In these times it is important to make our voice for peace heard. We must not allow our leaders to continue to imply that Might is Right or to use religion as an excuse for imperialistic exploitation and violence. Jesus taught peace, there can be no mistake.
Here, or on the pumpkins to purchase prints, postcards, stickers, clothing and other household items bearing

100% of all profits from the sale of these items will go

London Friends Meeting. The image featured on the
products here is the creation of Tony Baldwin.
This photographic work features pumpkins photographed in
Connecticut in Autumn while Tony and his daughter were lost. Tony
has added his favorite Bible verse: "Peacemakers who sow in
peace will reap a harvest of righteousness." (James 3:18)
This art has been donated in memoriam of W. Hobart and Jean Mitchell,
founder of New London
Friends Meeting. Hobart Mitchell was a Healer, an English professor
and the author of "We Would Not Kill" (1983, Friends
United Press, ISBN 0-913408-63-8) an historical account of life
in the CPS Camps for Conscientious Objectors during World War II. He and his wife were founding members of New London Friends Meeting.
New London Friends
Meeting, a very small Quaker meeting in CT, is in need of
over sixty thousand dollars worth of repairs. The Meeting House has a leaky roof, peeling paint, and no plumbing or running water. Further, the meetinghouse presently does not meet important building codes, denying us access to other sources of income, such as rents to 12 Step meetings, etc.
New London Friends work for peace as do Quakers everywhere. To learn more about us, or Quakers in general, visit our meeting site, New London Friends
Meeting, and surf the links there.
