An advance party has scouted the Meeting House conditions, and while roads to approach 5828 Worth are fairly clear, it is very icy all around the house itself. Use caution.

The marathon has been canceled, so driving to the meeting house will not be interrupted by that after all.––––––––––––––––––––––“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

Friends General Conference

We've had a few Friends ask, so I figured I would share the update. We've checked-in with Quakers in the Moore, OK area and thankfully, everyone seems to have made it through the tornado unscathed.

For anyone wondering what they can do to help, it sounds like the best option for most people is t donate to the Red Cross or other non-profits that handle disaster assistance.

[05/25/13]   You are warmly invited to join us for our monthly Scripture Roundtable discussion from The Book of Psalms on Sunday at 9am, an hour before Worship. Join us for coffee and refreshments at 11. Visitors always welcome. :)

How to help tornado victims

If you want to send a $10 donation to the Disaster Relief fund via text message, you can do so by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999. As in the case with other donations via mobile, the donation will show up on your wireless bill, or be deducted from your balance if you have a prepaid phone. You need to be 18 or older, or have parental permission, to donate this way.
