The Milwaukee Meeting’s “Statement of Society” for 2020
Members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) believe that there is that of God in every person. Through the centuries we have experienced God (the Light, Spirit, Love) leading us to act corporately and individually for peace and justice and against oppression, racism, injustice and violence. We continue to seek divine guidance.
We of Milwaukee Friends Meeting grieve for the loss of precious lives, and we stand with the Black Lives Matter movement. To people of color everywhere, we acknowledge your pain, frustration and exhaustion. We acknowledge your spirit, courage, and leadership.
We commit ourselves anew to this work by examining white privilege in our own lives and joining with others to end systemic racism in our community and across the nation.
Quaker Song is a daily opportunity to connect with others through music. We send out a list of songs each week. On most days, we all sing together at 11 a.m., using our imaginations to think of all the others singing along. On Sunday, because Meeting for Worship starts at 10:15 AM, we sing at 10:00 AM. You can choose your own key, sing at your own tempo, and enjoy yourself even if you “can’t carry a tune.” Sign up to join this tuneful experience.
