Come walk with us as Jamaica Plain Quakers travel from spirit into action, working over the Summer with teenagers and young adults in our community. Our next three fourth Sundays will be turned over to a Freedom School, seeking to make a contribution to end urban
violence and offer a positive nonviolent urban Quaker model. We are building a team of folks committed to developing an ongoing project with deep roots in the community. Come join us.
We began this walk together learning from other peacebuilders, such as Getry Avizah from Lubao, Kenya, who uses the Alternatives to Violence curriculum and the Healing and Rebuilding our Communities program to help her fellow Kenyans reconcile after violence in order to build a true lasting peace. As we embark on our next phase, we will begin to use what we have learned to host a Freedom School on Fourth Sundays June 28, July
26, and August 23, from 5 - 7 pm. We will open the summer with a vigil for peace. Watch your mailbox for an upcoming announcement.
Our monthly community potluck and meeting for worship will of course continue as well. Our next meeting is Sunday, June 14.
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. Come join us!
