Abode Village View—June 12, 2022

Dear Abode Friends,


We only have a few quick updates this week. First, thank you to all who signed up for Pir Vilayat’s Birthday Celebration at the Abode set for next Sunday, June 19th. We sold out fairly quickly. (So sorry to those of you hoping to come—more in-person summer events will be announced soon.)


Please know you can still join us for the Universal Worship part of the Celebration via Zoom, Sunday, June 19th at 11 am Eastern Time. See details below. (If you have any questions related to Pir Vilayat’s Birthday Celebration, please email [email protected].)


Otherwise, we are very close to contracting a realtor and anticipate having the Abode property listed for sale within the next three weeks. We hope to craft a listing emphasizing the sacred importance of the Abode history, land, Shaker buildings, and people, intentionally calling forth a “succession steward” for the Abode going forward. We will share more about this in future newsletters.


With love and appreciation always,


Jennifer Alia Wittman
Abode Board Secretary & Treasurer
