Julie Harlow, Davis Friends Meeting, writes:
Dear Friends everywhere,
John Lennon asked us to “Imagine all the people living life in peace”
I am asking you to imagine Friends all around the globe, extending their hands to each other, making a human rainbow chain touching every land, as we “stand still in that power that brings peace (George Fox)”.
I am inviting you to participate with Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC) in realizing such a vision on World Quaker Day, 2 Oct. and in celebrating the diversity and geographical reach of Quakers. The Daily International Meeting for Worship for Peace will be expanded to welcome up to 1000 participants and extended to 90 minutes.
For more information and to access the link to the meeting please go to World Quaker Day 2022.
The Fellowship of Friends of African Descent (FOFAD) warmly invites Quakers of African Descent, regardless of yearly meeting affiliation, to Gather virtually in worship and fellowship, from Friday, August 12, 2022 to Sunday, August 14, 2022.

Gerald Jimmy Jr. is a member of the Fort Worth Monthly Meeting and former clerk of SCYM. He is at peace after a long illness. His gentle spirit will live on in the memories of many SCYM Friends.
