Doug Gwyn, Quaker Studies Teacher at Pendle Hill
Friends in the 21st century seek a sustainable life on the earth. When we look back on Quaker tradition over the past 350 years, we find this concern expressed and put into practice in various ways from the beginning.
This course will draw upon the resources of Quaker tradition – combined with our present-day concerns, insights, and leadings – to find that living stream of life among us. We will examine Quaker history, spirituality, worship and ministry, methods of spiritual discernment, social testimonies, and growing edges to discover the wholeness we seek.
Thursday 7:15 - 9:30 pm
