Baltimore Yearly Meeting is the regional organizing unit for the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the area of central Pennsylvania, Maryland, parts of West Virginia, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. It is through membership in a Yearly Meeting that individual Quakers become connected with the larger Quaker movement worldwide. "In fellowship, in deep listening, in waiting worship, in commitment to each other, it richly rewards those who embrace the challenge of being a Yearly Meeting Friend." (2011 draft Faith and Practice)

Langley Hill Friends Meeting (McLean, VA)

The Friends Wilderness Center is focusing many of its programs for 2020 on the themes of connecting with Nature and of living sustainably. Our February 22nd program is a special off-site program held at Langley Hill Friends Meeting (6410 Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA 22101) to allow for a larger audience to participate in a dialogue about global climate disruption and how each of us can take action to mitigate it. Structured both to educate and to inspire, this 3-part program will hopefully inspire you to add your voice, your heart and your talents to shaping a sustainable future for future generations and the planet they will inhabit. As Kallan Benson, our youngest presenter, noted in her September 2019 speech to the gathered environmental delegates at the United Nations in New York, “Giving up is not an option.” A home-cooked lunch and dessert will be available for a charge of $10 with an advance reservation. Brown Bag lunches are permitted. Please RSVP to Sheila Bach by Monday, February 17th at naturesheila@gmail.com or 571-271-6267 if you plan to attend and let her know if you would like a meal when you do so.
