Convergent Friends at Quaker Center!

In case you hadn't heard, there will be a fabulous weekend workshop at Ben Lomond Quaker Center next month. Featuring Wess Daniels and Martin Kelley! (And me too.) And Chris M. and a host of other very cool people. (Feel free to leave a comment here if you know you're coming!)

February 20-22, 2009. Starts around 5:00 on Friday and ends around 2:00 on Sunday. Quaker Center is in the Santa Cruz mountains, about an hour and a half south of San Francisco.

The official title is Reclaiming the Power of Primitive Quakerism for the 21st Century. The unofficial subtitle is a weekend for convergent Friends to get together, hang out, tell stories, sing, eat, hike, and wrestle with how to answer the question, "What is a convergent Friend?" We will also have some practical experiments with traditional Friends practices, some discussion of historically convergent movements in the diverse history of the Religious Society of Friends and extended waiting worship. As well as an ongoing conversation about how to support and extend the conversation in between weekend gatherings.

Anyway, now is the time to sign up. If you want on-site child care, you need to contact Quaker Center by this coming Sunday, February 1, so that they can make arrangements. If you have questions about costs or special food or mobility needs, etc., contact Quaker Center and they will very graciously try to work things out. (They are very patient but they're not miracle workers.) Even if you have no special needs, the sooner you let Quaker Center know you're coming, the better.

Here is the link to the registration form. It is also available from my side bar, on Facebook, on www.convergentfriends.org (thanks to Wess) and it's a topic of interest at the top of the QuakerQuaker site. (thanks to Martin)

If you have specific hopes or questions about the content, that's a good topic for a comment here. Hope to see you soon!
