Following children's message, kids are dismissed for children's church downstairs.
As a Society of Friends Meeting, we stand in solidarity with this statement from Friends Committee on National Legislation:
"As we stand with protesters throughout the country calling for radical social transformation, we affirm that Black lives matter. We know that those of us who are white must confront racism in ourselves and in the institutions we care about - our faith communities, our schools, our neighborhoods, our
families, our Congress."
As part of the Society of Friends, we seek to let our lives speak our commitment to Quaker values:
Simplicity: Friends believe that the most important things in life aren't things.
Peace: Friends believe there is always a path that brings peace, justice, dignity, and respect.
Equality: Friends believe that every person is equally loved by God, no matter what.
Stewardship: Friends believe that all God's gifts are entrusted to us for the sake of future generations.
Integrity: Friends believe that our words and actions must reflect our truest selves.
Community: Friends believe that we need each other, since each and every one of us is precious in our community.
