Thursdays with Friends
Bi-Weekly Virtual Conversation
Thursdays with Friends is a new online conversation series brought to you during this period of great difficulty when we are isolated from our loved ones. It is a brief 30-minute community chat on issues that Quakers and people of faith are compelled to continue to work on, whatever the circumstances we find ourselves in.
This online community conversation will be conducted via Zoom, using enhanced security protocols, and live streamed on YouTube and Facebook. It airs every other Thursday from 4:00-4:30 p.m. EDT, starting April 9.
Thursdays with Friends is hosted by FCNL General Secretary Diane Randall. It will feature FCNL lobbyists and Friends.
Whether we are gathered in person or online, we are convinced by our faith and experience to continue building the peaceful, just, equitable, and sustainable global community we seek.
