Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Live Oak Friends Meeting

Members of Live Oak Friends Meeting after meeting with US Congressman Jimmy Panetta (California 20th Congressional District) to discuss the need for immediate reunification of migrant children with their families, having been separate at the US/Mexico border during immigration enforcement opeerations.  August 16, 2019.

We, the members of Live Oak Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), in Salinas California, strongly oppose the separation of children from their families during immigration enforcement operations as being contrary to the will of the Divine and the historic testimonies of Friends (Quakers). We call for an immediate end to this practice, and we support the immediate reunification of children with their families.

We are deeply saddened by the attack on worshipers at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh on October 27, 2018.  All human life is sacred.  There are many paths to God, and all the Abrahamic religions provide spiritual paths to make the world a better place.   The Live Oak Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) stands with Temple Beth El in Salinas, CA in striving to eliminate the ignorance, fear and hatred that have made attacks like that occurring in Pittsburgh all too common in our nation.   Let us live instead with the spirit of divine love that joins us together in peace.
