Quaker Religious Education Collaborative invites all to join them for a free Online Practice and Discussion Group led by Nadine Hoover and Beth Collea
The group meets monthly to enrich adult Quaker Religious Education for ourselves and our meetings/churches. Each month will open with worship and a message from the book Walking in the World as a Friend: Essential Quaker Practices (available on the QREC website). Then, we will hold worship sharing to hear from each person, followed by a discussion on any questions, reflections, or implications for us as Friends, and close with worship. We may discuss practices, such as journaling, spiritual companions, and faith and practice or scripture study, that help us and our meetings/churches.

This is a spiral curriculum. Every time we engage the themes, we bring more to the reflections and go deeper. In 2024, we plan to meet the second Monday of the month in January, February and March and take a one-month break in April. We expect to continue this pattern of 3 months on and 1 month off through 2024.
