October 2, 2016: Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC) invites Quakers from around the world to celebrate World Quaker Day on October 2. The theme, Inspired by Faith—Witnessing Together in the World, focuses on FWCC’s mission of “Connecting Friends, Crossing Cultures, and Changing Lives.” The FWCC invitation reads:

“Whatever you do as a worshiping community, we hope you will share this with others through FWCC. It can be very simple—a description, a poem, a short video form a mobile phone, a few photos—we will post them on our web site so that you can see what other churches and meetings were doing on the same day. As the sun rises in each area of the world, we want to remember that Quakers are worshiping through every time zone, celebrating our deep connections across cultures and Quaker traditions. We are united in love and can accompany each other on this special day that draws us together. As we worship, let us hold each other in prayer and thanksgiving, and let our hymns of praise resound across the world.”
