"In the Americas, the Quaker community extends from the Arctic to the Andes, spanning a rich diversity of regional cultures, beliefs and styles of worship.

Answering God's call to universal love, Friends World Committee for Consultation brings Friends of varying traditions and cultural experiences together in worship, communications and consultation, to express our common heritage and our Quaker message to the world."

The FWCC Section of the Americas is going to meet at Stony Point Center, NY, on March 23-26, 2017.

There are opportunities for local Friends to offer companionship and hospitality to visiting Latin American Friends. There are Friends coming from a distance who would be happy to visit Friends in the local area before or after the meeting. For example, Latin American Friends will arrive early for a meeting that starts on Monday, March 20th. Some of them could easily arrive for the weekend before, to attend meeting for worship and to speak at local meetings. The 15 or so Latin American Friends will also have a free afternoon on Wednesday, March 22.

If local Friends were willing to arrange an excursion to see the Hudson River and any local historical sites, that would be much appreciated. Contact Robin Mohr at robinm@fwccamericas.org or 215-241-7157.
