Come talk with other Quakers about “What is the work we need to do to become an inclusive community that makes each of us feel we belong, are valued and have a role?”
Due to the likelihood of significant snow this evening (Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015), we are cancelling the "Potluck and Process" evening with Deborah Fisch. A new date will be scheduled as soon as possible. Questions? Ellen Deacon 215-247-0670, firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to the entire Meeting for your generous response to the 2014 Simple Gifts Bazaar. Your support helped two disadvantaged families to have a happy Christmas and allowed our own First Day School children to gain an awareness of the needs of others and the difference their individual efforts can make.
On Saturday, December 6, approximately 300 people participated in the “Flood PNC” national day of action coordinated by Earth Quaker Action Team to demand that PNC Bank stop financing companies engaged in mountaintop removal coal mining. The day included actions at 31 locations in 12 states and the District of Columbia, with a few held Friday afternoon to accommodate local bank schedules. Six took place in the Philadelphia area, including one where Green Street Meeting closed their PNC account.
1. Meeting for Worship
- Are our meetings for worship held in stilled, expectant waiting upon God?
- As we worship is there a living silence in which we are drawn together by the power of God in our midst?
