Burlington County college students and activists Ashlynn Conley and Jasmine Cartwright-Atkins join Moorestown F/friends to discuss Juneteenth, a celebration of emancipation in the U.S. Jasmine and Ashlynn will tell us something about the beginnings of this holiday, when many enslaved people in Texas first learned, on June 19, 1865, of the Emancipation Proclamation, almost three years after it officially ended legal enslavement. They will also discuss their plans for a second annual Juneteenth celebration at the Perkins Center in Moorestown on Saturday, June 19. All are welcome to join the conversation at 7:30pm on Thursday 10 June; click here or phone 646-558-8656 and use meeting ID 815 8781 6369.
Please join Moorestown Friends Meeting’s discussion of the third door, The Door Inward, from William Taber’s essay, ‘Four Doors to Meeting for Worship.’ Taber proposes that one way to enter a deeper experience of community worship is to imagine passing through a series of four stages, or doors; we discussed The Door Before in February and The Door Inward in March, and will reflect on The Door Beyond in May. Hard copies of this essay, Pendle Hill Pamphlet #306, are available from Pendle Hill for $7.50. All are welcome; click here to join, or phone 646-558-8656 and use meeting #785 699 478.
