After several discussions, it is felt prudent that we suspend our worship group sessions for awhile.
We will re-look at this suspension every 2 weeks or so as the situation is changing rapidly. As of now, we are suspending for the rest of March… meaning we will not gather March 15, 22, or 29, and we will re-visit this again around the 29th to determine how we should proceed.
1. The PNW Quarterly Gathering scheduled for the 4th Sunday in April has been cancelled as of today.
2. The PNW Men’s Gathering scheduled for the 3rd weekend in April has been postponed, and will likely be cancelled after a discussion today.
3. I still have no information on the Women’s Theology Conference.
The Lower Columbia Worship Group is an un-programmed meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. Our small, but growing worship group began in the 2008. We meet for silent worship Sundays at 3:00 pm at the Ilwaco Community Center in Ilwaco, Washington.
We invite all. We are a member of The Community of Welcoming Congregations. If Quaker meeting is new to you, know that you are welcome to gather with us and share the Spirit that is accessible to all.
We typically come from Christian backgrounds, but we also come to Quakerism from agnostic or non-theist perspectives. Others enrich our worship with their knowledge of and commitment to other traditions, such as Jewish and Buddhist beliefs. Our mutual commitment is honoring our Quaker history of spiritual seeking and “right action”–behaving in a way that is consistent with our shared values of simplicity, equality, peace, integrity, community and stewardship.
In all things, both with one another and with the world, we seek to be guided by a spirit of compassion and love.
