From earliest days, Quakers have been moved and guided by the Inner Teacher to act conscientiously in the world to “see what Love can do” to mend a world rent by injustice and oppression.
In contemporary Quaker circles, Friends may speak of contemplative Friends and activist Friends, implying a false dichotomy—that some Friends are mystics and others are actively engaged in mending the world. To be faithful to our tradition and to the leadings of the Light, both types of Friends are seekers after Truth. We participate both in mysticism and resistance to the ways of the world by standing and moving in revealed Truth.
In this extended weekend together, we will hear plenary speakers, engage in extended worship, and explore both our heritage and what Spirit asks of us today in mending a broken world and creating the Beloved Community.
Speakers include Stephen Angell, Dwight Dunston, Eileen Flanagan, Doug Gwyn, Tom Hamm, Vanessa Julye, Amanda Kemp, Ingrid Lakey
