We are Green Street Friends Meeting

"The first step to peace is to stand still in the Light."

George Fox

Meeting for Worship,

Our First Day School for Children meets from 10:30 to 11:15 AM so that all children can join in the last 15 minutes of the worship service.

Not to be missed!

It is election time in the USA once again, and a good time to reflect on the May elections in Ukraine, monitored by Green Street member Michael Dockhorn.

Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting

PROGRAM MEETING THIS SUNDAY, October 26, 12:30 to 2:30 pm (after a POT LUCK lunch at 11:45 am) IF YOU PLAN TO STAY, please bring something simple for lunch.

I invite you to gather at Green Street MM for a program that springs from stirrings at PYM sessions and the recent Friends Journal issue on Friends of Color. We'll explore responses to two crises - Racism (including within the Society of Friends) and Climate Change. Are these separate issues or inextricably connected?

7 Friends will share their thoughts: Susan Christian, Victoria Greene, Gabbreell James (all of GSMM), Jondhi Harrell (GMM), and Pamela Haines, Amy Kietzman, and Rita Varley (all of CPMM), followed by small group discussion on queries we invite you to take back to your meetings for further discernment.
