Event Description

How do we understand and recognize prophetic ministry today? Who is called to participate? What are the risks, challenges, and gifts we experience? We will share how Friends are wrestling with this invitation, and explore what each of us is being taught about prophetic ministry today – as individuals and as a prophetic people. The Love that waits to transform every person is also the “refiner’s fire” that burns away the dross and leaves the pure metal, cleansed and ready to be used. How does the call change us? How do we distinguish spiritual guidance from self-will? What community practices can help us remain faithful in ministry?

For more information:


Margery Post Abbott travels in the ministry as a released Friend from Multnomah Monthly Meeting, Portland (OR). She teaches often at Pendle Hill, Woodbrooke, and other venues. Marge has written several books, including most recently, To Be Broken and Tender: A Quaker Theology for Today(Western Friend, 2010), along with Walk Worthy of Your Calling (with Peggy Senger Parsons) and A Certain Kind of Perfection. She is also the author of Pendle Hill Pamphlet #402, Christianity and the Inner Life. Marge has clerked North Pacific Yearly Meeting and Friends Committee on National Legislation.

Noah Baker Merrill seeks to be faithful in the living Quaker tradition of gospel ministry – the practical spiritual work of encouraging faithfulness and awakening hearts. Putney Friends Meeting (VT) has released him for vocal ministry, spiritual nurture, workshop facilitation, and leadership. Noah is an associate with Good News Associates and a founding board member of Quaker Voluntary Service. In 2009, Utne Reader magazine recognized him as one of “50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World.” He serves as Secretary of New England Yearly Meeting.
