This Sunday: Quaker Women’s Theology Conference

This Sunday the co-clerks of the Pacific Northwest Quaker Women’s Theology Conference, Sarah Peterson and Ashley Wilcox, are joining us for worship and a potluck afterwards. I’m looking forward to their visit, Sarah will be preaching and her and Ashley will be discussing the upcoming conference on June 16-20, 2010, at Seabeck Conference Center in Seabeck, Washington. This is what they write on their website:

The Pacific Northwest Quaker Women’s Theology Conference welcomes women primarily from Canadian, North Pacific and Northwest Yearly Meetings. As women from divergent Friends traditions, we strive to articulate that which has been meaningful in the expression and development of our faith. We are open to God’s leadings and willing to make a commitment to prepare, to risk, and to be open to learning from one another.

Our purposes in coming together are:
• To grow in the knowledge and love of God, trusting that the Inward Teacher, the Christ within, the Inner Light, the Holy Spirit will be present to guide us;

• To create a place where it is possible to talk openly from different perspectives with love and honesty, and without rancor or tempering to accommodate perceptions of what might be acceptable;

• To use narrative theology, that is, our stories of faith, as a means of integrating our experiences and our understanding;

• To encourage articulation of experience in beliefs, both verbally and in writing, expecting that we will bring what we learn back into our home faith communities.

We’re hoping to send a good group of women from our meeting so if this sounds like something you might be interested in you should join us this Sunday. You can also find out more about the conference here.
