Weaving the Tapestry 2015-2020

What does the Religious Society of Friends need from a Friends World Committee in the 21st century? After a year of consideration and hours of consultation, the Executive Committee is pleased to share the new strategic plan for the Section of the Americas, "Weaving the Tapestry 2015-2020", in English and Spanish.

    hands weaving
  • Increasing intervisitation across all the cultural barriers among Friends
  • Better training of Representatives to be bridges among Friends,
  • Exploring alternative funding streams as we move toward our vision:

    An integrated and thriving network of Friends
    from the Arctic to the Andes,
    woven together in transformational faith,
    learning to love, listen and witness.
