Dear Family Meeting Family:
We are back, after a 2 1/2 month hiatus, that studied how to improve what we do here at The Family Meeting. After a great deal of research, inquiry, and reflection, I know that we are now here to stay because of the clarity of the vision born from this time away.
This dream of mine to create content that is a widespread and widely read, a venue for thoughtfulness on issues of importance, like most things worthwhile, has not come easy and requires a whole lot of work.
We are going to provide you with some new voices from differing perspectives and walks of life, multicultural, generational, and spiritual. Our content will be consistent, with Wednesday and Sunday commentaries, as well as other non-editorial posts that will appear almost daily. We have also developed an email notification process that starts tomorrow that will notify you of posts and allow you to pass them, and your thoughts about them, along to others.
We are rededicated to the purpose and goals set for this medium from the beginning:
1. To be a place where inspirational and uplifting critical thought are initiated and provoked.
2. To be a place that explores, develops, and creates recommendations and solutions that are pertinent to problems and issues facing our society-often with a focus on improving the lives of young people and their families.
3. To encourage and generate dialogue that is premised on intellect, resolve, and respect for one another that has as its foremost goal trying to make the world a better place.
4. To be a place where thoughts and comments, in response to thoughtful expressions, posts, articles, or commentaries on important subjects turn into a family meeting.
As I continue to pursue this dream, I am grateful to God, family, friends, first time or frequent visitors, subscribers, and all who have supported this endeavor. Thank you for your support, thoughts, prayers, and yes… even your criticism.
So this is it; here we go.
Read, learn, and share…….Have a Family Meeting!
