GPQM at Annual Worship and Picnic, August 9, in Battle Creek

On August 9, 2020, the 75th anniversary of the U.S. nuclear bombing of Nagasaki, Green Pastures Quarterly met at Quaker Park in Battle Creek for its annual worship with attention to peace in remembrance of that devastating event. Two giant trees sheltered 22 Friends under their arbor. Worship gathered and Spirit spoke gratitude for the breeze and shade and wonder at what these leafy beings have witnessed in this historic place. At rise of Meeting, brown bags replaced potluck, and six-foot distancing was no barrier to the joy of fellowship.
