Event Description

Convergent Opportunities:
Over the past few years, someone has usually organized an evening Interest Group for Convergent Friends or some sort of wider blogger meet-up at the Gathering. If you know of any of these, please add them to the comments below. Also: if there's any particular workshop that you'd recommend, add that with a note why you think QuakerQuaker readers might want to check it out.

Also, the Quakerspring Gathering is taking place the preceding week in Barnesville Ohio. It was scheduled from 6/27-7/4 between the Wider Fellowship of Conservative Friends Gathering (6/25-6/27) and the FGC Gathering (7/4-7/10) in the hopes that those Friends with open schedules might be able to attend multiple events.
