We will reflect and envision together:

What roles are Friends uniquely called to play in this moment?

Pandemic, economic stress, racial justice, political uncertainty, climate change: This time is challenging, yes.  But Friends have a history, a vision, a set of practices, an interconnected community, and a readiness to be called.  We are not helpless in this time.   Is it our role to deepen, listen, wait?  To engage, act, risk?  We will be guided if we listen, and if we have the courage to act, way will open.  What roles are Friends uniquely called to play in this moment?  What canst thou say? 


from Jim Anderson and Nancy Wilkinson, Western Friend (to be 8/10/2020)
