Living Witness on Zoom!

Would you like to be part of a face-to-face Quaker sustainability gathering in 2022? If so, could you help to make it happen?
Living Witness trustees met in October and considered whether we should return to some of our former activities, supporting Quakers in developing our sustainability witness. We pulled back from those activities in 2017/18, hoping that there was sufficient commitment in the centrally managed work of Quakers in Britain to sustain annual sustainability gatherings and support leadings and initiatives arising from them. However, for a variety of reasons, there has not been a BYM Sustainability Gathering since 2018.

We would like to find out what energy there is among Friends in particular for holding a national face-to-face gathering in 2022, and more generally for trying to build a sense of unity in the wide variety of sustainability witness undertaken by Friends.

Our first step is to offer a series of Zoom meetings later this month. These will take place on three days, in the hope that anyone who wishes can attend at least one, and some may be able to attend more than one.

These are:
Tuesday 23rd November, 16.30-18.00
Saturday 27th November, 16.30-18.00
Monday 29th November, 19.00-20.30
We will ask three questions:
What needs do you see among Quakers to support, challenge and sustain us in our witness, in the context of the climate and ecological crises?

What gifts do you have to offer in helping to provide that support?

Would you like to be part of a face-to-face Quaker sustainability gathering in 2022? If so, could you help to make it happen?
