Event Description

Bible Study, Worship, Quiet Time, Evening Explorations & Fellowship

Are you longing for more quiet opportunities to worship & share with other Friends? Would you enjoy taking part in a radically unprogrammed retreat with Friends from a variety of theological backgrounds for a few days on your way to the gathering next summer? Have you ever heard of Quakerspring?

This gathering will immediately follow Ohio YM's Christian Education Camp and the Conservative Friends Gathering, both held in Barnesville, and will just precede FGC Gathering in Bowling Green, Ohio. Come for a day or a week!

The intent of all speaking [in meeting for worship] is to bring into the Life, and to walk in, and to possess the same, and to live in and enjoy [that Life], and to feel God's presence, and that is in the silence, (not the wandering whirling tempestuous part of man or woman)...There is the flock lying down at noon-day, and the feeding of the bread of life, and drinking of the springs of life, when they do not speak words. For words declared are to bring people to [the Life] and [are for] confessing God's goodness and love, as they are moved by the eternal God and his spirit....
Adapted from The Works of George Fox, volume IV p.174 (Philadelphia: Marcus T.C.Gould, 1831.

I look forward to hearing from Friends who attended this event. I thought of you often throughout the weekend.
