Meeting Community

A New Home on the Web

When my husband and I moved to Reno seven years ago, we went searching for a spiritual community online….

I checked out several different religious websites, but was attracted to Reno Friends Meeting by the personal feel of its site.  There were bios of attenders, welcoming faces, and a treasure trove of material on Quakerism.  We went to Silent Worship the next weekend and have been attending ever since.

Today, though, that original Reno Friends website feels out of date.  How quickly technology changes!  In an effort to reach out to the Northern Nevada community, Reno Friends has built a new web site that we hope will be easier to use and more inviting to newcomers.  Building on the WordPress blog platform, we reorganized and distilled content from the old site, building a site we hope you will find useful, attractive and easy to navigate. It will also be easier for us to manage internally, enabling more frequent updates.

As part of our redesign, we have added this monthly blog about the interesting things we’re doing at the Meeting — whether it’s the annual fall camping trip to Grover Hot Springs or the new class on Quaker Testimonies.  We will also fold the monthly newsletter into the website and provide a more robust calendar of future events.  My hope is that the Reno Friends website will become a resource and home for everyone interested in Quaker practice and philosophy in the Reno-Tahoe area.

In the Light,

Wendy Swallow, Clerk of Reno Friends Meeting
