Event Description

Hearing and Responding to the Promises of Jesus in the Gospels

Facilitated by Jack Smith and Ken Jacobsen

April 25-27, 2014

Throughout the gospels, Jesus promises us a new way of life with Him, a promise He offers us again and again through His words and deeds. We can think of the gospels as a living
conversation with Jesus and His way. What specifically does Jesus promise us in the gospels and what must we do in return, to follow Him into this new way of life?

This weekend is an opportunity for us, through the gospels, to hear and respond, individually and collectively, to the promises of Jesus.

Ken Jacobsen, with his wife Katharine, both members of Stillwater Meeting, has led retreats on Quaker faith and practice and sacred community at Friends Center, at Pendle Hill, and at their home in Wisconsin. Ken currently teaches theology and social and personal transformation at Chicago Theological Seminary.

Jack Smith is a member of Rockingham Meeting and a recorded minister in OYM. He received an M.A. from ESR in 1970. Jack and his wife Susan live on a dairy farm in Virginia which they operated for almost 20 years before turning it over to one of their three children and her family. Jack works as a clinical pharmacist at a local community medical clinic and also teaches a graduate-level pharmacology course. He has facilitated other weekends at the Friends Center on such topics as Simplicity and Barclay’s Apology.
