Forwarded from the Clerk of NEYM:
Orlando Quakers invite Friends across the country to have silent worship at a common time, 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14th 2016, whether in your homes or in your meetinghouses.
Here are links for additional information about two local LGBTQ+ non-profit community organizations in Orlando that do amazing work: Zebra Foundation (http://zebrayouth.org) and The Center (http://www.thecenterorlando.org/). They are well run (I know folks who work at both places) and are always in need of financial support, if you have the means to offer such material assistance. Both of these are within 1 to 2 miles of our Orlando meetinghouse, and very much a part of our immediate community.
We will need to continue working together to discern way forward as monthly meetings, yearly meetings, and an FLGBTQC community in the coming days, weeks, and months. In the meantime, know that we are so very grateful for the love and light everyone has offered to Orlando Quakers,
