    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.
