Evening Programs
Date and Time: 
Monday, June 30, 2014 - 7:00pm

Love comes in many forms, and the motion of love in our lives can lead us to a wide variety of actions. We'll hear from three Friends whose lives and work in the world are shaped-- in very different ways-- by the motion of love.





Judy Anne Williams, a youth worker, psychotherapist, and campus minister who has been active for many years in Friends for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Concerns, will speak on the relationship between sexuality and spirituality.




Victoria Greene, founder of the Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization Every Murder is Real, will tell the story of how the death of her son motivated her work to support the families of murder victims and transform cultures of violence.




Noah Baker Merrill, a co-founder of Quaker Voluntary Service and Secretary of New England Yearly Meeting, will speak to the theme as led, from his personal experience.
