We will meet on Saturday, March 23, at Reading Meeting at 9 a.m.. We will continue to hold the query from fall sessions: How do we, as Friends, center ourselves toward trust and love? In carrying this messages, Friends are invited to participate in Seeking Faithfulness, a multi-generational action outside Berks Detention Center in the morning, and Meeting for Business at the Miller Center for the Arts in the afternoon. Youth Programs will be welcome to join in the action, and they will have their own programming at Reading Meeting.
The action at Berks will take the form of extended, multi-generational, semi-programmed worship, beginning at 10 a.m. Contributions from Young Adult Friends and our partners at the Shut Down Berks Interfaith Witness, as well as music, will ground and structure our time together. Much of the action will be devoted to deep, centered silence, out of which all are invited to bring messages of prayer, protest, and other energetic movements of the Spirit that rise among us.
Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business
will be held at the Miller Center for the Arts on the Reading Area Community College (4 North 2nd Street, Reading, PA 19601) from 1:00pm – 4:00pm.
The Youth Programs: Action and Reflection
Following participation in the action at Berks County Residential Center (with an alternative peaceful, multigenerational action and child care available at Reading Meeting that morning), lunch and afternoon programs will be held at Reading Monthly Meeting in the afternoon. (108 North 6th Street, Reading, PA 19601)
