What's New

Kinship with All Life

Earth Day: April 22, 2018

Job 12: 7-10: “But ask the animals, and they will teach you; the birds of the air, and they will tell you; ask the plants of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of every human being.”



State of the Society Report to WYM, 2017

West Newton Friends is a small, semi-programmed, non-pastoral meeting that is very active in our community and the wider world. As such, the state of our local Society of Friends congregation is good. In 2017, we began working together to discern God’s future for our meeting. We have continued that process in 2018.

How are you nurturing your community and your world?


We’re going to regularly share the work of one of West Newton Friends making a difference in our community. We’re all involved in different ways and sometimes we don’t realize the ministries we're doing in locally and around the world.

This article features the volunteer work of Dan Burger at Sheltering Wings. He wrote the following poem/reflection and information about the work of Sheltering Wings.

Quaker Quote

“Our life is love, and peace, and tenderness; and bearing one with another, and forgiving one another, and not laying accusations one against another; but praying one for another, and helping one another up with a tender hand.” – Isaac Penington

The quotations used in this space are from Quakers. The quotes will be changed often to give a feeling for the thinking of some of those who passed this way before us and Friends today.

We are members of:
