    Upcoming Events

    • Introduction to Faithfulness Groups for those called to Earthcare

      Marcelle Martin and Mary Ann Percy will introduce Faithfulness Groups as an ongoing small group practice to support Friends (and others) in their work, ministry, and leadings around Earthcare, environmental witness, environmental justice, ecological grief, education about climate change, and building resilient communities.

      If you are interested in learning about these small groups, including their format, and how they can support you and others led by the Spirit in this work, join us for an introduction on June 7, 7:30 – 9 pm (Eastern Time).

      Those who participate in this evening event and wish to learn more, and/or find others to join in an ongoing group will have the opportunity to sign up for a 3-hour workshop that will be held on June 10 (1-4 pm Eastern/10 am to 1 pm Pacific).

      In 2002, Brent and Nancy Bill acquired fifty acres of her father's farmland to build a house across the road from him. Brent will share how and why this land was transformed into a wildlife habitat and protected forest and how he was transformed as well.

    • June Worship Sharing with Quaker Earthcare Witness

      Quaker Earthcare Witness is hosting monthly online worship sharing groups.

      In worship sharing, we gather in small groups to focus on a particular question (or questions) to explore our own experience and share with each other more deeply than we would in normal conversation. It seeks to draw us into sacred space, where we can take down our usual defenses, and encounter each other in “that which is eternal.” We welcome all to join us!

      Together we are creating more opportunities for Friends who care deeply about the Earth and each other to be in spiritual community with one another. We hope you can join us.
