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. The first venture in that joint teaching ministry is 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 authentic contemporary communities of faith.
The first gatherings in the Deeper Roots series were held 4/27 – 4/30, 2017 at Bethany Hills Camp near Nashville, TN and 10/12-15, 2017 at Friendship Friends Meeting in Greensboro, NC. Future gatherings for the same cohort of Friends are planned for 4/12-15, 2018, and 10/11-14, 2018.
