Broken Vessels Quaker Ministries is the outgrowth of a leading by Deborah Fisch and Lloyd Lee Wilson to undertake a joint teaching ministry designed to help individual Friends become more deeply rooted in the Quaker faith tradition, especially as it has been expressed among Conservative Friends. Interested Friends are invited to join us as apprentices to that tradition, gathering for Deeper Roots: a series of four long weekends over an 18-month period to explore together in four foundational areas of the tradition: personal and corporate spiritual disciplines, historical gratefulness, scriptural literacy, and contemporary communities of faith.
The first gathering in the Deeper Roots series is scheduled for 4/27 – 4/30, 2017, at Bethany Hills Camp near Nashville, TN. Future gatherings for the same cohort of Friends are planned for 10/12-15, 2017, and in 4th month and 10th month, 2018. Cost for the series will be $1,800; payments can be made one gathering at a time (i.e., $450 every six months). Other payment plans can be arranged on request. Broken Vessels Quaker Ministries will match any financial assistance received from monthly, quarterly, or yearly meetings for program expenses (i.e., other than transportation expenses) on a dollar for dollar basis. Further details will be published here as they become available. Contact us directly through this web page to receive information directly via email, including registration forms.
