Uplifting Events & Services – June 2018

The public is cordially invited to attend the following events.

Asheville Friends Meeting House

227 Edgewood Rd., Asheville, NC 28801

Pastors for Peace Potluck and Talk
Thursday, June 28 from 6-8 p.m.

The Cuba Caravan is coming to town as part of Pastors for Peace. They are promoting building bridges and tearing down walls. The guest speaker will be Bill Hackwell from the International Committee for Peace.

To travel to Cuba you need permission: a license from the U.S. government. President Obama made licenses very easy to get. He also took steps to reduce the U.S. economic blockade of Cuba. President Trump has adopted a very hostile stance towards Cuba, partially reversing Obama’s actions, and reducing the possibilities for individual licensed travel. Donate what you can. For more information, contact Ken at jonesk@maine.edu.
