Jan. 25 – 7- 9:30pm, Wellesley Friends will be hosting Quaker author Margery Abbott for a reading from and discussion about her new book “To Be Broken and Tender: A Quaker Theology for Today”, 7pm for dessert, 7:30pm – program. We are fortunate to have this opportunity to meet Marge Abbott while she is visiting the Boston area. She is a member of Multnomah MM, an unprogrammed meeting in Portland, OR and has been released by her meeting for writing and speaking about Friends. A brief description of Marge’s book (from the website): “In To Be Broken and Tender, Friend and Quaker historian Margery Abbott weaves together a brave and beautiful personal narrative with Quaker history and theological reflection in response to questions and struggles about belief, language, social issues and other deeply-felt concerns that unsettle and divide our Meetings and the wider Religious Society of Friends. A study guide assists readers in their own discernment around challenging issues such as care for the environment, our personal relationships to God and Christianity, and what role Friends have in making the world right.” Guests and friends are welcome to join us.
