Listening for What is Longing to be Expressed

This is a 2-day workshop, April 6 & 13, 2019.

Why consider attending?

Friends Couple Enrichment (FCE) is a spiritual ministry for couples who want to deepen what is already a satisfactory relationship. It is recognized by Friends General Conference, a national Quaker organization. (Interested couples can learn more at )


Have you sat in Silence and heard a whisper urging you to follow a leading? Too often we don’t listen to the Voice-within. It is common to dismiss the message as just some thought/idea you had and not one that is Spirit lead.


The NYM Journal aims to produce a publication that informs and inspires Friends with examples of Quaker faith and practice. Each issue will feature articles related to the Quaker values that are the focus of NYM Faith and Practice. We plan to publish three issues per year: Winter/Spring; Summer, and Fall. Deadlines will be announced in the e-News and posted on the NYM website (About>Publications).
