An attender at Multnomah Monthly Meeting, Mitchell Santine Gould, is the leading authority on Walt Whitman's Quakerism. He will be giving a lecture on "Whitman @ 200," on Whitman's birthday, May 31, 2017, 7pm at The Old Church, 1422 SW 11th Avenue.
Due to the ongoing road conditions presenting difficulty in getting to the Meetinghouse for many, we have decided to postpone Meeting for Worship for Business and Potluck for this coming Sunday, 1/15.
January's Meeting for Worship for Business and Potluck will be on the following Sunday, 1/22.
Early Morning Worship at 8:15 am and Meeting for Worship at 10:00 am will still be held for those who are able to travel safely to the meetinghouse.
Minute of Support for Standing Rock Sioux
Multnomah Friends Meeting (Quakers) in Portland, Oregon thanks the Standing Rock Sioux for bringing together tribes and peoples from across the country and around the world to protect water. We know that water is life and that water, like spirit, connects all living things.
We join our voices with those who oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline because expanding fossil fuel use will accelerate climate change and further damage our planet.
