Beautiful Happenings

Dear friends,

It is my joy to write to you with magnolias and corylopsis abounding outside as I type. Worship this morning was deeply centered, and it was terrific to have the Friends Council on Education’s Educators new to Quakerism group with us. The ministry, to me, was at times soothing and in another moment powerfully provocative. For all of this, I am so grateful.

There are some other “beautiful happenings” on campus, too, including our QuakerBooks partnership, Phil Gulley’s upcoming lecture, and the good feeling of having full programs. Read more

Likewise, FGC will be able to better serve Friends living in and visiting the Philadelphia region with a convenient walk-in bookstore, ample parking, and the beauty and serenity of the Pendle Hill campus. By having one bookstore serving our two institutions, we hope to offer a better and stronger service for everyone. Read more
