The Social Justice and Spirituality Thread Gathering is an opportunity to engage in one of the more fundamental aspects of Quaker spirituality–transformative community. Through transformative community, Quakers understand that there is a strong connection between working toward social justice and walking through life in mindful spirituality. Insights emerge from a life that expresses and searches for that of God in everyone. Learn more about the inspiration behind this Thread Gathering here.
