(Our working group has asked to be included in this umbrella committee.)
From the Faith in Action Committee:
We are writing on behalf of the newly formed Faith in Action Committee of New England Yearly Meeting. This committee was formed “to support the public witness of Quakers in New England, to listen for where Friends from across New England are active, to amplify what is happening locally, to connect Friends with each other, to help form networks among Friends who carry related concerns, to highlight and share the news of Witness among Friends, and to listen for where Spirit is moving us” (committee charge approved at YM Sessions 2018).
The Faith in Action Committee would appreciate your help. As we seek to become more aware of faithful witness, news, and events among Friends, receiving meeting newsletters is one way we can learn news and help us stay connected. If your meeting/committee/working group has an electronic newsletter, and/or sends our notices regarding public witness of the meeting/group or its individual members, we would ask you to add the Faith in Action email to your distribution list. Our e-mail address is
You may also find it linked on our committee’s webpage, which we hope to use as a connecting page while a new website is developed.
If anyone from your meeting/group would like to contact the clerk and members of the committee, you may also use this email address.
We look forward to further contact as the work of this committee continues. in faith and service,
Diane Dicranian, clerk (Winthrop Center, ME, Friends Church)
