committee and/or in the Eugene Friends Community?
  • What individual or collective joys and concerns do you want to share from the past year?

You can choose one or all. We hope you will enjoy putting together your honest, informative contribution, and we thank you for taking the time to do this.

Response Form

All are welcome to share their responses to the queries whether you are new to the Meeting or have attended for many years.

You are invited to use the form to let us know how the Spirit was with thee in 2021.

The deadline for State of Society submittals is March 6, 2022.
