A few faces of FLGBTQC

Front Porch

"There's a big porch on the Meeting house of Mid-Coast Meeting in Damariscotta ME and also a big porch on the Meeting house in McNabb IL. They have chairs and rockers and you can just sit there for a bit and soon enough people will come by with conversation to listen to or join in on. The tone changes as people arrive or leave for Meeting for Worship as opposed to say arriving for a committee meeting or a potluck. The depth of what's shared shifts and whether a conversation is one that can be joined is obvious by sounds and eye contact. One hears stories, laughter, tears, and the whole parade of characters of a meeting can be glimpsed just by sitting on that porch and taking it in. It's a very round sense of our lives that can be seen this way."
