Scattered throughout the meetinghouse are six graphic prints by Quaker artist Maggie Nelson. Each shows a portrait and a quote from the writings of a weighty Quaker. See if you can find them all. Thanks to Carol for this great new brochure.
In a newly found audio, the Civil Rights leader and Quaker, Bayard Rustin, explains why coming out as a gay man "was an absolute necessity." The audio is the latest episode of the podcast Making Gay History.
This recent list is making the rounds among Memphis Friends. Several years ago we did a group-read of one of the listed books, Invention of Wings.
Thank you, Ron and Susan, for obtaining and hanging the sign that we approved at business meeting to represent the meeting’s leading in support of immigrants and those living in fear. Communities United in One Voice (CUUV) asked faith communities to consider ways to show support during this holiday season, in the days of uncertainty leading up to the new Tennessee law, HB 2315.
George Fox, Margaret Fell, Mary Dyer, Lucretia Mott, Rufus Jones, and Bayard Rustin have arrived! Check out the images in the link below.
Set your clocks back tonight and get an extra hour of sleep!
