We sometimes post about upcoming events of potential interest to our members. One such upcoming event is The Black Quaker Lives Matter Film Festival.
From the website:
We are thrilled to announce the Black Quaker Lives Matter Film Festival, a first-of-its-kind film festival that endeavors to educate all about the importance of Quakers of Color who for too long have remained within the margins of the Society of Friends and the wider world. From 12 February 2022, during Black History Month, until Paul Robeson’s birthday on 9 April 2022 we will screen a film centered on a Quaker of Color with an introduction from a guest expert and a follow up discussion facilitated by BQP Director Dr. Harold D. (Hal) Weaver. Screenings will take place every other Saturday on Zoom at 1pm ET.

Klamath Falls Friends Church, an open and affirming semi-programmed Meeting of the Society of Friends (Quakers), in beautiful southern Oregon, is currently seeking a part- to full-time interim pastor to guide us along our journey. KFFC is a Christ-centered and seeker-friendly Meeting. We are a small but diverse group, with a wide array of spiritual paths. Our desired pastor will be able to hold that diversity, plan and present messages/meditations to guide our Meetings for Worship, be available for pastoral care, and provide the structure and guidance necessary to help us discern our long-term way forward.
