Embracing Change – Growing and Strengthening Quaker Communities

I’m inspired by Friends’ excitement. I’ve only been FGC’s Spiritual Deepening Coordinator for two months, and already I’ve heard from so many Friends about how excited they are to bring the Spiritual Deepening program to their meeting.

I know that many of you are eager to get started on outreach and building a deeper spiritual community in your meeting. I’m excited to share a few resources that you can use today:

  • Working on outreach? The Grow Our Meetings Toolkit includes resources and activities to help Friends at your meeting get to know each other and newcomers on a deeper level
  • Looking for an outside perspective?Check out FGC’s list of Friends willing to travel to help with outreach, conflict, mentoring a new meeting, and inclusion
  • Searching for Religious Education ideas? Start with activity pages for children, or explore the selection at QuakerBooks

These resources are made possible thanks to your generous financial support. Please consider donating today!

In the Spirit,

Rachel Ernst Stahlhut
Spiritual Deepening CoordinatorPS – You can also sign up for updates on the Spiritual Deepening Program, which will launch in the fall.
