"Quakers and Cajun: Equality for All"

When many people hear the word Quaker, all they think of is oatmeal. Quakers, though, are part of a vital faith tradition that is older than the United States but is as modern as today. Including standing for equality of all people!

In light of the controversy over Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act, you might want to come and find out more about these quirky Quakers and their commitment to deep, personal spirituality, contemplation, equality, social justice, and peace. Equality will be the main focus this month.

"Quakers and Cajun" will meet at Zydeco's Cajun in Mooresville on April 22nd from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. This is the second installment of "Quakers and Cajun" -- in March more than 30 people joined the conversation.

Noted Quaker author, photographer, and retreat leader Brent Bill, a member of Spirituality & Practice’s Living Spiritual Teachers Project, will present a fast-paced, whimsical, and informational presentation about Quakers and their on-going work for equality. It's a topic many Hoosiers are talking about due to the passage of SB 101 the "Religious Freedom Restoration" act.

Zydeco's Cajun is located at 11 E. Main St in Mooresville. We'll start at 6;30 with a welcome, choose our dining delights, enjoy food and conversation and start the program around 7:15.

There will be plenty of time to ask questions about Quakers and enjoy Zydeco's great food and libations. You'll find that the food won't be the only thing that's spicy that night!
