And, if you are motivated to help Haiti, I encourage you to contribute to Episcopal Relief and Development www.er-d.org They work through the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti (the largest diocese in The Episcopal Church) to help with education, medical care and development. With churches, schools and development agents throughout the country, they were able to provide aid immediately after the recent earthquake (and earlier hurricanes).
Another option is to buy Haitian coffee, either for your own use or as a fundraiser. Singing Rooster www.singingrooster.org sells excellent coffee -- grown by small farmers from the same plant and in the same conditions as the famous Jamaican blue coffee. Additional The money you pay for the coffee goes directly to these small farmers and also to support mission projects in rural Haiti.

As many of you already know, the Right Reverend Gene Robinson, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire, will speak at New Garden Friends Meeting in Greensboro tomorrow, Thursday January 28, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. His visit is part of Guilford College's Religious Emphasis Week, as was the visit of Vanessa Julye a few days ago.
The visit was initiated and organized by Guilford students. Bishop Robinson will speak on "Is tolerance possible? Is tolerance enough?", responding to the hate incident that occurred at the college earlier this academic year.
Bishop Robinson was elected and consecrated as the first openly gay and partnered Episcopal and Anglican bishop in 2003. He had been a priest in the Diocese of New Hampshire for many years. Much of his ministry has focused on helping congregations and clergy, especially in times of conflict, utilizing his skills in congregational dynamics, conflict resolution, and mediation.

This evening, Monday, January 25, at 7:30 p.m., a distinguished and dynamic speaker will address the racial history and present racial practices of Quakers. Vanessa Julye is co-author with Donna McDaniel of the book Fit for Freedom, Not for Friendship: Quakers, African-Americans and the Myth of Racial Justice.
The lecture is at New Garden Friends Meeting, New Garden Road at Friendly Avenue, Greensboro. Conversation will follow.
Vanessa Julye is Coordinator for the Ministry on Racism for the Friends General Conference. A member of Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting and a graduate of Westtown School and Temple University, she travels in the ministry with a special concern for helping the Religious Society of Friends become a whole blessed community.
Fit for Freedom, Not for Friendship reveals that racial segregation has been as pervasive among Friends as among others of European descent.
