Here's FWCC's description of the weekend:

Nearly 60 Friends - adults and children - almost equally balanced between Evangelical Hispanic Friends and unprogrammed Friends, gathered at a rustic camp in New Hope, PA May 15-17 for FWCC's Northeast Regional Gathering. Participants came from New England, New York, Philadelphia, Ohio and Southern Appalachian Yearly Meetings, and from the two Hispanic Friends Churches in Philadelphia, which are members of Evangelical Friends Church - Eastern Region.

They shared each others' cuisine and music, worked to prepare food and clean up, participated in small group discussions and shared in childcare. A team of volunteers interpreted the entire program which included keynote talks on Peace Within Us, Peace With God, Peace with our Neighbor, by Mary Lord (Baltimore YM) and César Nufio (National Evangelical Friends Church of Guatemala.) The program concluded on Sunday morning with three hours of extended worship which moved seamlessly between planned music and messages and expectant waiting.
