Prayer/Reflection at The Church of the Bretheren for the Interfaith 9/11 Commemoration Service on 9/11/11 in Easton MD, presented by John Schreiner:
How we all choose to commemorate this 10th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center is another matter. It offers us an opportunity not only to honor those brave souls acting amidst chaos and danger, but to build upon that heroism. In so doing we can examine choices we have as citizens and as a nation to guide our actions in the world. (slowly) We can work toward Peace, and away from fear and retribution.
Remarks made by Clerk John Schreiner on 5/1/11:
"Friends have felt called to raise funds in your honor and, in the process, have arranged to have a large, finely-crafted, custom cherry table with your name on it to be placed in the new, expanded Maryland Room of the new Talbot County library. This is done in recognition of your contribution to passing along local Quaker history to this generation and those to come."

1927-2011, Irene was very proud of her 35 year Quaker membership at Third Haven Friends Meeting.
Carrying the Light of Quakerism into the Future: Remarks on the Occasion of the 325th Anniversary of Third Haven Meeting, Arthur M. Larrabee October 4, 2009
There is a Light of Quakerism which is special and unique and which offers a religious and spiritual path for many seekers. Let's be mindful of what will carry this unique spiritual path into the future, giving attention to:
• Articulating our core beliefs
• Finding a way to articulate a relationship between our Christianity and our Universalism
• Letting go of our self-inflicted negativity
• Getting in touch with our passion
• And proactively making ourselves known in the world.
