Event Description

As we are faced with the challenges of climate change what can John Woolman teach us? 

We know John Woolman for his witness against slaveholding. But what can he say to us today? About our relationship with material goods; about living simply and in tune with creation; about rightly valuing labor; about working to bring our own community and the world to a new understanding of what is right by appealing to the pure witness in others. We will touch on as many of these themes in Woolman's life and writings as possible by reading passages and considering implications for today

Michael Birkel will lead us in a Friday evening/Saturday program at Beacon Hill Friends House.

Hospitality is a possibility if you are coming from a distance. Register early (before 2/21) and email qsp@bhfh.org to let us know your needs.
