As part of an organization working for policy change, we’re often focused on getting to the next milestone. We have a vision of the world we seek, and we want to know we’re moving in that direction.

FCNL’s weekly Witness Wednesday Silent Reflection  is a time to step out of doing and connect to what motivates and sustains us in this work. At times of particular importance in our country and world, we gather around a specific area of concern. On the day after Election Day, more than 200 people responded to our called time of reflection.

Two opportunities for extended worship and reflection are coming up; we hope you’ll join us.

What to Expect:

“Quaker lobbying is a form of ministry to the nation. It is also a service to individual members of Congress and their staff. By treating elected officials with integrity, FCNL seeks to open their hearts to other perspectives and encourage them to reach beyond self-interest.”

Margery Post Abbott, “A Theological Perspective on Quaker Lobbying”
  • At 5:15 p.m. Eastern, a designated convener will gather the group. The convener may share a quote or query to focus the reflection.
  • The group will settle into silence. Anyone who has a message or reflection to share can unmute their microphone to speak. We ask that you leave space between messages and only share once.
  • At 6:15 p.m. Eastern, the convener will close the gathering and invite participants into breakout rooms to introduce themselves and share closing thoughts.
