Penn Valley Friends
After worship this coming First Day, Friends will do some spring cleaning in the Meetinghouse. Feel free to bring a sack lunch and preferred cleaning supplies.
Operating with the belief that all truth is simple and easy to understand we invite each other to respond to the scripture by reading the word with who we are. It is suggested we read the chosen scripture each day and when and if we feel the urge to respond on paper we journal our response and on Sunday morning at 9:00 we share our response. We might share a prayer, poem, short story,drawing, song, or another scripture from other Holy books. We begin with silence and end in silence.
All are welcome to join us. From Sharon Eiker.
The White Privilege Conference is coming to Kansas City, Thursday, April 27-Sunday, April 30, 2017, at the Downtown Marriott. Penn Valley Friends will be providing hospitality and a potluck dinner for Quaker attendees at the conference. Make sure you mark your calendars and attend if at all possible. And, if not able to do that, do help us put out the welcome mat to our Quaker Friends from throughout the U.S. by planning on attending worship and the potluck dinner after on Thursday evening.
"A Quaker testimony is a belief that stems from our fundamental understanding of religious truth. It is a corporately held belief about how we should individually act.
This section includes resources on how to discern that one is being led to share a message in worship.
To give you a taste of what being Quaker means, we are sharing some videos from Quakerspeak. Feel free to listen to the voices of Quakers from throughout the larger community.
