World Quaker Day, supported by Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC), is happening this Sunday, October 6 across the globe. You can find out more at the worldquakerday.org website. Here’s a message from FWCC regarding the day:

This year’s theme is Sustainability: Planting Seeds of Renewal for the World We Love

FWCC invites you to join Quakers around the world for the 6th annual World Quaker Day.

Across our churches, meetings, countries and sections, we feel the power of God connecting us in to a faithful family. We celebrate all expressions of Quaker worship!

Visit the resources page for ideas on how to get involved.

Please send us your photos and reports from the day by emailing submit@worldquakerday.org. If you have a video to share, please send it to submit@worldquakerday.org via WeTransfer
