Deep, gathered worship, vocal ministry, discernment, and leadings for action all arise from the same Source. While entering into that Source is partly Grace, there are also practices we can learn which can help us find our way there, more fully and more often.
While modern Friends have tended to divide ourselves into “contemplatives” and “activists,” that artificial division does not serve us well. The one Source feeds both contemplation and action, and if we want to live fully in its Life and Power, we need to open to all the directions it calls us. This workshop is for Friends anywhere on the continuum between contemplative and activist who are seeking deeper Life in the Spirit and clearer direction in their witness.
Through experiential exercises, small group sharing, large group processing, and worship, we will create a community of deep trust and openness, taking off the armor shielding our hearts and opening us into deeper communion with each other and the Divine Source. We will spend time exploring how that deeper communion enhances each of our experiences of worship, listening for vocal ministry, and listening for and discerning individual leadings for action.
