Life has been crazy-busy for me, in between the trips I am taking. So, in preparation for FGC's Gathering and before my last few minutes of free time are taken up by some other silly thing I remember needs doing, I thought I'd share this with you:
Fellow Quaker bloggers Robin and Martin and I have plans to convene an interest group on Monday night at the Gathering. Thanks to Beppe for his early input and support for this idea.
Here's the interest group's title and description. I believe a list of interest groups will be included in the registration packet that Friends receive on-site.
On Fire! Renewing Quakerism through a Convergence of FriendsPerhaps we'll see some of you there... if not on Monday night, then other times during the week.
Excited by the renewal of classic Quakerism? Want to reclaim traditional disciplines and language that seem on the brink of being lost? Interested in new forms for a living faith? We'll share how we are communicating across Quaker schisms and addressing our spiritual hunger as Friends. Hosted by Friends from QuakerQuaker.org.
UPDATE, Sixth Month 2006: Martin has asked me to "tag" this post so it will become part of what I think of as an online archive about the 2006 Gathering. So here 'goes: fgcgathering06.
UPDATE, Seventh Month 2006: To read some of what happened during the interest group, take a look at this post-Gathering entry.
