Friends Meetinghouse

Honesty is one of the cornerstones of relationships and community.  Sometimes “bending the truth” is the kinder thing to do.  How does wanting to be kind, well liked, or out of trouble influence what we do or don’t say?  Do we take all our words seriously – from admitting responsibility to saying I Hate when what we really mean is This Bugs Me?  What does the Society of Friends have to tell us about speaking truth to ourselves, to each other, and to the wider world?  Honestly – we could explore this topic for an entire retreat year and not be done!  Registration begins Jan. 14.
