Growing Edges of Quaker Religious Education
A Quaker Religious Education Conference
14-16 August 2015
Pendle Hill, Wallingford PA USA
We are excited to report that 48 Friends from 12 yearly meetings traveled to be together for a full weekend of sharing, learning, fellowship and worship. Together we created a multigenerational space that included Friends from across geographic and theological boundaries. We were blessed with many opportunities to network and build relationships that will support and sustain our RE work in our meetings and churches and further QREC's stewardship for life-long Quaker faith formation through religious education. Many reported coming away with a sense of the weekend being a covered time together.
Plans were made to collaborate on some projects throughout the year. A full report of the conference, including information about ways for Friends to be part of this ongoing work, will be available soon. Watch for an article about the conference and QREC soon in Friends Journal.
