Community Friends Meeting marked the 6th annual World Quaker Day with a group photo following meeting for worship. World Quaker Day is sponsored by the Friends World Committee for Consultation.

Community Friends Meeting would like to invite you to visit our meetinghouse on Sunday, September 22nd. We are located at 3960 Winding Way. Feel free to join us for worship at 10:00 a.m. followed by light refreshments and a brief introduction to Quakerism at 11:30. You are welcome to attend either or both of these events.

Our worship is based in prayerful silence. Anyone who feels strongly led by the Spirit to do so, may share a message out of the silence.

The Center for Development in Central America is a clinic, Fair trade agricultural and lending cooperative, and cultural exchange program in Managua , Nicaragua. Ken Bordwell was the "sponsor" of this organization with Community Friends, but since his death a year ago I have not been diligent enough in communicating why Community Friends supports it.

Public

Dearest friends! Thank you again so much for all your support since Ken's sudden death.  It has made all the difference in the world. I know so many are out there for me, so many have sent encouragement, and so many have helped in large and small ways, as I was able to identify needs.
 
Ken's memorial meeting will be at St. Peter in Chains Undercroft, 8th and Plum St.  Use the small 8th St entrance; there is another mass going on upstairs.

Wednesday Nov. 22 (the day before Thanksgiving) 10 AM to noon Chili and sandwiches will be available.

"I've been to Middfest events in the past, and they are excellent. In addition, I know some of the organizers of this event, and they do a terrific job."
