Silent Vigil News
It was announced last week that the Peace & Justice Committee decided to suspend the Silent Vigil in Support of Black Lives Matter for the winter  beginning Friday, December 2nd. They are thankful for everyone who stood for justice on the four corners of Washington and State Streets.  Someone has been out there, signs in hand, every other week for the past 30 months.

Are you interested in joining their advocacy efforts? You do not have to be a member of Peace & Justice to attend a committee meeting. The next P&J meeting is Sunday, December 11th at 8:30 am on Zoom.  Contact Betsy Crofts for the Zoom link if you are interested in participating. (
Thank you to everyone on Peace & Justice for setting the example of showing up and standing up for truth and justice for Black lives everywhere.

The Query for Twelfth Month
Witnessing in the World: "Witness & Civic Responsibility
What is our meeting doing:
To become aware of systemic legal, economic and political injustices
in our local community?

To build relationships with other faith communities around
common concerns?

To reduce polarization within the larger community?
To work together with others to address injustice? 
How does our meeting assist in restoring public recognition that government fulfills legitimate functions?
Am I mindful of how my lifestyle, work-life and investments affect others?
Am I open to seeking clearness on matters of conscience? Am I open to assisting others in doing so?
Do I fulfill my civic responsibilities when they do not conflict with divine leadings.
