"I have Called You by Name": Being a Prophetic Movement in the 21st Century


Friday, October 12, 2018 (All day) to Sunday, October 14, 2018 (All day)


Friends Center of Ohio Yearly Meeting Barnesville , OH


What is prophecy? How did early Friends live into the tradition of the Hebrew prophets and the prophetic movement of the Early Church communities? What is Christ calling us to be as Friends in the world today? What gets in the way of our hearing and responding together to that call in the night from God? As Friends seeking to serve our God, how do we as a people become a prophetic movement in the world? During this weekend we will have times for worship and to consider questions such as these together, alert to Christ’s immediate teaching.

Peter Blood-Patterson feels called to help invite new Friends into Quaker faith & practice, deepen the lives of our meetings, and strengthen our capacity as Friends to respond to the enormous challenges facing our world today.
