Meeting for Worship for Friends of European Descent Confronting Racism

The Ministry on Racism is hosting a weekly Meeting for Worship for Friends of European Descent confronting racism and White Supremacy. As we continue anti-racism work in our home contexts, it is important to stay connected and supported in community. This worship seeks to nourish our communal anti-racism commitment. It will be held every Friday at 12 PM EDT / 11 AM CDT / 10 AM MDT / 9 AM PDT. It is in the care of a rotating team of co-facilitators.

First Sunday Reading for May 2023
May 7 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Participation in the Life of the Meeting

The working of the Spirit in our lives as Friends can be seen in many ways: through prophetic ministry, witness in the world, loving care for each other, conscientious attention to committee work, and the examples provided by lives lived in the Light. When meeting for worship holds a central place in our life, regular and punctual attendance follows.

When I was sixteen and first came to Quakers, I felt so much that I kept coming back. And I began to understand that Quakerism is cumulative. The more you enter into the silence and the stillness, the more that you ask to be washed in the Light, the more that you participate, the more you begin to understand that there is ground opening up beneath you that is larger and deeper than you first imagined.   John Calvi, 2009

  • Do we take an active part in the life of our meeting?
  • How has our group grown together through its activities?
  • Do we express our skills and gifts in service to the meeting and to the Spirit? Do we recognize and support others in doing so?

Do we visit one another in our homes, and keep in touch with those who are unable to participate fully in the life of the meeting?

Faith and Practice, NPYM, Religious Society of Friends. P. 48.

BCFM’s Peace and Justice Committee: Quaker Earthcare Witness Workshop “Regenerative Agriculture: Sustainable is Not Enough”
May 7 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Carol Barta, QEW Steering Committee

Why is sustainable not enough in the world of agriculture? What will it take to produce nutrient dense food on healthy soil?  Regenerative agriculture is a systems approach to restoring the health of our food system.  Over the course of the last four decades a growing number of farmers and ranchers have risked, stumbled and learned how to build healthy soil and healthy profits for their farms by going against the conventional wisdom.  Along the way they discovered that healthy soil is the basis for a healthy ecosystem and potentially a healthy planet. We’ll explore the component parts of regenerative agriculture and discuss why whole-system-thinking is the best way to feed the world.
