Stoking the Fire: A Gathering in the Power of Christ (May 22-25)

In all of our yearly meetings, there are individual Friends who are on fire. They may be bold and prophetic and fiery. Or they may be quietly longing for deep spiritual intimacy with Christ and others. Perhaps they feel isolated. Perhaps their meetings/churches don’t always know what to do with them. Perhaps they yearn to gather with others who are in that condition, who also feel the intensity of the Holy Spirit burning in them. On Pentecost weekend – May 22-25, 2015 – we invite Friends to gather in Cincinnati, Ohio for a retreat experience entitled Stoking the Fire.

Quaker United Nations Summer School – Geneva, Switzerland (July 5-17)

For people with an active interest in international affairs

    • Would you like to study the UN at first hand?
    • Do you want to meet people from all over the world?
    • Are you aged 20 to 26?

The Summer School aims to provide an introduction to the work of the United Nations.

Quaker Spring Gathering – Poughkeepsie, New York (June 26-July 1)

If you yearn for a more vibrant spiritual community,
If you hunger for more time for worship, reflection, and deepening the connections among Friends,
Come to Quaker Spring!

We invite all Friends hungry for spiritual community, of all ages, to spend time in worship, reflection, conversation, and play. We hope to bring together Friends from all branches of Quakerism, to share what Spirit-led Quakerism is about at its core–and to experience it together.
