Because the Quaker group in Second Life includes both experienced Friends and those discovering Quakerism for the first time, I’ll be offering a series of four classes on Quakerism. Come for one or all!
Four Tuesdays: May 8, 15, 22, and 29, 6:30-8:00 PM SLT/PDT (9:30-11:00 EDT)*.
Classes will be held at First Friends Church of Second Life (Quaker/156/22).
A class of four sessions begins with the assumption that most things are left out! Here are the topics I plan to present:
May 8: Quaker History
The Religious Society of Friends from the 17th century in England to today all over the world.
May 15: Biblical Origins of Quakerism
We will be using the Friendly Bible Study method on John 1:1-9. If you have a preferred translation of the Bible, please come prepared to share the text in your version.
May 22: Meeting for Business
How do Quaker meetings and churches make decisions? What are the roles that are involved?
May 29: Quaker Spirituality
What are the distinctive elements of Quaker spirituality? What practices do Quakers use to deepen our spiritual lives?
The classes will include a combination of presentation, exercises, and discussion; the balance will vary considerably from week to week.
- I’m sorry that I’m not able to commit to a series of weekend times that would include people far from my own geographic location.
