TO TAKE PLACE AT PRINDLE POND CONFERENCE CENTER CHARLTON, MA
AUGUST 17-‐20, 2012 FRIDAY-‐MONDAY
This fourth annual gathering of Christ-‐centered Friends from the Northeast at Prindle Pond reaffirms our original epistle from our 2009 gathering: “to Friends everywhere, and to all who seek love, joy, hope, and meaning in life” and “Knowing that language and doctrinal notions have caused unnecessary divisions among people of faith, we have no desire to add to these, but simply to stand with Jesus Christ at an open door, where He offers His light and love.” Our second gathering, 2010, called us to “be Living Epistles of Christ” as written in 2 Corinthians 3:2-‐3. Our third gathering’s statement included: “We joyfully invite each other to continue this experience of our blessed community in Christ, learning and growing together in our faith and practice.”

A Note from the Program Committee:
Our aim is to help ourselves listen, together, at Jesus' feet. While listening, we can expect to receive guidance and the strength to carry out what we are called to do. Christ gives us wisdom, generously and without condescension. He may choose to speak through some of us, or He may communicate His will directly to each of us, without a word being spoken.
We have designed a schedule that will give us time to share stories, hopes and concerns with one another and to learn from one another. There will be extensive times of waiting, unprogrammed worship – times for us to go deeper, to rest in the Love of Christ which transcends language and our individual pride and limitations. There will be times for prayer and worship sharing groups, and times for singing, as well as times for fellowship over meals and during free time.
We hope you will join us to share in this faith adventure.
