May 15, 2019 – From Alyssa Nelson

Hello Pacific Yearly Meeting Friends! And farewell!!

After eleven years (!!!), the time has come to bid you a ‘see you around.’ Today is my official last day as the PYM Youth Programs Coordinator, a role I’ve been in since August 2011 and an initiative I’ve been part of in various ways since spring 2008. I’m writing to make sure everyone knows I’m leaving and to take this opportunity to share some reflections.

(For those sitting on the edge of your seats right now…, Yes, there will be a new YPC. The Youth Programs Coordinating Committee will be making an announcement about that shortly. At the end of this epistle you’ll find a list of contact people for the interim.) Continue reading “YPC Epistle XIII – Alyssa’s Farewell – May 2019”
