Wilton Quaker Meeting is inviting you to a scheduled online Meeting For Worship using Zoom

Dear Friends,

      Given the escalating COVID-19 virus situation, we have made some difficult decisions to balance our ability to worship as a community with the danger represented by even a few of us gathering to worship in person.  There is no guarantee that a person without symptoms is actually free of the virus, so we have chosen to err on the side of caution, especially given that many members of our Meeting are in age and health groups that pose extra risk.

Peter is a member of Wilton Quaker Meeting, co-clerk of Ministry and Oversite and an outspoken advocate for gun violence prevention.

Sunday, June 9, Purchase Quarter kicked off a new child-centered worship and fellowship for families. Scarsdale Meeting hosted this first gathering. We met for worship through a Faith & Play story on gifts and singing, played outside together and shared a simple meal. Children and their parents had fun and enjoyed connecting with one another. The next Quarterly Quaker Family Sunday Supper will be hosted by Wilton Meeting at the end of the summer. Families from within and beyond Purchase Quarter are welcome! Join us!

Great news! Today the House passed the Climate Action Now Act (H.R.9) by a vote of 231-190. The bill, which prevents the Trump administration from using federal funds to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement, passed with unanimous Democratic support and included Republican votes. The legislation also requires the administration to submit a plan to meet the United State’s goals under the agreement to Congress and update it annually.
