World Quaker Day
Friends World Committee for Consultation is calling Quakers from every branch and all over the globe to celebrate World Quaker Day on Sunday, October 4th, 2015. World Quaker Day is a time for Quaker Churches and Meetings to remember our shared history and traditions and unite in prayer and thanksgiving for the wider Society of Friends.
As World Quaker Day quickly approaches, we encourage Churches and Meetings to plan their World Quaker Day activities with the 2016 FWCC World Plenary Meeting’s theme in mind: Living the transformation: Creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God (Romans 8:19). For creative ideas on incorporating this theme into your celebration, as well as for additional resources on World Quaker Day, you can check out worldquakerday.org.
We would also like to encourage Friends to share what their community did to celebrate World Quaker Day, whether it be a brief description, a poem written for the occasion, any photos or videos taken that day, or anything that can be shared to show others what your Meeting or Church did. These submissions will be posted on the website. You can submit these by emailing us, posting them to the FWCC World Office Facebook page, or tweeting at us. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #wqd on all social media!
