Friends- 

The Committee on Worship and Ministry of Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting is pleased to announce that, in support of our Meeting community, we will be offering a weekly online Meeting for Worship at 11 am on Sunday mornings. While we recognize that this will not be the same as gathering in person, we feel it is the right course of action in this time of national emergency. Our hope is to make our virtual worship experience as simple and as close to normal as possible.

Due to COVID-19, Meeting for Worship is cancelled this Sunday, March 15 and until further notice.  Friends Center will be closed this Saturday, March 14 and Sunday March 15.

In a report to the October 2017 CPMM newsletter I summarized my year-and-a-half travel in the ministry of equality featuring the book Viking Economics.  Starting in 2016, I travelled to 20 states and four foreign countries, usually at the initiative of Friends but also speaking at bookstores, universities, and other public forums.
