JP Quakers hosted a spirited interfaith vigil June 30 "Time for Peace on the Street." We had good and sometimes moving conversation among ourselves and with passers by. A couple of cars who could see our signs above the parked cars honked, including one full of teenagers. Join us for this month's vigil Tuesday June 28 from 7-8 p.m.
The rain did not dampen our first Freedom School June 28, a deep and searching discussion on Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and nonviolence today. Our next intergenerational Freedom School, Sunday, July 26
, from 5-7 p.m., explores the physical, emotional, and spiritual costs of guns. If you are interested in helping with street outreach to teens, letting them know about the workshop, call Greg Williams, 617-501-6258
(leave a message), or e-mail gcw...@yahoo.com
Our monthly community potluck and meeting for worship will of course continue as well. Our next meeting is Sunday, July 12.
Potluck supper is at 5 p.m., followed by Quaker meeting for worship at 6 p.m. The trailer has microwaves but no conventional oven, so if you bring a potluck dish that needs reheating, please make sure it's in a microwave-safe container.
