Upcoming Events

  • Navigating the Storms – Prophetic Witness for an Earth Restored

    Monday, June 24th, 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific

    We live in a time of great change. Since 1945, the fate of Life on our tender planet has hung in the balance of human choice. If humanity does not soon develop wisdom and global solidarity, we will, through technological hubris, vain ambition, and age-old rivalries, unravel the thread of Life. In these trying times, how might we find solace and wisdom in the Mountains, Winds, and Seas of the Earth? How might we become students of the Living World? As Quakers, will we “garden as the world burns,” or will we rise to the heights of our tradition, take bold and unprecedented action, and rediscover our “Prophetic Voice?”

  • QEW Earthcare Center at the FGC Gathering

    Monday, July 1st, 7 a.m. Eastern-Friday July 5th, 5:30 p.m.

    Join us at the Friends General Conference (FGC) Gathering for a week of worship, conversations, and presentations.

Recurring Events

  • Monthly Worship Sharing

    Fourth Tuesday of each month, 7 p.m. Eastern time/4 p.m. Pacific time

    In worship sharing, we gather in small groups to focus on a particular query 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.”

  • Weekly Fellowship Hour

    Each Friday, 7 p.m. Eastern/4 p.m. Pacific

    Most Monthly Meetings have a fellowship hour for dialogue and discussions—the QEW Fellowship hour is designed to mimic this informal environment! Come as you are to discuss earthcare, spirituality, Quakerism, and catch up with other dear people in our community.
