The Beacon Hill Friends Meeting Right Relations Working Group invites you to an exploratory conversation and workshop
Sunday, January 30th, from 12:30-2pm on Zoom
George Fox once said, "ye have no time but this present time." What does it mean to heed that advice, as Friends, when it comes to the crises of our era?
Friends have a long relationship with taking corporate action around issues of peace, specifically in regard to war and conscientious objection. From climate change, to racial injustices our country and our world face additional crises that Friends in New England have felt called to urgently respond to. But what does that look like?
In this workshop, Minga Claggett-Borne and Carole Rein will invite participants to consider what Quaker ministry through taking political action can look like, and how they might be called to step into making change.
Using presentation, individual reflection, worship-sharing, and drawing on their experiences, including Minga’s 10-day trip to Minnesota in support of Indigenous resistance to the Enbridge pipeline and Carole's arrest at the Bow, NH coal-powered plant for trespassing while promoting climate justice (which is now destined for a full jury trial), the workshop leaders will help us think about how we can respond to the Call to Right Relations with Indigenous people and with our planet.
