Christian mystic and theologian whose 14th century book 'Revelations of Divine Love" was the first book written in English by a woman. Mary McKerrall will share about her life and how her writing aligns with Quaker theology, then facilitate discussion of 2 or 3 of her showings, or revelations.

"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord" (Psalms). Note that the verse doesn't mention perfect pitch! There will be community singing again this Wednesday at 7 pm before Silent Worship at 8. Participants are welcome to bring a brown-bag supper if needed. The Wednesday Night Discussion Group is continuing its exploration of potluck and poetry nights, community singing, and an upcoming series of Quaker Dialogues, designed to get to know each other and ourselves more deeply.
As we feel called to speak truth to power, we need to know how to do so effectively.
This Sunday's First Day School draws on the training member Tom Cassidy received as part of FCNL's Youth Advocate Corps and Brent Sullivan's experiences in the field.
Please keep in mind that we may continue with worship sharing after rise of meeting for worship.
First of a monthly series of discussions on the fourth Sunday of each month so long as there is interest. Dr. Bob Stecker and MaryBeth Smith will co-facilitate. It is open to people of all ages. What's the difference between those who become elderly, and those who become Elders? How can we support our Elders and learn from their wisdom? How do Elders function within their communities and in society at large? Dr. Bob has years of experience in counseling families and individuals as they face important life transitions. The transition to being an Elder can be a dynamic and fulfilling process. Dr. Bob has recent and personal experience with the various issues faced by adult children and their chronologically-enhanced parents. Opportunities for meaningful dialog arise when these loved ones can share - what it's like to grow older - what you would like to share with those who come after you - how to make your desires - and expectations - known - how to adapt to changing physical and mental faculties and much more. Join us and learn how to follow the Inner Light to grow into your own individual elderhood.
Join us to ask questions about Quaker faith and practice and share about our individual spiritual journeys in light of that faith and practice.

AVP Basic Workshop
The Alternatives to Violence Project
February 3 - 5, 2017
- AVP is dedicated to reducing violence: on the streets, at work, in schools, in homes, and in relationships everywhere
- AVP provides tools for creative, nonviolent resolution to conflicts used by peace workers such as Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Jesus of Nazareth, and many others
The Basic AVP Workshop is fun and empowers personal growth—an interactive, intensive, 2½-day experience that hones interpersonal conflict-resolution skills. Experiential exercises, small groups, and one-to-one interactions build community and trust around the themes of:
Affirmation & Self Esteem
Communication & Cooperation
Creative Conflict Resolution
Mission Statement: AVP is an all-volunteer organization offering experiential workshops that empower individuals to liberate themselves and others from the burden of violence. Our fundamental belief is that there is a “power for peace” in everyone, and that this power works through individuals who are open to it to transform violence to nonviolence. AVP builds on a spiritual base of respect and caring for self and others.
