Vital Friends: December 2016
Vital Friends is FGC’s monthly eNewsletter that shares news, resources, and announcements with Friends. Below is the introductory text and table of contents.
How do you seek Spirit in your day-to-day life? What role does your meeting play in your spiritual journey? These are some of the queries we considered as we brought our newest program into being. The Spiritual Deepening program was created to help Friends and newcomers enhance their personal and communal spiritual journey through in-person and online learning groups.
This month, we are devoting a significant portion of our newsletter to the Spiritual Deepening program and how it will make a difference in the lives of Friends and their communities. Scroll down to learn more about the program and its resources, and meet the Program Coordinator working tirelessly to connect Friends with a more meaningful Quaker experience. And for Friends seeking thoughtful gifts to share with loved ones this holiday season, we’ve put together a reading list of featured titles from QuakerBooks for the newcomer and spiritually curious seeker in your life.
Until our next issue, we wish you and your meeting a blessed and safe holiday season!
