If one has been around Quakers long enough, we learn there are other Friends who do not worship or organize themselves as we do! Across the various branches of Friends and throughout our different cultural and theological perspectives, the shape and structure of our gatherings for worship and common life can look wildly different. What—if anything—connects us to our tradition and one another? What might we learn from one another?
During his 35+ years of Quaker service, Colin Saxton (Friends United Meeting) has had the privilege of visiting hundreds of meetings and churches, among dozens of yearly meetings. Traveling among Friends in North America, the Caribbean, South America, East Africa, Europe, India, Nepal, and Palestine, he has been enriched and perplexed by our vast differences and the powerful Presence that can unite us.
Join the Barnegat Friends virtually via Zoom as Colin shares some of this experience and engages in conversation with our community.
