Integrating Children into the Spiritual Life of our Meetings—September 19

  • Brooklyn Meeting, 9 am – 4 pm
  • Download the registration form.
  • How can our meetings better integrate our children into the spiritual life of our Meeting? How can we give them a voice in their experience of Quakerism and an awareness of Quaker process? Participants will leave with new energy, new ideas, and new tools to implement these ideas.
        Sessions will explore both the worship and the community aspects of Quakerism, including children in the circle of meeting life: joys and challenges; supporting children's spiritual development; and hands-on approaches to teaching children Quaker process. Some parts of the day will be multigenerational and childcare will also be provided.
