Philadelphia Yearly Meeting says
A look at the news tells us something is shifting. Within two months, we had the 400,000 strong Peoples Climate March in New York City to the uprising against injustice in Ferguson. Today many people have followed that “still small voice” through the storm toward new ground.
What is possible in this moment?

The William Penn Lecture is an annual event hosted by Young Adult Friends that brings Quakers of all ages together from across the Yearly Meeting to be inspired and to be in the deep community that supports our sustained response to inspiration.

Our 2015 lecturer is Matthew Armstead, Coordinator for EQAT (Earth Quaker Action Team), trainer at Training for Change, and core faculty member for Pendle Hill's Radical Faithfulness program.

About the lecture:
This time calls for us to find the abundant resource around us every day. Taking lessons from the social movements, the arts, and physics, Matthew will walk through contemporary sources of inspiration that illuminate the opportunity to reconnect reflection and action. This William Penn Lecture is an invitation to bring yourself more fully into this moment as a ripple in the tide.

Childcare will be provided during the lecture.

Young Adult Friends will be gathering after the lecture for fellowship & discussion at Plough & the Stars
