West Newton Friends Meeting

Minute For Peace Around the World

 

Public

March 20, we signed a "Christian Call for Peace" as found on Friends World Committee for Consultation - FWCC World Office's website. It says:

Christian Call for Peace
We the undersigned say together with many others to the rulers of Russia that invasion and occupation are the opposite of Christ’s universal call to reconciliation and unity.
Jesus emphasised: ‘You shall not kill’.
We call for an immediate ceasefire, with armed conflict replaced by a peacekeeping dialogue.

On Sunday morning, February 27, some of us gathered on Zoom for a time of prayer for peace in Ukraine.  Friends wanted to also provide financial relief to those in need. We checked with our fellow peace church folks, the Mennonites. The Mennonite Central Committee (their equivalent to the AFSC) is accepting donations and working with organizations on the ground in Ukraine to get funds to the people most in need.

On December 5 at 10 am West Newton Friends Meeting will host Tom Roberts, pianist and musician friends who are trumpeters and vocalists, for a performance of Christmas music and readings. This worship service will last approximately one hour. We'll have a brief reception time following meeting for worship.  Members and friends from Valley Mills Meeting and Camby Tabernacle will join us for this service which will be in person and also broadcast via zoom. All are welcome to attend!

Quaker Quote

"Whoever can reconcile this, ‘Resist not evil’, with ‘Resist violence by force’, again, ‘Give also thy other cheek’, with ‘Strike again’; also ‘Love thine enemies’, with ‘Spoil them, make a prey of them, pursue them with fire and the sword’, or, ‘Pray for those that persecute you, and those that calumniate you’, with ‘Persecute them by fines, imprisonments and death itself’, whoever, I say, can find a means to reconcile these things may be supposed also to have found a way to reconcile God with the Devil, Christ with Antichrist, Light with Darkness, and good with evil. But if this be impossible, as indeed it is impossible, so will also the other be impossible, and men do but deceive both themselves and others, while they boldly adventure to establish such absurd and impossible things." -- Robert Barclay, 1678

The quotations used in this space are from Quakers. The quotes will be changed often to give a feeling for the thinking of some of those who passed this way before us and Friends today.
