Welcome to the Baltimore Yearly Meeting Intervisitation Working Group’s page. Whether you are from another Yearly Meeting or from Baltimore Yearly Meeting, we hope you’ll find useful information here about our program and how to participate.
Our Mission Statement:
The Intervisitation Program of Baltimore Yearly Meeting (BYM) seeks to nurture the beloved community of Friends by encouraging, preparing, and supporting those who travel among Friends, both inside and outside of BYM. Our experience has shown the power of visiting in order to care for relationships within and among Yearly Meetings, especially where they are fragile, as well as to enjoy the richer, more abundant life available in the wide family of Friends. Through a simple “ministry of presence” we hope to be spiritually and prayerfully present, to listen deeply with love and without judgment, to be tender with another, not to bring our own agendas, and to get to know each other in that which is eternal. Visits will be in all directions, and involve both offering and receiving hospitality.
Here are some resources. Please note some of these are from our old site, which we will integrate into this WordPress site as we are able:
