Persistence of Bulungi Shade Tree Friends


Dear Friends:

In the past 17 months, Bulungi Tree Shade Friends Meeting experienced the killing of two members, including the head of a new worship group; the police torture of eight members; the fleeing of 40 of their members from the country, including the co-clerk; numerous beatings requiring serious hospitalization as members attempted to intervene in lynchings, and more.

Still, they persist. The following are reports from their Clerk Hellen Tanyinga, and a question and answer from me.

Quaker Women’s Theology Conference


In these times of hope and uncertainty, we know that the Pacific NW Quaker Women’s Theology Conference will be a meaningful way to re-connect, learn, and enjoy nature and each other's company after the covid-19 crisis is over. The conference theme “Cultivating Faith and Hope in Troubled Times” is ever more relevant.

But when will that be? The answer is not yet clear.

Beyond Quakerism 101


The crises of the past year have shaken humanity to the core. As we turn the corner, the Light is streaming in through the cracks. Wisdom, courage and compassion are needed if global society is to emerge from this time healed and moving toward a just and caring future. Early Friends, ignited by the Spirit during tumultuous times, ushered lasting change into the culture despite their small numbers. How can we, as Friends, prepare to accompany the world into a new way of being?
