QEW Worship-Sharing


Dear Friends,

Quaker Earthcare Witness is hosting monthly online worship sharing groups in partnership with Friends General Conference. Together we are creating more opportunities for Friends to be in spiritual community with one another.

Join us Wednesday, October 28 at 8pm Eastern / 5pm Pacific.

(We will also meet November 25, so mark your calendars).

Fire Updates re Quaker Centers


Ben Lomond Quaker Center has survived the CZU fires.

Despite losing nearly 2,000 feet of waterline and two-years-worth of firewood, QC managed to avoid losing any buildings. For that we are so grateful and hold in the Light so many neighbors who were not so fortunate. We hope to find ways to help and support those in need.

Unburdening Our Hearts


We are in the business of unburdening our hearts.
If it’s too heavy, it’s not worth carrying.

Fall brings grief, loss, and decay. Fall also brings breath, generosity, divine connection, unburdening, and balance. 

I dug into the season of autumn and found a huge backstory. Inspired by Chinese medicine, meditations, teachers, and Quakers along the way. 

There is an odor to decay. Sometimes it stinks to make changes. 

We have to let things decay to return as new growth.

Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons


We seek to live our lives in reverence for all life on Earth, encompassing right-sharing of the world’s resources amongst all people and all species. Friends are called to enter into right relationship with Earth and the community of life it supports.
