About the Peace and Service Committee
8 Members. Term: 2 years. Meets monthly. Reports in May. Hosts in January. Welcomes attenders.
The Peace and Service Committee builds a bridge between the individual concerns of those in the Meeting Community and the Meeting as a whole, and seeks ways for the Meeting to support the leadings and social concerns activities of individual members.
- supports those who are endeavoring to be faithful to the Friends Peace Testimony;
- presents opportunities for individuals to become involved in solutions to social problems on community, national and international levels; and
- educate Friends about the need to develop local and international understanding and engagement in the Quaker testimonies, including environmental action, peace, racial and social justice, equity, and service.
The committee may organize activities for the Meeting to engage in social justice actions such as a post-card writing table, lectures and discussions, adult class presentations, and local actions.
The committee will also inform members and attenders through Communications of activities in the Meeting, PYM area, and wider community that they might want to engage in.
