QREC Conversation Circles

Conversation Circles are online video conferences which provide a space for Quaker religious educators across geographic regions to share and collaborate about why and how they do their work. Each conversation has a different topic. Participants self select and about 10 participants can join on each call.

Below are the notes from past conversations which are rich with descriptions of the joys and challenges being experienced in Quaker faith formation through religious education today. This first series focused on "welcome" in our meeting communities.  Watch this website for announcements of future Conversation Circles or email us at quakercollaborative4re@gmail.com with ideas for conversation topics.
