Whatever your political views, and whatever the outcome of the election, all of us, our nation and the world will need prayerful grounding. Anyone is welcome to come to the Meetinghouse for any length of time, from 8am to 10pm Tuesday and Wednesday, to pray, worship, contemplate. On Wednesday, we will hold our weekly unprogrammed Quaker worship from 5:30 to 6:30pm followed by about 20-30 minutes of worshipful sharing. All are welcome.

“Energy giant Kinder Morgan Inc. hascropped-940_conf_ctr_spring476k suspended additional work and spending on its Northeast Energy Direct project, a controversial natural gas pipeline proposed through Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
Kinder Morgan said on Wednesday that the company didn’t receive the extra commitments from big customers that it needed to proceed with the $3.3 billion project. As a result, Kinder Morgan said in a statement, ‘there are currently neither sufficient volumes, nor a reasonable expectation of securing them, to proceed with the project as it is currently configured.'”
SO MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO WORKED TO OPPOSE THE PIPELINE.

Hello Woolman Hill friends!

The Baltimore orioles are back in the maple trees, the pear trees have just begun blooming, and the daffodils are still holding forth. Spring is in full bloom!image003

As many of you may already have heard, Woolman Hill lost our dear friend and long-time Hill resident, Juanita Nelson, in March. At the end of this month there are opportunities to celebrate her powerful and inspiring life. More information about those opportunities and about Juanita can be found here: http://woolmanhill.org/2015/05/02/celebrating-juanita-nelson/.

It seems fitting, in conjunction with Juanita, to mention opportunities for joining efforts on three upcoming Woolman Hill volunteer workdays. We’d love your company and extra elbow grease on May 6, May 20 and/or June 20. There’s more information here:

The glory of spring will soon be turning into the abundance of summer… And the Hill has its own special beauty in each season… Come experience it for yourself… As always we welcome you for individual retreats, programs, group gatherings, midweek worship, or just a leisurely walk on the Ridge Trail…

Hope to see you here on the Hill soon!
Margaret
