Please join us for adult religious education when we will read from Howard Thurman and discuss of his understanding of mysticism and spirituality.  As an African-American, he dedicated his work to bringing people together and his writings are still an inspiration.  Howard Thurman lived from 1899-1981.  He had a college degree from Morehouse College and a ministerial degree from Colgate Rochester Seminary when he undertook a semester of special study with Quaker Rufus Jones at Haverford College.  Though he never joined a Quaker meeting he was a member of the the Wider Quaker Fellowship and remained closely connected to Friends.
