“Art, Social Action, and Spirituality” topic for West Brattleboro Quakers



The West Brattleboro Quaker Worship Group will host a discussion on Sunday, February 5 with documentary photographer Michael Forster Rothbart, whose exhibit “After Chernobyl” has just opened at Vermont Center for Photography, will share his spiritual path: finding and sharing hope and beauty in many of the world’s difficult places.

As he wrote in a recent Friends Journal article, “I am equally a Quaker and a photojournalist, and these two tracks of my life cross-pollinate constantly. Both live as witnesses, and there are many parallels between photography and Quaker worship.” Rothbart will illuminate these connections from his experience and lead a group discussion.

The Worship Group meets for spirit-led worship every Sunday at 10:00 am at the Brattleboro Area Jewish Community, 151 Greenleaf Street, West Brattleboro Singing precedes worship at 9:50. The discussion with Rothbart will follow at 11:15. Children are welcome though formal childcare is not provided.

The Worship Group has been meeting weekly for one year and all are welcome.
