ARE: William Penn & Equality
Date: 04/14/2019
Time: 9:30:00 AM
Description:  April 14th: ARE: William Penn & Equality 

 On Sunday, April 14, at 9:30 a.m., in the Music Room (basement) of the SAM Building, Deborah Haines of Alexandria Meeting will discuss William Penn and equality. She has led many well-received ARE discussions in the past.

By way of background, when William Penn first arrived in the new colony of Pennsylvania in 1682, he quickly put in place a system for organizing settlement of the land. He ordered his surveyors to move outward from Philadelphia, creating contiguous townships consisting of small farms laid out along either side of a central road. William Penn’s townships have received little attention from historians, but they were just as much an expression of religious values as New England’s famed village centers.
Come learn more about how the egalitarian Quaker concept of community shaped the landscape of southeastern Pennsylvania in the seventeenth century, and helped lay the foundations for American democracy. For more information: Ron Wetteroth (see Directory) If you need child care in order to attend, please contact Marion Harrell (see Directory) by April 7.

 Exp with Light (2nd Sun)
Date: 04/14/2019
Time: 7:30:00 PM
Description:
  How do we quiet our brains enough to hear the still, small voice within us? How might we deepen our experience of meeting for worship? Experiment With Light is a meditative and centering practice based upon Rex Ambler’s book Light to Live By, which describes early Quaker meditative habits and translates them into a highly accessible process of clearness and understanding. EWL is normally held on the 2nd & 4th Sundays at 7:30 at the home of either Jane Melany Coe or Peter/Ruth Nielson-Jones. Please check the weekly Bulletin or monthly Newsletter for up-to-date details.
