Wellesley Friends Meeting Ministry & Counsel offers a series on notable Friends of the 20th century. We are grateful to have well-known author, Brent Bill from West Newton Friends Church of Indiana kick our sessions off. And we hope that any Friend or friend, from anywhere, will feel welcome to join us in our seeking!

May 10, 2021 - Brent Bill on Jessamyn West, Indiana born author of Friendly Persuasion and other popular novels and screenplays

May 24, 2021 - Marty Grundy on Sandra Cronk, co-founder of School of the Spirit

June 7, 2021 – Andrew Polk on Howard Thurman, writer, civil rights leader, Baptist minister

June 21, 2021 - Anne Nash on Douglas Steere, professor, writer, Quaker activist and her father

Speakers will share for approximately 30 minutes, after which participants will break into small, random groups to reflect on how the life of each Friend speaks to our conditions.  And then rejoin the larger group for some broader discussion.  Please come, both to learn and to share of your own spiritual path.
