Peter Blood-Patterson will welcome a series of different Friends as guest leaders for these monthly Bible hours (sponsored by Woolman Hill and Beacon Hill Friends House). We will have a chance to hear what role the Bible plays in each of these Friends’ lives and to hear what approaches to the Bible they find work in their personal practice and group settings.
October 4: Carl Magruder
"Psalm 22: Lamentation & the liberation of the spiritual imagination”
Carl has chosen a passage and subject arising for him from the grief he has experienced in response to the news of Ruth Bader Ginsberg's death.
November 1: Adria Gulizia
December 6: Colin Saxton
We will then spend some time listening to and reflecting together on a passage that is rising for our guest leader. This will be a participatory event with a chance to let God speak to our hearts through the Bible—and to share what we are hearing with each other in small breakout groups and in the group as a whole.
This is an opportunity to learn from and spend time with a variety of Friends for whom the Bible provides a doorway to the living Spirit. Welcoming to all whatever your previous experience is with the Bible!
Friends are welcome to attend single sessions or the whole series.
The sessions will run from 4:00–5:15 p.m. Eastern Time on the first Sunday of the month. The Zoom room will be open anytime after 3:45 p.m. to settle in and get any tech assistance needed. There will be an optional informal Q&A discussion from 5:15 to 5:30 p.m.
