The Peace and Justice Committee of Newtown Quaker Meeting will present a program on An Urgent Call to the Religious Society of Friends to the adult class at the Meetinghouse on Sunday, September 25 at 9:45 a.m. All are welcome.
The Call to Action was authored by an ad hoc group of nineteen Quakers from across the country, more than half of whom are from the Philadelphia area. In the Call to Action, they cite forces they see at work in our country that are undermining some of our basic values: equality of all people, truth-telling, and deep listening. www.quakercall.net
On September 25, both in person at the Meetinghouse and on Zoom, small groups will discuss possible actions that individuals and the Quaker Meeting as a whole may feel called to take in the coming weeks in the four areas suggested by the Call: Defending Truth; Working for True Equality and Justice for All; Promoting Free and Fair Elections; Preparing for Nonviolent Resistance.
