Welcome

Sunday, July 19, 2020

Spokane Friends is pleased to announce that recently appointed Francisco Burgos, Executive Director of Pendle Hill, will address our community on Sunday, July 19, 2020 at 10 AM @ http://zoom.us/j/98493981347.  His topic will be “The Unbearable Shining of the Light.”

 The Spokane public is invited to join the meeting, one we feel will offer a sensitive understanding from the Quaker position that in silence each person’s innermost needs will be addressed. Discernment is expected in sharing insights vocally when Dr. Burgos addresses our meeting.

Pendle Hill’s vision is to create harmony in the world by transforming lives.  The Quaker institution, founded in 1930 out of a 17th Century tradition, speaks against Francisco photothe burdens of racism, and is active vocally about ending oppression and building a nation based on principals of faith.

Paul Blankenship, spiritual leader of Spokane Friends, founded in January of 1951, observes of  Francisco Burgos: “Our community is honored by his gesture in support of common values.”  Spokane Friends considers the offering a very special event to share with all who care to ZOOM-in. 

Quaker worship endorses the belief that a direct experience of God is possible.  It reflects trust that all who take part, both in silent worship and spoken ministry, seek inward communication leading to outward non-violent action.  

 

Announcement:  Spokane Friends has opened the Meeting House for public worship, observing Gov. Inslee’s directives for safety.  Those not attending in person are continuing to worship via Zoom (see link below).
