Saratoga Monthly Meeting invited Jens Braun, member and co-founder of QIVC, and Nadine Hoover to share a potluck and help them write statements of conscience on December 9th after meeting for worship. Nine participants (six from Saratoga meeting and three from a local peace group) welcomed the opportunity to focus on where their consciences are leading at this critical time in the life of our nation. One participant pointed out that Frederick Douglass had spoken in the Saratoga meetinghouse and that today they continue that same tradition of Spirit-led activism. Friends at Saratoga Monthly Meeting were grateful to Jens and Nadine for their willingness to travel from afar to help them in their journeys.
