22/09/2018, 10:30 am - 4:00 pmat Warwick Quaker Meeting House, Warwick
What elements and practices are essential in creating vibrant, supportive communities in our Quaker Meetings? The workshop takes each section of Advice 18 and through a series of activities looks at ways to foster that sense of a vibrant, supportive all inclusive community. It is about discovering love, peace and tenderness through creating radical welcome and opportunities for deepening connection.
In Quaker Faith and Practice it says:
‘To Quakers, the visible mark of being a ‘church’ is not conformity to a particular creed, or liturgical or sacramental practice, but the quality of communal life which reveals the extent of the community’s willingness to seek and follow the Spirit’s call to loving fellowship…’
How can we build that restorative, loving community from which our lives individually and corporately are nourished and can speak? During the day there will be a range of activities which are all by invitation. By having a range of activities we hope that there will be something for everyone. Friends will be working in pairs, small groups and plenary sessions.
The facilitators for this workshop will be Ann Banks and Val Bone from Hebden Bridge LM and Madeleine Prager from Rugby LM.
Details: 10:00 for a 10:30 start; refreshments provided; lunch will be bring and share; finish at 16:00.
