Charlotte Friends Meeting Minute
Supporting the Work of the NC Commission of Inquiry on Torture
For the last seven years Charlotte Friends Meeting has joined over 135 area congregations, colleges and YMCAs to partner with the Urban Ministry Center to provide winter shelter to homeless neighbors. Last year this community-wide, inter-faith Room in the Inn program served more than 1,400 people.
Our experience has shown that active participation in the life of the Meeting community can deepen and enrich our understanding of Quakerism and what it means to be a Friend. Participating in committees provides us with opportunities to gain first-hand experience of Quaker principles in action. It also enables us to share and build our own gifts, talents and interests while encouraging others to do the same.
