Occupy Your Spirit: Quakers and Occupy Philadelphia


With Occupy movements sweeping the country and rocking the city of Philadelphia to its core, I set out to investigate how Quakers are getting involved with this national call for social change.  How are we supporting this movement?  What unique gifts do we have to share?  What are we learning from the Occupy Movement?  And, perhaps most importantly, what will this mean for the future of Quaker social action?

This is just fantastic, thank you for being faithful to your gift of witness and sharing.

I have sent out the link to both quakerquaker and your podcast widely to Friends in the U.S.

Hoping that truths travel well.

Thanks for your kind words, Sharon.  It was nice to see you at the Interfaith Committee meeting this afternoon.  Perhaps we will meet again out at Pendle Hill....
