How does FWCC give you hope?
In 2007, I didn’t know other people who were interested in reaching out across the Quaker schisms. My experience at my first Section Meeting changed my life. I saw that there were hundreds of Friends who cared. FWCC gave me hope.
In 1937, Quakers all over the world were frightened by war, the rumors and realities of conflict and the bitter economic hardships all around them. The founding of the Friends World Committee for Consultation gave them hope of overcoming that isolation and devastation.
In 2017, do you feel like people are just not listening to each other? Are you worried that these growing divisions in the world are destroying your hopes for your community, your family, our Earth? Does the continued existence of FWCC give you hope that a different way is possible?
At the Section of the Americas Meeting this March, I heard Friends say, just like I did ten years ago, “I thought I was the only one, but now I have more hope for the Religious Society of Friends.” With your financial contributions as well as your prayers, we will continue to bring more hope to more people in 2018.
