How do you connect with Friends around the world?
The Friends World Committee for Consultation, Section of the Americas has created many beautiful new tools for you this year. There’s a shiny new website, packed with resources and an updated directory of meetings; a fresh and colorful brochure; five new FWCC-related QuakerSpeak videos and sample lesson plans creatively designed so that anyone can use them to tell the stories of our world-wide family of Friends.
On my first visit to the new website, I was struck by the great potential for collaboration with Quakers around the world. As I browsed, I was already imagining the ways we can put these new resources to use. The biggest thrill for me is taking these tools out of the box, sharing them with Friends, and allowing God to work through us, bringing connection and transformation across the Section and throughout the world.
I urge you to visit our new website and see the new tools for yourself!
The Friends World Committee, with God’s guidance, allows Friends to cross boundaries, make connections and live the transformation. FWCC has changed my life, and is changing the world. This is the gift we are creating together: engagement leading to transformation.
Please join me in making a generous financial gift to the Section of the Americas so we can create more tools and ensure that they will be widely shared and well-used. Our growing toolbox helps us on our way. I see marvelous opportunities on the horizon!
