Thankful for You

November 22, 2016


Your dedicated, persistent, and faithful commitment to the world we seek sustains and uplifts FCNL today and every day.

We're thankful for the diversity and strength of the FCNL community.

I saw also that there was an ocean of darkness and death; but an infinite ocean of light and love, which flowed over the ocean of darkness. In that also I saw the infinite love of God, and I had great openings. ~ Journal of George Fox (1647)

Now, more than ever, we need the grounding of our faith, the courage of our convictions and the mutual support of one another. Together, we will have “openings” to advance peace, justice and a healthy planet through our government’s actions.

We are thankful to work with all of you. Together, in the weeks and months ahead, we will persistently lobby Congress as powerful and prophetic truth tellers.

Among our priorities:

Our work is cut out for us on these issues and more. You make our work possible. Thank you.

Update Looking Forward 

The stark political divide in the American electorate—so evident in this presidential campaign—makes our lobbying here in Washington tougher than ever. But you can count on FCNL to be right here on Capitol Hill, working relentlessly for peace and justice.

Address to Annual Meeting 2016

For many of us, this hasn’t been just a hard few days, it’s been a hard 18 months. And the election results left us in disbelief. Shaken. But our faith is not one of despair. It is of hope.
