April Meeting for Business and Right Sharing Potluck 

April 8th, 2018: 9am – Meeting for Business followed by worship at 11am and Right Sharing for World Resources Potluck at noon.  Right Sharing of World Resources is an independent Quaker not-for-profit organization pursuing the abundance of God’s love through wealth redistribution. RSWR funds micro-enterprise projects with marginalized women in Kenya, India, and Sierra Leone. The Right Sharing Simple Meal is about mindfulness, calling us to be mindful of our abundance and to share our bounty with others in a way that is rightly ordered. It is an outward expression of the Divine center within us, putting our faith into action. The Simple Meal raises awareness of how we live, and how our use of resources impacts the ways our fellow humans are able to use resources. Sponsoring a Simple Meal reminds Friends “To live simply so others may simply live” and gives us an opportunity to perceive and follow urgings of the Holy Spirit. Examples of dishes to bring are soups, bread,  simple vegetable dishes, and fruit.  There will be a donation box for the RSWR organization.

Piano player wanted!

We are searching for a skillful piano player to accompany our hymn singing at the rise of Meeting each Sunday. For more information, please contact office@statecollegefriends.org.  Address the email to Martin Melville of the Worship and Ministry Committee.
