October 2019 Events

October 6 – World Quaker Day

Friends World Committee for Consulation invites you to join Quakers around the world to celebrate the 6th annual World Quaker Day on Sunday 6 October. The theme, Sustainability: Planting Seeds of Renewal for the World We Love draws us into our shared experience of earth care and the spiritual imperative to sustain life on earth. It is a chance to celebrate our wonderful diversity of expression, whilst at the same time offering an important opportunity to learn about Friends’ experiences of climate breakdown in other parts of the world. You might consider sharing a sustainability story from your meeting or church with another group of Friends elsewhere in the world and beginning a dialogue. Please visit our website www.worldquakerday.org for resources, ideas on how to get involved and to share your story. We hope you will share your World Quaker Day experiences with FWCC. It can be very simple—a description, a poem, a few photos, or even a short video taken on a mobile phone. We will post it online for other Friends around the world to see. For instance, the Africa Section will be planting more than five thousand tree seedlings at the Farmers' Training Centre in Lugari Yearly Meeting, Kenya! Our vision is for Friends to have access to a montage of activity of all sorts via FWCC’s websites and the FWCC World Office Facebook page. Please email any items to us with WQD as the subject or post it on the Facebook page or Tweet us at @WorldQuakerDay #WQD2019.
