New online learning opportunities at Pendle Hill

Hello NEYM monthly meeting friends! e-learning-235x125

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:

Quaker Studies Online– A Sustainable Life: Quaker Faith and Practice in the Renewal of Creation

September 5-November 20, 2016 

Doug-Gwyn
Doug-Gwyn

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 schase@pendlehill.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:

“Exploring the Quaker Way”

Our own Steve Chase visited and worshiped with us at Putney Friends Meeting this weekend.   He informed us of this new online learning opportunity offered by him at Pendle Hill.

“The goals of this course are to help seekers, attenders, and interested members of Friends meetings: 1) deepen their understanding of the Quaker movement; 2) better understand the spiritual journey common among early and current Quakers; 3) reflect on their own spiritual journeys within this spiritual tradition; and 4) become more familiar with several key elements of building vibrant and caring Quaker meetings.”

Restorative Justice Opportunities

Following you will find two upcoming restorative justice opportunities;


Pendle Hill

Beyond Crime and Punishment: Fostering Transformative Justice in Community

We envision a world where people who offend are not caged, exiled, and stigmatized for life, where public school children aren’t fodder for the school-to-prison pipeline, and where historic intergenerational wounds are acknowledged and healed.

Such a world is already in the making and looking for our support.

“Restorative justice is a process to involve, to the extent possible, those who have a stake in a specific offence and to collectively identify and address harms, needs and obligations, in order to heal and put things as right as possible.” —Howard ZehrThe Little Book of Restorative Justice

A Conference for Inspiration, Education, Networking, and Action
Mar 10-13, 2016

Special guests: Kay Pranis, Joy DeGruy, Rev. Nelson and Joyce Johnson, Lorraine Stutzman Amstutz, and many others!
