Let It Burn:

A Call for Attention to the Fires of Our Faith

Some say these are the end times for the Religious Society of Friends; others see a wealth of germinal openings in the challenges among and around us. Meanwhile, the world’s urgent needs require a steadfast spiritual foundation for our response. What kindling and cordwood are available for us today as we tend the fires of our faith?

Ann Jerome is a member of Orlando Monthly Meeting. She worshiped with DeLand Worship Group until relocating in September 2023 to Pendle Hill in Wallingford, Pennsylvania to serve as a Friend in Residence there. She has served Southeastern Yearly Meeting as a youth program leader, organizer of the workshops program for the annual gathering, Clerk of Executive Committee and Interim Business Meeting, and currently as a member of the Worship and Ministry Committee.
