Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Let Love Be the First Motion

Evening Programs
Date and Time: 
Monday, June 30, 2014 - 7:00pm

Love comes in many forms, and the motion of love in our lives can lead us to a wide variety of actions. We'll hear from three Friends whose lives and work in the world are shaped-- in very different ways-- by the motion of love.

Unfortunately, one of our original speakers, Judy Anne Williams, has had to cancel. We are excited to welcome Su Penn as one of the Monday evening plenary speakers.



Su Penn writes letters, blog posts, essays, and lists. She has been active with Friends for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Concerns for many years, and works to live out their spirit-led commitment to radical inclusion. She will speak as led about spirituality and sexuality, with the guidance and accompaniment of her dear friend Walt Whitman.





Victoria Greene, founder of the Philadelphia-based nonprofit organization Every Murder is Real, will tell the story of how the death of her son motivated her work to support the families of murder victims and transform cultures of violence.




Noah Baker Merrill, a co-founder of Quaker Voluntary Service and Secretary of New England Yearly Meeting, will speak to the theme as led, from his personal experience.
