What's New

By George Lakey

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.

For several years, many CPMM members and attenders have been showing up at the Monthly Meeting Room at 9:30 on the third Sunday of the month for Sharing Our Spiritual Journeys sponsored by Worship & Ministry. Over the next nine or ten months, Worship & Ministry and Adult Religious Education will share this time slot. The series for sharing spiritual journeys will continue some third Sundays at 9:30; Adult Religious Education will host other events on other third Sundays at 9:30.

If we are proud of our heritage of opposition to slavery, we have no choice but to take a stand on mass incarceration. Last spring Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting passed a minute in opposition to mass incarceration.

When we arrived at the neighborhood rec center for the town hall meeting, almost all the seats were already filled. More and more chairs were brought in to accommodate the growing crowd, and still people were left standing.
