    World Quaker Day 2014

    Tomorrow we will be celebrating World Quaker Day, Friends World Committee is the group that is responsible for hosting this event. The idea behind the event is:

    As the sun rises in each area of the world, we want to remember that Quakers are worshiping through every time zone, celebrating our deep connections across cultures and Quaker traditions. We are united in love and can accompany each other on this special day that draws us together. As we worship, let us hold each other in prayer and thanksgiving, and let our hymns of praise resound across the world. The theme Let Your Life Speak: Living the Kabarak Call for Peace and Ecojustice, connects us to the work we did at the World Conference of Friends in 2012 in Kenya, taking the work forward in the context of our spiritual communities. 

    We will be meeting at a Members house this Sunday (1st Day) to enjoy in the celebration. If you would like to attend then please email me at jlilly@lvquakers.org

    We will post pictures of this event as the come about.

    Update:
    We had a great time at the World Quaker Day meetup. We had a good group of approximately 9 in attendance, a great host and an Awesome assortment of store bought and home cooked food.

    Jennifer was gracious enough to host this event, thank you Jennifer for an amazing meetup.

After relocating to Las Vegas in 1984 my journey led me home to Guilford College and the friends there who helped me understand the meaning of what it was to be a quaker. So it was only natural that I seek them here in Las Vegas Nevada. Our meeting is Unprogrammed and very basic with refreshments at rise of meeting. I remember speaking to a janitor at Guilford College who was a conscientious objector and birthright quaker. I was later informed that he had a Phd In Philosophy. His penance was to do janitorial work at the college. What a noble endeavor.


  • My Trip to an Evangelical Friends Church

    Hello Everyone.

    I, Just did a recent trip to Corona California and I decided to look for a local Quaker meetup. I went to Google and typed in “Quaker Meeting Corona”and it gave me one result of http://www.coronafriendschurch.org/, and I noticed that it was an Evangelical friends Church and I had only been familiar with Un-programmed Meetings so this was going to be a little bit of an adventure. So here is a little run down of some of the notes that I took down during the service. Continue Reading →
