Dear Friends,

I'm excited to let you know about some upcoming webinars in which I'll be participating.  I hope you'll consider attending one or more. (The webinars are free). Would you share this info with others who might be interested?

Quaker author Marcelle Martin will tell what she learned from studying the experiences of both the first Quakers and contemporary Friends, describing ten elements of the Quaker spiritual journey that were important both then and now. The transformative process she describes enables people to face the challenges of our time with radical faithfulness and God-given strength.

This online discussion will consider a Pendle Hill pamphlet by Marcelle Martin, "Invitation to a Deeper Communion." The pamphlet describes the origins of "extended meeting for worship" within Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, following the experience of early Friends, who often met in meetings for worship lasting for hours.  All are welcome!  Marcelle Martin will join discussion leader Janaki Spickard Keeler of the Pendle Hill staff, along with others from near and far who continue to find "Extended Worship" to be an important part of their spiritual lives. The pamphlet discussion will be preceded by an optional hybrid "extended worship,” hosted by Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting.
