                            Living Our Faith: The Quaker Peace Testimony
in the Twenty-First Century

Greetings Young Friends! The time has come for our annual Quaker Youth
Seminar.  From February 19 to 21, 2000, Young Friends in their junior
and senior years of high school are invited to join special guests and
William Penn House staff for a three day intensive exploration of the
Quaker Peace Testimony. William Penn House is a Quaker seminar and
hospitality center located in the heart of Washington, DC.

 "What is the Quaker Peace Testimony?"
                                                                   "
 "What are its origins?"
                                                 
 "What does it mean and why is it important?"
                                                             
 "How can I apply it to my life?"
