New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

New England Friend: April 2016


With joy, I'm writing to share this online edition of the New England Friend.

These articles connect us with ways New England Friends are living ministry and connecting hearts - in Ramallah, in Rwanda, in local meetings across New England, and in the spaces between.

In faith and service,

Issue contents

  • Brian Drayton (Souhegan) encourages us to visit one another's meetings to get to know each other more deeply.

  • Jonathan Vogel-Borne and Minga Claggett-Borne, halfway through ten months of travel in ministry, share their experiences among Friends in Rwanda.

  • Mimi Marstaller (Durham) has spent the last two years teaching English to Palestinians at the Ramallah Friends School. Mimi's ministry to Palestinian teens as they struggle to learn while under Occupation is remarkable.

  • Friends from meetings across New England share stories of new life and growth.
