Event Description

Co-led by QuakerQuaker's Martin Kelley and C. Wess Daniels

Friends have long sought to model tight-knit, intensive faith communities. Lately, however, much of Quaker life has devolved into bland institutionalism, endless committees, and hour-a-week worship. Learn how to slow down and come back together as a community rooted in the kind of holy obedience Thomas Kelly wrote about. Join Convergent Friends to explore afresh Christian and Quaker models and new experiments like the “New Monastic” movement. Discover ways to re-root ourselves and our communities in living faith.

About the Leaders:
Martin Kelley is a South Jersey Friend with a concern for outreach and ministry and a passion for looking anew at Friends’ testimonies, language, and practices. Before becoming an independent web developer, he worked with Friends General Conference and Friends Journal. He publishes, a community site for the Convergent Friends movement.

C. Wess DanielsC. Wess Daniels is a member of the Evangelical Friends Church, Eastern Region. He is pursuing a PhD at Fuller Theological Seminary (CA) on issues related to contemporary culture, missiology, and renewal in Quaker meetings. He blogs at
