Conservative Friends Gathering

Our family enjoyed a time of fellowship with other Quakers at the Conservative Friends Gathering in Lancaster County, PA. Growing up in the Hudson Valley, memories of the sounds of silence were completed with distant engine locomotion noises. In between messages, singing and Scripture reading this weekend, the sounds of silence were complete with the clap of horse shoes up and down the paved roads as the Amish completed their work of the day.
