Quakers and Cajun -- Peace: There's ISIS and Then There's My Annoying Boss!

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 peace in a war-and-violence wracked world.

In light of the Baltimore violence, ISIS, and all the other unrest, you might want to come and find out more about us quirky Quakers and our commitment to deep, personal spirituality, contemplation, equality, social justice, and peace. Peace is be the main focus, this month.

"Cajun and Quakers" will meet at Zydeco's Cajun in Mooresville on May 27 at 6:30 pm. 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 peace.

We'll gather right at 6:30, order food and libations (yes, even adult beverages) off the great Zydeco's menu, and then about 7:00 Brent will start the presentation.

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!
