LJ Boswell

LJ Boswell

Resident Friend

In collaboration with FMC members, committees, groups, and staff, LJ is involved with all aspects of the FMC community. In living and working in the center of the Meeting they function, among other things, as a bridge builder, helping folks navigate this large meeting and connect more deeply with the FMC community. With a Masters in Divinity and years of experience as an administrator and educator, they are well prepared for this work. LJ has been with FMC since 2017.

LJ lives on-site, so you will likely see them often. When you do, LJ invites you to say hello, tell them about yourself, ask questions about FMC, and share your experiences and suggestions for FMC. In other words: they are hoping to get to know you, assist you on your spiritual journey and help you settle more deeply into our community and your spiritual journey. They would also love to hear any feedback you have for how FMC can improve.

LJ is usually working at FMC Sundays through Thursdays. Their hours vary each day depending on the needs of the community. They are usually off and unplugged from FMC on Fridays and Saturdays. Contact LJ at resident@fmcquaker.org or 617-876-1868.

Our Center Residents are our partners in keeping Friends Meeting at Cambridge a welcoming place to worship and visit. You’ll see them most open evenings and weekends hosting at the front desk. They support our members and guests by helping them find their meetings and offering help when needed. Center Residents also help us keep the building and grounds clean.
