Cleveland Friends Meeting
FIRST MONTH (January) 2019
First Day (Sunday) 1/20
1:00 pm - Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business
Join with us and other people of faith and conscience in a weekly interfaith prayer vigil every Thursday from 4:00 PM to 4:45PM.
Our goal is to unite and amplify many faith voices calling for compassion and justice to guide the actions of ICE and to bear witness to ICE-imposed injustices and human rights violations taking place in our communities. We welcome non-partisan signage that lifts up values of justice, peace, compassion and hospitality to the immigrant.

Sing and rejoice, ye Children of the Day and of the Light; for the Lord is at work in this thick night of Darkness that may be felt: and Truth doth flourish as the rose, and the lilies do grow among the thorns, and the plants atop of the hills, and upon them the lambs doth skip and play. And never heed the tempests nor the storms, floods nor rains, for the Seed Christ is over all and doth reign. And so, be of good faith and valiant for the Truth.
George Fox, 1663
We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government, nor are we for this party nor against the other, but we are for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom, that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness, righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with God, and with one another, that these things may abound.
Edward Burrough, 1659

In addition, the 4 members of the Loftis-Hinshaw family made the trip to Washington D.C. to join the massive demonstration there.
