Forum on Imagining an Abolitionist Future, presented by Lillian Austin, Benjamin Lay Fellow – What does it mean to be an abolitionist? Historical abolitionist movements radically opposed human enslavement— and in our own historical moment, slavery still exists, legalized through the prison industrial complex. Join Lillian Austin this Sunday for a workshop that will walk through the history of Quakers in abolitionist movements and use it to guide a conversation about contemporary prison abolitionism and what it means for Quakers to imagine an abolitionist future. JOin us after worship (about 11:30 AM) either in the Meetinghouse or on Zoom (use same link found on home page).

Radnor has selected our next book! We’ll be reading “Sing, Unburied, Sing,” by Jesmyn Ward, winner of the National Book Award for 2017. This novel, which offers an intimate portrait of a family and an epic tale of hope and struggle, journeys through Mississippi’s past and present, examining truths at the heart of the American story and the power—and limitations—of family bonds.
