Broken Vessels Quaker Ministries is happy to announce that Deeper Roots 2 will begin in Ninth Month, 2020 at Ben Lomond Quaker Center in Ben Lomond, California. This joint teaching ministry offered by Deborah Fisch, Lloyd Lee Wilson, and Deborah Shaw is designed to help individual Friends become more deeply rooted in the Quaker faith tradition, especially as it has been expressed among Conservative Friends. Deeper Roots is a series of four long weekends over an 18-month period where participants explore together four foundational areas of the tradition: personal and corporate spiritual disciplines, historical gratefulness, scriptural literacy, and authentic communities of faith. In between gatherings we have video conferences, shared readings, and other activities.
Deeper Roots envisions being a Quaker as a lifetime apprenticeship commitment: there is always more to learn, more skills to acquire, and no one ever completes all the learning that there is to do. So we’re all lifetime apprentices to the faith tradition. We’ve added Deborah Shaw of Friendship Meeting, North Carolina Yearly Meeting (Conservative) to our original “lead apprentices” team and are excited at the possibilities her gifts and skills open up for Deeper Roots 2.0. She has introduced herself on the blog posting below.
