Greetings from Pendle Hill! I am the new communications and outreach coordinator here, and look forward to being in touch regarding our programming and educational opportunities.
I am reaching out today because several of you had a chance to join Doug Gwyn in his bible study half hours at NEYM annual sessions and I thought you might be interested to know that Doug will be joining Pendle Hill to teach an entirely online course this fall. This means that, without needing to come to campus, you have the opportunity to join in learning community with Doug again! Please share information about this course with your meetings as you are called.
More information about the course is available at our website, but I’ve also pasted information about the course below:
September 5-November 20, 2016
This course offers an opportunity to reframe Quaker faith and practice within the horizon of the global concern for sustainability. This reframing allows us to reclaim the Quaker tradition with fresh understanding and renewed purpose. The course is built around Gwyn’s book A Sustainable Life: Quaker Faith and Practice in the Renewal of Creation and several relevant Pendle Hill pamphlets, and will involve webinar conversations with thoughtful Quakers engaged in sustainability work, including Steve Chase, Marcelle Martin, Brian Drayton, Pamela Boyce Simms, Eileen Flanagan, and Ruah Swennerfelt.
Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have questions or concerns. For questions about financial aid and group discounts please contact Steve Chase at firstname.lastname@example.org or (610) 566-4507, ext. 123. Register today to save your spot!
I know that Radical Faithfulness was also the theme of NEYM Annual Sessions this year, and I wanted to extend an invitation to you and those at your meetings to consider applying for this year’s cohort of Pendle Hill’s flagship Radical Faithfulness course. More information below:
September 26, 2016-May 22, 2017 (online and on campus)
