Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges

Scilla Wahrhaftig gave the following talk as the keynote speaker at Lake Erie Yearly Meeting in July, 2014.

 

I want to start by reading a quote from London Yearly Meeting Quaker Faith and Practice.

 

Respect that of God though it may be expressed in unfamiliar ways or be difficult to discern. Each of us has a particular experience of God and each must find the way to be true to it. When words are strange or disturbing to you, try to sense where they come from and what nourished the lives of others.

 

Hands Off Iraq!

AFSC PA is calling on the US to work towards a diplomatic solution the escalating violence in Iraq. We believe that a military intervention can only widen the conflict and make things worse. We will be supporting this rally on Saturday and hope people will join us.

Iraq's legacy a decade later

This op-ed by Peter Lems appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer on March 19, 2013.

What is the legacy of the Iraq war?

Is it the staggering number of lives lost? The trillions of dollars added to the national debt? The precedent of invading a country and overthrowing a government to bolster U.S. interests?
