Please join us for an author event with Pamela Haines. Details forthcoming!
An Evening of Poetry, Music, and Thought
Join Friends Council on Education for an evening of Light — poetry, music, thought — to uplift and sustain us on this next stretch of the road we are traveling.
Listen to and be inspired by educators and artists offering reflections on “Who are we called to be in this moment?”
Participate in small groups for dialogue and sharing leadings about who we are called to be, your own sources of faith and Light, and how this connects to how you travel forward in today’s world.
Philadelphia Yearly Meeting Poem 2020
Our Annual Sessions poet-in-residence, Zenaida Peterson, will weave
together a yearly meeting POEM based on your reflections!
All ages are invited to participate and Families with children can work together. You can assist younger children in writing their lines of poetry, or scribe for them. We hope everyone in a household will share as they are led!
How do we find Spirit in the shadows during this time?
What does it mean to be Faithful now?
- Begin your poetry experience:
- Pick one of the queries to reflect upon. Set a timer for 15 minutes.
