Cleveland Friends Meeting
Meeting for worship will move to the Church of the Covenant starting 7th Month, 18th Day. Please join us in our new space!
Beginning Wednesday, 17 March from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, we will be reading aloud together from The Essential Elias Hicks.
Some of you may have taken advantage of this course last spring, but if you did not, it is being offered again from 26 April to 16 May. The course is free. The key instructor is Ben Pink Dandelion, who is an instructor at Woodbrooke Quaker Centre and frequent author of books on Quaker history and theology. A number of other scholars of the early Friends movement also participate. Many of the sessions are held at historic locations (Pendle Hill, Swarthmore Hall, Firbank Fell) so you also get a visual picture of where early Quaker history evolved.
We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government, nor are we for this party nor against the other, but we are for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom, that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness, righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with God, and with one another, that these things may abound.
Edward Burrough, 1659
