Way of the Spirit Online


Online with Way of the Spirit 2020-21
Prayer and Learning for Quaker Spirit-Led Action

Accessible online mini-courses will explore essential Way of the Spirit themes—Quaker discernment, prayer, beloved community, and leadings in everyday ministry. Each course will stand alone.

Because of the success of Progresa’s virtual programming so far this year, we have decided to launch an on-line Teaching English experience for students and volunteers from November 30 through December 4, 2020.
