Emily Higgs reflects on where Faith meets Action for Young Adult Friends

Our colleague Emily Higgs recently contributed an article to Friends Journal. Read her account of our Young Adult programming below.

"Like many Friends who found Quakers on their own or later in life, I will never fully know whether my commitment to peace and justice led me to Quakerism, or whether my love of Quaker theology and the testimonies sparked my commitment to peace and justice. Either way, the two are deeply intertwined for me, and the answer is probably not that important." Read more

Renew, Learn, Re-center, Inspire

In September, we shared news of renewal in Spirit’s care here at Pendle Hill, and we invited your feedback, which resulted in an outpouring of support, as well as questions, comments, and reflections. Your care and input influences us as we plan and we have read every message carefully. If you haven't yet had an opportunity to read about our recent community activities and new programs, we invite you to do so. Read more


Introducing our 2014-2015 Cadbury Scholar, Jeff Dudiak

As this year's recipient of the Henry Cadbury scholarship, Canadian Jeff Dudiak plans to perform a study around the ways in which Quakers divergently think about, and speak about (or don't), God.

"I am from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, where I am a philosophy professor at the King’s University.  I have a poet wife, Julie, and a baseball playing, snowboarding 13 year old son, York.  I am a lifelong Friend, raised in the Evangelical tradition, but having worshipped the whole of my adult life with liberal Friends."

Remembering Mary Wood

On Saturday, September 27th, a bulb planting ceremony took place in honor of Mary A. Wood, a longtime Friend and advocate of Pendle Hill, who died on September 21, 2014, at the age of 88.

A resident of Kendal at Longwood, Mary was a life-long and active Quaker and a lover of silence and solitude. Her capacity for deep listening and her keen intellect made her a friend to many. She is and will be missed.
