Eyes — and Hearts — Wide Open

When nine Friends in Norman, Oklahoma, took on the challenge of sponsoring an Eyes Wide Open exhibit at Oklahoma University, it opened their eyes – to the possibility of turning their worship group into a full-fledged meeting.

“The display did not bond us,” says Jim Warram, one of the Friends.  “It revealed that we were already bonded.”

John and Gail Fletcher, members of the group, had seen the exhibit several years earlier at the Gathering in Blacksburg, Virginia.

The Organize the Hope College Fellowship program and orientation training was held in Chicago on September 11-13th.  We had an amazing group of fellows at the training, a very diverse group that hailed from New Hampshire, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.  The students have hit the ground running and are already producing events on campus, using AFSC materials and resources and being mentored by AFSC staff.
