With Our Whole Hearts

I hope the stories of faithful living and opportunities for engagement featured in this month's newsletter will bring you encouragement and nourish your spirit. My prayer is that in these turbulent days, each of us might find space—even if only for a few moments—for the refuge, rest, and renewal that will allow us to be who we are called to be.                  Noah Merrill, Secretary, NEYM

The Love That Overcomes

 November 3, 2018

          For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God –Romans 8:38-39

Every year in August, at the conclusion of the gathering of Friends from around New England ("NEYM"), an "Epistle" is prepared to send to Friends everywhere.  This epistle/letter/communication seeks to capture both the practical and spiritual nature of the gathering.  Attached is the most recent epistle from NEYM and one from Cuban Quakers.
