FCNL at Yearly Meetings
Summer 2018 Across the Country
How is Spirit moving through your yearly meeting? Through FCNL’s travel to yearly meetings, we join in meeting for business, hear leadings and concerns, and share the broader work of the Religious Society of Friends as it manifests through the work of FCNL.
Yearly Meeting travel is a crucial time for FCNL staff to stay grounded in the Religious Society of Friends while inviting Friends to participate in Quaker advocacy.
While traveling at yearly meetings...
We engage, not only through workshops but through lunch tables, interest groups, etc.
We listen! What are the big issues the YM is dealing with? What policy issues are Friends concerned about and how can FCNL help?
We invite Friends to join FCNL’s advocacy efforts, governance, and ongoing fiscal support.
We follow up with people and meetings and churches. We want to build Quaker Advocacy!
We invite you, as constituents, to start a conversation with the FCNL liaison at your yearly meeting, ask questions of your yearly meeting’s FCNL representatives, and deepen your engagement with Quaker advocacy through FCNL. At FCNL-led workshops, we offer up tools and skills for Spirit-led action to help make change possible.
