Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

News & Announcements

The FFM First Day School obtained a rainbow PEACE flag from Common Street Spiritual Center in Natick, and attached it to the meetinghouse sign along Edmands Rd.  This replaces the faded rainbow PACE flag that hung for a long time on a wall inside.  The First Day School had a lesson on "Discernment" practicing what to do about some of the pictures and posters that were taken off the walls for painting, and one of our young ones suggested we should not only replace the faded flag, but fly it visibly outside the meetinghouse.  Job accomplished on June 11, 2017!

9 members and attenders at Framingham Friends meeting, 3 additional attenders, and 3 facilitators participated in an Alternatives to Violence Program workshop at the meetinghouse March 17-19.  Rather than soporific presentations and discussions, we enjoyed a lively and engaging series of exercises and games, teaching us to listen, to build community, and to be more positive and adaptable in our responses to conflict.  In the process, we got to know and appreciate ourselves and each other in new ways.  The skills and understandings we developed are directly applicable to responding effective
