Quaker Heritage Day 2017 was quite a success! Thanks to everyone who participated, and especially to those who coordinated the program, food, and book table.
We are posting several items for those who couldn’t be there, or for those who were but would like to reflect more on Marcelle Martin’s ministry. First, a video of Marcelle telling the story of the Woodhouse, from the afternoon session:
Full-length video of all three sessions will be coming soon!
Second, the handouts from the day (all three together in one file).
Third, the audio of Marcelle’s Sunday message for worship, “A Community of Faithfulness,” based on the story of David & Goliath from I Sam 17:

Our Life is Love with Marcelle Martin
The Spirit-filled movement of early Quakerism demonstrates how a community collectively surrendering to the inward Light of Christ can actively participate in the divine transformation of human society, making divine Love and Truth more tangible and visible… ten elements of the spiritual journey experienced by the first Quakers and by Friends in our time… [can be] grouped into three sections: Awakening, Convincement, and Faithfulness.
Please join us at Berkeley Friends Church on Saturday, February 18, 2017, to explore these dimensions of the journey with author and workshop leader Marcelle Martin!
The attached flier has more information about Marcelle, her topic, and the schedule and costs for the day. Please note the registration deadline to reserve lunch and/or childcare is Friday, February 10. You can register online to let us know you are coming–it’s quick and easy and secure. Please use it today!
Please spread the word in your meetings and churches–we hope to see you at QHD 2017!
We’re excited about Quaker Heritage Day 2016, this coming Saturday, 4/16! I’ve known our speaker, Marlene Pedigo, for thirty years, and she was profoundly influential on me as a young adult, as I came to grips with Christian Quaker faith for the first time. Among other things, Marlene introduced me to George Fox’s Journal, and showed me how the faith of the first Friends could challenge and guide my own.
This weekend, she is going to share with us on “Forgotten Friends’ Testimonies (?)” The question mark is there because I think some of us may think that we haven’t forgotten about important things like eldering and supporting women in the ministry, but we may very well find ourselves learning some things…
Here’s the schedule for the day:
|9:00 am||Sign in, breakfast, book table|
|10:00||Elder: A Noun and a Verb|
|11:00||More on Elders and Eldering|
|1:30 pm||Women in Ministry|
See the attached PDF for more details. We look forward to seeing you this Saturday!
We are very pleased to say that registration is now open for Quaker Heritage Day 2016!
