First Monday Lecture Series: Still Here – The Lenape Today

Rev. Pastor J.R. Norwood
Dec 7, 2015 at 7:30pm in The Barn. Free and open to the public. This event will be streamed live over the Internet – registration available here.

While most of the indigenous people of our area were driven away generations ago, there remain Lenni-Lenape people still living in historic tribal communities in the Delaware Bay region.

This lecture will discuss the continuing history of these Lenape communities, which merged with the closely related Nanticoke people of the Delmarva, shedding light on their current struggles and concerns. Read more

Lift up Pendle Hill on Giving Tuesday this year

On Tuesday, December 1, Pendle Hill will join over 30,000 organizations around the world in celebrating #GivingTuesday. Established in 2012, #GivingTuesday promotes charitable giving and community service during the holiday season. By donating to us, and sharing your Pendle Hill memories in your social media conversations, you can help us to "lift up" Pendle Hill for the world to see.

Your contribution to Pendle Hill will help us continue to provide a unique and needed space for seekers of all backgrounds. Pendle Hill provides a sanctuary, a place for provocative learning and transformative dialogue, a community, and a hub for Quakers and others who want to sink into and develop themselves as spiritual beings.

You and we are a community to be lifted up together! Read more
