Friends World Committee for Consultation...
. . . invited
every Quaker meeting and church from around the
world to celebrate World Quaker
Day (WQD) on October 2, 2016. The theme, Inspired
by Faith - Witnessing Together in the World, focused on
FWCC's mission of Connecting Friends, Crossing
Cultures and Changing Lives. See how Friends around
the world celebrated the day.
Whatever you did 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 from a mobile phone, a few photos — we will post them on this web site so that you can see what other churches and meetings were doing on the same day. There are three ways to let us know about your activities: Email items to us, post them to the FWCC World Office Facebook page, or Twitter, hashtag #wqd for posting to the website.
As the sun rose in each area of the
world, we remembered that Quakers were
worshiping through every time zone, celebrating our
deep connections across cultures and Quaker
traditions. We were united in love and
each other on this special day that draws us
together. As we worshiped, we held each other in
prayer and thanksgiving, and let our hymns of praise
resound across the world.
