Friends in Action!
What does it mean to live 'in virtue of that life and power which takes away the occasion of all wars?' What can I do to create a more peaceful and just world? Are we working for peace in the world, how are we nourished by peace within and among ourselves? How are we serving as instruments of reconciliation and love?
Be still and cool in thy own mind and spirit. -- George Fox
Social Concerns Box
The July/August Social Concerns box is for the Literacy Council of Montgomery County, an adult literacy organization that has been serving Montgomery County for 51 years. The Literacy Council teaches functional literacy skills to 1,500 adults through one-on- one tutoring and classroom instruction. Over 700 volunteer tutors are trained to provide basic literacy and ESL instruction to 900 adult learners, and 600 additional learners participate in intensive ESL classes. There are over 400 more adults on the waiting list for services. Contributions help expand the service so that more Montgomery County residents can improve their English literacy and, thus, their lives.
