Spirituality is Not Just for Old Women: Our Annual Service Retreat


Friday, September 29, 2017 - 6:00pm to Sunday, October 1, 2017 - 12:30pm


Friends Meetinghouse
841 Edmands Rd
Framingham , MA


What does it mean to be spiritual?  How can nurturing it be such a positive thing if there is so much war and strife in the world done in the name of religion?  Friends use many words for that of God but are encouraged to always listen to the truth that is underneath all those words.  Can you question the existence of God, or consider yourself an atheist and still go to Meeting for Worship? Come and explore the answers to these and so many other questions at our first retreat of the year!  On Saturday afternoon, we will go off on Service Projects in the Framingham Area and put our hearts into action.  Registration begins August 14.
