FGC e-Retreat on Beloved Community starting Jan 21, 2018

The Beloved Community eRetreat invites you to explore and practice what it means to live into Beloved Community, the ways we are called to recognize patterns of marginalization and exclusion and to act toward justice, and tools for transforming and vitalizing our meetings and communities.

Week 1: Living into Beloved Community
Week 2: Community Calls Us to Justice
Week 3: Patterns of Exclusion and Marginalization
Week 4: Tools for Transformation & Vitality

Offered January 21 – February 16, 2018 (four weeks, $35 pay-as-led participation fee)

How do we recognize patterns of marginalization and exclusion as we explore the depths of our own spiritual journey? Join seasoned Friends and those interested in learning about the Quaker Way for FGC’s upcoming Spiritual Deepening Beloved Community eRetreat, where we will explore and practice what it means to truly live into beloved community.

Over the course of 4 weeks, you and your online spiritual community will explore Quaker thought and practice as you consider what it means to co-create the Beloved Community that is “already… but not yet.” FGC is pleased to introduce Regina Renee Ward and Polly Washburn as our facilitators for this eRetreat (bios – scroll down).

“Reading about [other participants’] experiences and ideas was an awe-some experience in itself for me. I truly appreciate the community who succeeded in going deeper individually and with each other. It is a rare opportunity for Friends to join together in this way.”  – Spiritual Deepening eRetreat participant
