"Continuing Rev_l_tion: A Young Adult Friends Conference on Ministry, Earthcare and Social Action"

A program sponsored by Pendle Hill, Quaker Earthcare Witness and the Clarence and Lilly Pickett Endowment

March 27, 2012

Pendle Hill, Quaker Earthcare Witness and the Clarence and Lilly Pickett Endowment are delighted to announce an exciting opportunity from June 15-20, 2012, for all young adult Quakers in North America.  "Continuing Rev_l_tion: A Young Adult Friends Conference on Ministry, Earthcare and Social Action," will be an intensive and powerful six-day gathering offered at Pendle Hill in Wallingford, PA.  

All Young Adult Friends (ages 18-35) are invited to be a part of a six-day conference designed to strengthen a networked generation of awakened and effective spiritually grounded change agents.  The program will include inspirational speakers, workshops and trainings, worship and worship-sharing, fellowship, discernment of gifts and ministry, service and direct action.   At its core, this conference is about providing the foundational skills and training to inspire revelation -- or revolution -- as Friends strive to live into Spirit-led relationship with other Friends, communities, and the earth.  

This conference is open and welcoming to young adult Quakers of all backgrounds, experiences and Friends’ theologies.  The conference organizers recognize that while this gathering is firmly rooted in the un-programmed Friends' tradition, they also believe the thematic content to be urgently relevant to all branches of Quakerism and hope all interested young adults will feel that their voices belong at this table.

Applications are currently being accepted and will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and applicants will be notified within 2-3 weeks of submitting their application.  Apply early, as the conference organizers expect the conference to fill up quickly.  Program fees are $270 per participant for applications received by May 15, 2012, and $300 per participant for applications received after May 15, 2012.  Scholarships will be available for participants who need support, and interested individuals are encouraged to request financial assistance from their monthly/yearly meetings or communities.  More information about the conference can be found at www.pendlehill.org/yald.

Please share this opportunity with young adults in your community, and encourage those with interest to apply.  Any questions or inquiries should be directed to ehiggs@pendlehill.org.
