As of today, you can view the Gathering Program online and register online. Some of my Friends have been encouraging me to register early, because they're concerned that the conference will fill up very quickly. You can see the list of workshops here and the fee schedule here or you can print out the program as a pdf. Thanks, Martin, for all your hard work on this. You can camp or stay in the dorms. You can even plan to ride the "peace train"with other Friends.
I've heard rumors that there will be a semi-organized Quaker blogger conversation - maybe on Monday night? I don't know quite how it will work, but other bloggers more experienced with FGC stuff than me will write something soon, I hope.
There are a number of workshops led by people I know and people I'd like to meet. My initial reaction is to sign up for the workshop "Deepening the Silence, Inviting Vital Ministry" led by my old Friend, Peter Crysdale on Quaker vocal ministry. But I don't know for sure yet. I didn't find one on spiritual writing or journaling, that I had hoped for. Also, it appears that Marcus Borg will no longer be a featured speaker, which is too bad, but I'm sure there's a good reason.
Are you planning to come?
