Sponsored by the Bahá'ís of Easthampton, devotional gatherings are scheduled twice per month to share a devotional spirit of joy, love and fellowship. Readings are taken from scriptures of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism and others, as well as the Bahá'í Writings. Participants are encouraged to bring their prayer books, favorite poetry or other meditative passages to share. There is no established ritual and no solicitation of funs. We often go out afterwards for further fellowship at a local coffee shop or bakery.

Leslie James Pickering is a Buffalo-area activist and bookstore owner who was a co-founder of the North American Earth Liberation Front Press Office in the late 1990s. Following the discovery that his mail was being screened by the USPS, Pickering and his supporters initiated a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Department of Justice and the United States Post Office to find out what was going on as well as a lawsuit when the response to the FOIA was slow. Pickering will come to Flywheel to discuss his case and pass the hat to raise money to help defray the costs of his case.
