News & Announcements
In his article (link above), MMFP member Paul Laskow explains the stewardship of a historical trust under the care of the monthly meeting, originally intended for Black students at Anthony Benezet's school. Benezet was a member of the Philadelphia Monthly Meeting in the late eighteenth century.
Adult Education has lined up some interesting speakers and topics for monthly sessions.
We hold meeting for worship twice a week, once on Wednesday evening at 6:00 and the other on Sunday mornings at 10:30. Midweek worship lasts about 45 minutes and we do a full hour on Sundays. We typically share the links to join the virtual meeting via email and it's hosted through zoom. If you already have Zoom installed on your computer, you can skip to Step 2.
With the current spike in covid cases and after consulting other members of the W&M committee as well as the clerk and alternate clerk of MMFP, it has been decided that in person MFW at the meetinghouse on alternate Sundays will be suspended, effective immediately at least until January 2021, when the situation will be reevaluated.
If you are looking for more information on how grants are made to needy Friends, please click on the "Resources" tab at the top of the page. There you will find links to the application forms. Please note that the application cannot be made by the person in need; rather, the monthly meeting's designated Care committee clerk or other individual must attend to this task.
As we adjust our lives to social distancing/sheltering at home/working at home, John Gallery has suggested that Friends can read The Journal of John Woolman independently over the next several weeks. Then we can meet together to discuss what was learned, once it's possible to do so. The Journal is readily available in print, and via Project Gutenberg (search for it on Google). If you're interested in learning more, please contact John directly.
