We very much look forward to engaging with Friends for the week of the FGC Gathering. This website will be one avenue for resource distribution, check-in and—with individual logins (upper right hand corner of screen) to post reflections/articles, etc. on this website and a Facebook group (click the Facebook icon, also located on the upper right corner of screen)—a way of interacting with each other before during and after our workshop. The workshop is described as follows:
Practicing Prophetic Ministry. The workshop will be a prayerful exploration of how we, as individuals and as a religious society, live our lives in the prophetic stream, taking our part in the eternal story. Prophetic ministry—God’s Spirit speaking and acting though our lives—is at the foundation of our Quaker experience and witness. We will trace how the prophetic is revealed in the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures, flows through the lives of early Friends and ministers to our modern condition. Reflecting on our experiences, we will share stories of how the Spirit speaks through us today. We hope that participants will gain a clear sense of how we can nurture and encourage expressions of prophetic ministry in each other, in our meetings and in our witness to the wider world.
