Annual Sessions

July 24-28, 2019 at The College of New Jersey

The theme for the 339th Annual Sessions is “How do we Center ourselves in Trust and Love“. To “center” is to access the essential knowingness that you are alive, which is all you need to see what is true. Annual Sessions is a wonderful opportunity for Friends of every age from 100+ Meetings to gather together for fun, business, and fellowship. Grounded in Spirit, we conduct shared business, plan collective projects and learn from one another in worship sharing and in interesting workshops.
