Worship & Ministry hosts an adult religious education series, Testimonies for the Soul, beginning in February.Quakers have five “testimonies” that are important in our spiritual lives – Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and sometimes Stewardship. We will explore four of these testimonies in depth and look at ways they can guide us in our encounter with Reality, Quaker community and our world. One testimony will be explored each of four Tuesday evenings. We will gather in the Social Room of West Chester Meeting House at 5:45 pm and conclude at 7 pm. You may attend one session or all of them.
Simplicity – February 13
Peace – February 20
Integrity – February 27
Equality – March 6
Thomas Swain and Chris Smith will facilitate using traditional presentations and group learning focusing on how testimonies help your Quaker practice. If you have an interest in Quakerism or if you are seasoned Quaker, you are welcome to participate. Thomas Swain is a teacher of Quakerism and has traveled in Quaker ministry amongst British Friends for the last 10 years. He is a member of Middletown Meeting, retired public school librarian, and a resident of Crosslands.
