This page will link to various projects of Friends Meetings and Churches in the Seattle area.
Generally, Friends uphold these values:
Unity: We will look for common ground, hear both sides, ask each side to repeat the other side’s position, check for accuracy, clarify, and then seek agreement. Following the Courageous Conversations model, we will:
Integrity: We will state our values clearly and uphold them at all times throughout our lives. We will honor all agreements we have made as obligations of the heart.
Community: We will collaborate with anyone who shares our purposes. We will build trusting and collaborative relationships in all of our actions.
Equity: We uphold social justice in results as well as in opportunities, and recognize that individual needs may vary.
Stewardship/Sustainability: Protecting the earth will be our first priority.
