January is Peace Month

Good Morning Everyone,

I wanted to alert you to what we are doing in the coming month. Northwest Yearly Meeting hosts a “Peace Month” in January, which gives us an opportunity to delve into our testimony of peace as well as what it means for us as Quakers to be a part of the historical peace church movement. We have been working to plan a fun month with plenty of ways to learn and be challenged.

There has been a daily devotional reading book made up of writings from people in our yearly meeting. (You can find that here Link). There will most likely be hard copies of this available soon (I’m hoping the YM sends us this still!).

Scheduled Events:

  • January 2 — Making Peace with Loss: A Worship Service for Grieving and Preparing for a New Year
  • January 9 — Music by Seth Martin and “Participation Sunday.” Bring your participation cards. We will talk about “Making Peace through Participation.”
  • January 16 — Special Visitor T. Vail Palmer Jr. will share his experience as a conscientious objector in World War II.
  • Sunday 23 — 19th Century Quaker Lucretia Mott and Galatians 3
  • Sunday January 30 — Our Stories and Callings of Peace // Extended Open Worship
