Nepal Presentation:
Nancy and Jacquie showed us a DVD they recorded of their trip, passed around photos, and handed out stories of their trip. They narrated their DVD. It was so wonderful and inspiring, we all wanted more.

Voluntary Simplicity Course:
We stopped our regular meeting at one hour to leave the last hour for the course discussion.  Mary facilitated. We had all read the first chapter and went around the room discussing what we found relevant and impactful to our lives.
Next month's meeting will be on the second chapter.
