Walking with the Bible – Winter 2021 Series

Walking with the Bible is a monthly series of Bible hours on the second Sunday of the month is back for a second series by popular demand! Sponsored by Woolman Hill and Beacon Hill Friends House. For a second series of three sessions, Peter Blood-Patterson will welcome a series of different Friends as guest leaders.

We will have a chance to hear what role the Bible plays in each of these Friends’ lives and to hear what approaches to the Bible they find work in their personal practice and group settings. We will then spend some time listening to and reflecting together on a passage that is rising for our guest leader.

This will be a participatory event with a chance to let God speak to our hearts through the Bible — and to share what we are hearing with each other in small breakout groups and in the group as a whole. This is an opportunity to learn from and spend time with a variety of Friends for whom the Bible provides a doorway to the living Spirit. Welcoming to all whatever your previous experience is with the Bible! Friends are welcome to attend single sessions or the whole series.

The sessions will run from 4-5:15pm Eastern Time (USA) on the second Sunday of the month. The Zoom room will be open anytime after 3:45pm to settle in and get any tech assistance needed. There will be an optional informal Q&A discussion from 5:15 to 5:30pm.

An Introduction

The Quaker Religious Education Collaborative (QREC) is an international, cross-branch, grassroots network of Friends sharing a stewardship for lifelong Quaker faith formation through religious education. We formed in April 2014 and now serve more than 300 Friends in our network. We actively engage and support each other across languages and continents. We gather for regional and annual conferences and offer monthly Conversation Circles via an online conferencing platform. 

Steering Circle

We share leadership as part of our collaborative mission, making decisions using the Quaker ‘sense of the meeting’ process, sitting in expectant, worshipful waiting for the emergence of shared truth. Read more…

Working Circles

Our work  takes place in ‘circles’ or small groups of Friends who labor on a common task, usually meeting by video conference due to the geographic diversity of the membership. Read more…

This library is a forum for curricula, articles, videos and other educational materials on Quaker themes. You will also find principles, policies and procedures to strengthen operation of your child, youth and adult religious education programs.

Faith at Home

Home is the heart of faith formation for all families. This is especially true for Friends. As an experiential religion, Quakerism is best learned through living in loving community. Indeed, the vast majority of faith formation for our young Friends happens at home in the busy swirl of daily life.
