Grow Our Meetings Featured in Quaker Life
We were thrilled to see coverage of FGC’s Grow Our Meetings workshop recently in the pages of Quaker Life magazine. Grow Our Meetings held its pilot workshop this past March in Richmond, IN under the guidance of QuakerQuest Coordinator Rachel Ernst Stahlhut.
Learning to Grow Our Meeting by Annie Glen originally appeared in the May/June 2015 issue of Quaker Life. It is being shared with permission.
Happy 10th Birthday, Faith & Play™!
This year, Faith & Play™, a joint project of FGC and Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (PYM), celebrates 10 years of sharing stories to inspire spiritual wonder in children. The Faith & Play™ committee, clerked by Melinda Wenner Bradley, is grateful to Friends for their support and hope that Gathering attendees will join the celebration on the afternoon of Thursday, July 9th.
