Keith S has been serving as an observer as part of the The World Council of Churches’ Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI). Every week or so he sends an email with news of his impactful experiences.
Area Meeting Walk, Alice Holt Forest.
On the last Monday evening of the month we invite you to a Becoming Friends course, at 7:30pm in The Friends Meeting House, 41 Park Rd, Woking GU22 7DB. For more information contact Irene 01483 720154 or Sheila, email@example.com
Every second Monday of the Month at the meeting house Park Road, Woking, a group of us read part of a chapter of Quaker Faith and Practice and then share whatever comes to mind. This is done in a meditative way by passing a shell from one person to another. You speak only when you have the shell and if you don’t want to say anything, just hold the shell and hold the silence for a moment.
Next session is Monday 9 Oct 2017
In anticipation that are budding apple trees will produce something like this!
All Welcome to join us for Shared Lunch 12 noon to 2pm, on Sunday 20 August 2017, at the meeting house 41 Park Road, Woking.
At the lunch we will be saying farewell to Keith who is going to Israel / Palestine for 3 months service.
Recommended: Film “Arrival”
Irene recently watched the film ‘Arrival’ and was very impressed by it for several reasons.
She wrote, “It is a thoughtful science fiction film about communication (no light sabres or space battles, although there is one explosion, presumably to keep the teenage boys interested!); its main character is an intelligent woman and, despite the story including a bereavement, its message is ultimately positive and life-affirming.”
“For Conscience Sake”, by theatre group Plain Quakers.
Following the Remembrance Service, Friends participated in a shared lunch followed by a performance of the play “For Conscience Sake”, by theatre group Plain Quakers.
The play explored the choices faced by conscientious objectors in the First World War, against the backdrop of growing militarisation today.
The audience of almost 30 people (including Friends from other local Meetings and some non-Quakers) were treated to an excellent and thought-provoking performance.
