The Ministry and Council Committee has recommended that we suspend our use of Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundationl through April 12th. There is no implication that our use will resume on any particular date; we will reevaluate in April when more is known.

From the Clerk, Rick Brice

Friends, Increasingly, we are being encouraged to avoid gatherings in order to help reduce the possibility of contracting the Corona virus.  After consulting with several Friends, physical Meetings have been suspended.

 Our Meeting accepts that not everyone has the same journey of faith, and that each of us may express our spiritual beliefs in different ways. You will find no written dogma, nor will you be asked to recite a prayer or sing a hymn that expresses someone else's beliefs. We strive to listen to the "still small voice within" for guidance in all our meetings.   

Quaker Meeting for Worship is a vibrant silence of waiting in expectancy. The silence is not an emptiness crying out to be filled, but a disciplined and contemplative openness to the Spirit of God. Our practice is to listen attentively to the harmony of the silent waiting and to the ministry that may arise from the silence. 

We value the testimonies of simplicity, peace, integrity, community and equality.  

The first step to peace is to stand still in the Light....George Fox, 1653

From the Friends Committee on National Legislation:

Every day, we at FCNL hear the same question from people around the country: “what can I do to change what’s happening in the world?” And, our 75 years on Capitol Hill have shown us the answer: you can lobby!

According to congressional staff, Constituent lobby visits are the most effective way to influence the policy decisions of members of Congress. If you’ve been calling your members of Congress’ offices and are ready to take the next step, this is your opportunity.
