January Quarterly Meeting, Kennett Friends Host

Kennett Friends Meeting will host in January, 2018.

Our morning program will be a follow up to the discussion we began at October QM, about how we live our Quaker values. If you missed October, Friend Gail has offered a lovely write up in this post: http://westernquarterquakers.org/october-quarterly-meeting-discussion-part-one/

ending will our call to action: Each of us is invited to do HOMEWORK for next Quarterly Meeting in mid-January at Kennett Meetinghouse:
Set an intention of creating some Peace. Try the experiment in a way new for you, and see where this experiment leads.  We should all bring our results to Kennett in January!

There will be a wonderful Youth program, as well, led by Guen Findley and Christian Garber.

Kennett Friends are providing lunch of soups & sandwiches. Friends are welcome to contribute sides or desserts as led.
