Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Eco-Justice, Equality and Earthcare

Evening Programs
Date and Time: 
Friday, July 7, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:45pm

Quakers have the power and historical momentum to be heard. Friends are poised to drop a pebble, — which in co-creation with spirit, can swell ripples into mighty waves.

Deepening our impact on societal transformation requires commitment to the internal work needed to viscerally experience unity among ourselves, and with the planet. The time has come to listen deeply to spirit, and live into the wisdom of natural living systems. We must open ourselves to perpetual transformative self-examination in order to build the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual muscle needed to navigate the uncertain times ahead.

Pamela Boyce Simms is a Leadership Coach who convenes the Mid-Atlantic Transition Hub, a six-state network of environmental activists.  She is a Buddhist-Quaker, a United Nations ECOSOC Representative of Quaker Earthcare Witness (QEW), clerk of New York Yearly Meeting’s Earthcare Working Group, a Henry J. Cadbury Fellow at the Pendle Hill Quaker Study Center, and a contributing editor at the Grassroots Economic Organizing Editorial Collective.  She demonstrates how working with the pain of the world can be a vehicle for self and community transformation.
