What makes Cape Cod Friends come alive? Can we articulate and share what makes us come alive, our longings, our personal leadings, and support each other in following them?

In 2013, the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) worked with the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) to articulate a vision they called “shared security” in which all the world’s people have the ability to raise their families without fear or want. Achieving this vision will require action to address human needs of all sorts, on all scales: economy, ecology, social justice, education, local, national, international. There is truly a piece of the puzzle for each of us, and for all of us.

Through worship, worship sharing, and queries, we will share what brought us to Seeker’s Day; come to appreciate all of our contributions and longings; expand our horizons by envisioning how our own "coming alive" might contribute to shared security locally, nationally and internationally; and get to know each other more deeply. 

In preparation for the Seekers’ Day, if you wish, you may read the “Shared Security” report, available on line at  http://sharedsecurity.wordpress.com/) and meditate on what makes you come alive.

The discussions will be led by the Peace and Social Order Committee of the West Falmouth Friends Meeting and Martha Yager of the AFSC Southeast New England Office.

Soup and beverages will be provided. Please bring sandwiches, salads, or cookies to share.
