In September, the Marriage and Family Relations Committee of Sandy Springs Meeting in Maryland invited couples who are in committed relationships to consider establishing a monthly gathering for couples, to be shepherded by FCE leaders Joan and Rich Liversidge. Assuming that the interested couples can find a good time to meet, this group will be one of many ongoing groups across the nation. Ongoing groups take many forms, but most focus on providing opportunities for couples to continue to experience witnessed dialogue – the heart of a Friends Couple Enrichment event.
Ongoing groups can be organized by Meetings, FCE leaders, or interested FCE participants. Most often, an ongoing group forms after the catalyst of a Friends Couple Enrichment event. If you are interested in bringing a Friends Couple Enrichment event to your area and/or starting an ongoing group with people who have participated in an event, please visit the EVENTS section of our website a list of upcoming events and tips on organizing an event.
