Kinship with All Life

Earth Day: April 22, 2018

Job 12: 7-10: “But ask the animals, and they will teach you; the birds of the air, and they will tell you; ask the plants of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of every human being.”

State of the Society Report to WYM, 2017

West Newton Friends is a small, semi-programmed, non-pastoral meeting that is very active in our community and the wider world. As such, the state of our local Society of Friends congregation is good. In 2017, we began working together to discern God’s future for our meeting. We have continued that process in 2018.

How are you nurturing your community and your world?
