QEW Affiliation Minute

Discernment – QEW Affiliation

IMYM Minute 20180615(a): Friends recommend a 3-year exploration of affiliation with Quaker Earthcare Witness (QEW), providing financial support for two observers to help answer our questions and concerns. We charge these observers (Dick Grossman and John Gallagher were mentioned) to report back annually to the yearly meeting on their experiences. Some have expressed particular concern over QEW’s insistence on non-nuclear solutions to climate and energy problems, and the alignment of their decision-making process with Quaker process.
