We are very excited that Peter Blood and Annie Peterson will be holding a workshop (at our Meetinghouse) and a concert (at the First Unitarian Congregation) on April 21, 2018. Annie and Peter are well-known North American Quakers and are the producers of the song books Rise Up Singing and Rise Again. You can find all the details (plus more about Annie and Peter) at their website. If you have local questions, contact the webminder (email@example.com) and we'll figure out who can help you.
The St. Lawrence Valley Regional Gathering will take place in Mountain Grove, ON from June 15-17. Topics will be 1) Healing and Reconciliation of Communities (HROC) and 2) Job creation. For HROC, we hope to hear how trauma is managed in Africa as members of the Congolese Quaker community in Montreal join us. The second theme of job creation may expand our thinking last year when we learned of a basic guaranteed income.
Ottawa Monthly Meeting is currently blessed with an abundance of Young Adult Friends.* Many of the YAFs are now meeting for a potluck about once a month. If you self-identify as a YAF and aren't yet connected to this group, ask around on a Sunday or send the webminder an e-mail and I'll put you in touch.
*Quaker-speak for people roughly in their 20's and 30's who have a connection to Quakers.
It is our tender and Christian advice that Friends take care to keep to truth and plainness, in language, habit, deportment and behaviour; that the simplicity of truth in these things may not wear out nor be lost in our days, nor in our posterity's; and to avoid pride and immodesty in apparel, and all vain and superfluous fashions of the world.
