Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Spiritual Deepening eRetreats: Becoming Patterns & Examples


This topic explores how Quakers put faith into practice. We will look at how our experience in worship leads us to a shared commitment of living our beliefs through our witness in the world. Friends work to create a world not as it is, but as it should be. This is often referred to as Quaker testimony. 

Over four weeks, participants will:

  • Explore the testimonies of early Friends and test them against their own inner promptings.
  • Listen to hear what other promptings there may be for new and modern-day revelations/testimonies.
  • Explore and engage in daily disciplines to create the inward space for more light to be generated.
  • Come to understand Friends’ view of social action as prompted by a transformation that reveals the Inward Spirit as the source of all action.

Offered May 6 - June 1, 2018 (four weeks, $25 pay-as-led participation fee)
