West Newton Friends Meeting (church) is a fellowship of Quakers, seeking to live in close relationship to God. Because of God's love and grace for each of us and led by Jesus' example, we are committed to:
- welcoming all people regardless of ethnic origin, race, political party, sexual orientation, or gender identity
- working for peace and equality in our community and world
- working in our community and schools in whatever ways they think we might be helpful
"We are not for Names, nor Men, nor Titles of Government, nor are we for this Party, nor against the other, because of its Name and Pretence; but we are for Justice and Mercy, and Truth and Peace, and true Freedom, that these may be exalted in our Nation." -- Edward Burrough, 1634-1663
The quotations used in this space are from Quakers. The quotes will be changed often to give a feeling for the thinking of some of those who passed this way before us and Friends today.
