Welcome

Workshop: Quaker Theology for our Time -- David Johns

 

What are the features of a Friends theology and how might it speak to the challenges and opportunities of our own time? When we think about faith, what grounds us and guides us? Does this lead us to Good News or simply to more confusion? How can our local meetings talk together about the things we hold dear?

Workshop: Conflict Transformation -- Lonnie Valentine

 

What can we learn from the field of conflict resolution in order to promote spiritual growth? Insights from Christianity and Quaker tradition on reconciliation can be supplemented by insights from practitioners of conflict resolution in the larger world. This work can be applied to interpersonal, Meeting/Church or larger social conflict.
