Forget about Outreach pdf, html

Forget about Outreach! People are being opened in Subud USA, but it appears they are not staying for the long term. So, let us consider focusing our efforts and national resources on developing abilities to become a more flexible organization responsive to our members needs (especially new members) rather than focusing on giving public talks designed to attract people to Subud. We can develop these abilities through engaging in social and community projects, with the secondary benefit that Subud may grow. This way people will see us living our latihan rather than only hearing us talk about it.
