New Quaker Worship Group in Portland, OR
Having been connected with several Quaker meetings in the Portland area, we feel the need for a new group that prioritizes inclusion, welcome, and anti-racism work as core to its origins as well as its function over time. We believe that many Quaker meetings in the area are working to change the status quo in their own ways. This is good, but insufficient. The hope for Clear Hearts Quaker Circle is to start with new assumptions, a better (even if not perfect) status quo, and a focus on welcome and inclusion at the very foundation of its existence.
We are gathering resources and plans – more to come soon!
