We come for a glimpse of God’s kingdom of kindness, a world where love rules over all, a world where enemies embrace, a world where the distinctions between friend and foe evaporate in the light of your love. Knowing that God has the power to transform us, we give our lives over to God- body, soul, mind, spirit.

Trustees will meet next Sun, Nov 3, at 9:45 AM.

Broken Vessels Quaker Ministries is happy to announce the return of The Deeper Roots program. Deborah Shaw, Deborah Fisch, and Lloyd Lee Wilson will lead a group of committed Friends in a “deep dive” into the history of our Quaker faith, a Quaker perspective on the Bible and how to benefit from it, sampling spiritual practices and disciplines valuable to Friends, and building authentic spiritual community. Four long weekend residencies over 18 months, beginning 9/10-13, 2020, at Ben Lomond Quaker Center in CA. Suitable for seasoned Friends as well as those relatively new to Quakerism.
