“On the way, Jesus asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say that I am?’ Then [after they had answered] he asked them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’” Mark 8:27-29
Following the Quaker practice of attention to spiritual questions, we will allow Jesus’ query: “Who do you say that I am?” to search us during this weekend of worship, silence, scripture, journaling and sharing. There is no one “right” answer. We seek to open ourselves to words, images, visions, stories, or simple silence that may arise from the question. Who is Jesus? Who are we as fellow children of God, as followers of the Way, the Truth and the Life he teaches us?
The Friends Center in Barnesville, Ohio, is a retreat and conference center for exploring Christian unprogrammed Quakerism and its meaning today. It is rooted in Ohio Yearly Meeting (Conservative).
