Reflections on Waffles, Rice and Remaking Home with Rev. Elizabeth Nguyen, February 3 from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m.
We are excited to announce that the 1st Wed. Series
at Beacon Hill Friends House is back!!!
For the next several months we will be exploring refugee experiences from a number of perspectives. Recognizing that our world is increasingly a place of dislocation and turmoil, and that this condition and reality has existed in war torn regions for a very long time Beacon Hill Friends House, a center for Quaker educational activities and a residential intentional community inspired by Quaker principles, offers “Refugee Stories.”
Each month an invited quest shares their own story of refugee experience and, in conversation with the audience, bridges distance and time to bring the realities of their own past and lived present more clearly to others.Our first event will be February 3 from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. “Reflections on Waffles, Rice and Remaking Home” with Rev.
