World Quaker Day - FWCC

2 October 2016

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 accompanied 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.
