What's New

The passage shared at the 9/25 meeting for worship was from the Quaker prison reformer Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845):

I look not to myself, but to that within me, that has to my admiration proved to be my present help, and enabled me to do what I believe of myself I could not have done.

Memphis Friends found our first meeting spaces at Rhodes College in 1984. When our campus sponsor left Memphis, we moved to the Seventh Day Adventist Church on East Parkway, then to a rented building in Cooper-Young. When we learned the owners were going to sell that building, we began in earnest to find a place we could count on. The search began in midtown, but since an accessible building meant having both worship space and first day school on one floor, we began to look further east. We were led to 3387 Walnut Grove, and moved in the Sunday after Thanksgiving in 2008.
