THE RELIGIOUS SOCIETY OF FRIENDS, FINLAND YEARLY MEETING
We hope to meet again when possible
Dear Friends. The city of Helsinki has witnessed new kind of problems faced by those who are addicted to alcohol and/or drugs. Coronavirus has forced the social services to shut down the facilities that provide food and the possibility to wash oneself. The addicted and the homeless are hungry, which increases their substance abuse and overall poor health.
At the darkest moment, Winter Solstice, of this year that has been strange and challenging to many of us, let’s celebrate the turn towards lighter times by gathering in silence and dance in a sacred virtual space that we create together !
The Religious Society of Friends in Finland organizes a Silent Meeting for Worship every month’s first Sunday at 1-2 pm (Finnish time) online via Zoom. It’s also possible to participate via telephone.
The weekly meetings for worship in Helsinki are stopped for now. We hope to see you soon!
