Friends’ Decision-Making and Clerking: Participating in Meetings for Business with Joy and Confidence
November 17, 2023 - November 19, 2023$395 – $540
An on-campus weekend workshop with Steve Mohlke and ,O on liberatory clerking skills and principles.
Nov 17-19, 2023
6:00pm Friday through lunch on Sunday
This is an opportunity for both new and experienced clerks of Friends’ meetings and committees to meet and think together about the role of presiding clerk in the spiritual practice of meeting for business.
The workshop will address racism in the context of Friends’ decision-making and clerking. We need to pay attention to racism because it affects (infects) nearly everything in this society. We will be lifting up decision-making processes that seek to liberate the Spirit among all participants.
There will be handouts to follow along during the program, exercises, and opportunities to share experiences, with most work being done in a whole group setting. It is expected that each person will leave the weekend with new energy and enthusiasm for being a clerk, feeling well grounded in both the theoretical and the practical.
