Friendly Fire May 1, 2018

Quaker image with red & black maskThe Friendly Fire Collective is a network of anti-fascist, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist Christians. Drawing from Marxist and anarchist political traditions,and grounded in the biblical vision of God’s kin-dom, we believe we are called to create a new world in the ashes of the old. Most of the members have either been involved or are currently involved in the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), hence the name “Friendly Fire.” We value Quakerism’s prophetic tradition and mysticism and see this informing how we organize.
 
In the Spirit of International Workers' Day, the collective will be hosting a retreat this May 1-3 in the Philadelphia area. We are gathering over 30 Friends, Christians, and mystics of all faith traditions, in order to strengthen and connect the forming Christian/Religious Left. We will be participating in Philadelphia's May Day demonstrations as well as spending time in the Pine Barrens, worshipping and teaching one another kin-dom praxis.
 
We have more participants than anticipated, and so our funding is a bit low. So far the planning committee has been paying for everything out of pocket, including the scholarships given out. Any and every contribution helps - please consider donating to our GoFundMe!  To learn more about Friendly Fire, visit our website.
