Toward Right Relationship Workshops are Zooming

~

Friends who have experienced the “Roots of Injustice, Seeds of Change: Toward Right Relationship with Native Peoples” workshop might be surprised by this: we are now offering this participatory, experiential workshop via Zoom.

It did seem impossible back in March and April when the pandemic was new. In the Toward Right Relationship workshops, people move around quite a bit, and the movement is a key component of the mental and emotional learning that takes place. So how could we possibly accomplish our goals with everyone sitting and staring at computers?

Quaker Vigil at the Border Wall

~

Mahatma Gandhi said: “Mute prayer is my most powerful weapon.” In this spirit, Friends from Pima Monthly Meeting alongside myriad other friends, held Meeting for Worship just after sunrise on September 14, 2020, a stone’s throw from the new US-Mexico border wall – near Sasabe, Arizona/Sonora.

This gathering inaugurated a week-long event: “Resist The Wall: Strengthen The Spirit. Resisting Border Violence Through Interfaith Action.” On the ensuing days, we were joined by Buddhists, Unitarian Universalists, and members of the Jewish community.

Lend a Hand to Friends in Moscow

Dear Friends,

Can you lend a helping hand?

The British charity Friends House Moscow is looking for an honorary Company Secretary to help oversee our finances and admin, in collaboration with the Chair of Trustees and the Treasurer.

We need someone with a little spare time who is comfortable with spreadsheets, and would be interested to delve into the workings of an international charity operating in multiple currencies. Duties are negotiable, with no fixed time commitment. Ability to speak Russian is not required!

Complacency

Dear Editor,

I am forwarding to you a message to share with Western Friend readers. I have already shared this message, as led by the Holy Spirit, with both my home meeting and with the leadership of Intermountain Yearly Meeting.
