Welcome to Bethesda Friends Meeting
We strive for:
SIMPLICITY - Learning to discern the essential from the non-essential.
PEACE - Living in a spirit that takes away the occasion for all war.
INTEGRITY - Being who we truly are and truly meaning what we say.
COMMUNITY - Knowing that we need one another in order to be whole.
EQUALITY - Knowing that everyone, everywhere is equally precious to God. This includes people of all ages, abilities, sexual orientation, races, ethnicities, levels of resources, and theological perspectives.
BFM's Social Concern for February is
Torture Abolition & Survivors Support Coalition (TASSC)
The Social Concern for February is the Torture Abolition & Survivors Support Coalition (TASSC). TASSC was founded by and for torture survivors to end the practice of torture wherever it occurs (in some 141 countries). TASSC takes an integrated and survivor-centered approach to its work. The focus is on resilience and each survivor’s own strengths as they move toward a brighter future and TASSC addresses all aspects of a survivor’s well-being: community and social connection, and legal, psychological, and medical support. TASSC also serves as a drop-in center where survivors can come to enjoy coffee, eat lunch, speaking with staff, attend events and workshops, and use computers or borrow books from the library.
