June 16 – Year One: Who We are, What We’ve Done, and How You Can Take Part
Quaker Voice of Maryland is hosting a virtual event on June 16th @ 7PM. Quaker Voice is hosting this event to connect with Friends across Maryland to share about what our group is, what we accomplished during the 2020 General Assembly, and how Friends in Maryland can join our work. Go to our website (www.quakervoicemd.org) for more information about the event and RVSP. We ask that you RSVP in advance so we can send you information on how to access our Zoom room. A great place to learn more about Quaker Voice is through our resource page -- this page has been recently updated with a letter from our clerk, Molly Mitchell, and a summary of the progress of our legislative priorities during the 2020 General Assembly. If you have any questions you can contact Quaker Voice directly via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Looking forward to “seeing” you there!
June 17 - 20 - Quaker Spring: A Radically Unprogrammed Gathering of Friends
For the past decade, Quaker Spring has offered Friends of all persuasions an opportunity to experience a time of open listening to the leadings of the Inner Light, the Inward Christ. This year's gathering will take place online, but in the same spirit of fellowship and discernment. We will gather at 2 pm on Wednesday, June 17 to introduce ourselves and share visions for our time together. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 18-20, there will be Bible reading and open worship in the morning, followed by conversation over a virtual bag lunch. There will be opportunities for small group meetings in the afternoon, and we will have evening plenaries organized around concerns that rise up within the group. Anyone is welcome to participate in all or any part of the program. To register, go to www.quakerspring.org, or contact us at email@example.com.
