While I was attending the annual sessions of North Carolina Conservative, a Friend approached me and asked if I had heard anything about an upcoming conference that would be dedicated to Convergent Friends.
No, I hadn't.
(Usually a group of bloggers and other Friends interested in the Convergent conversation have a meet-up that is planned outside of a larger gathering, such as during Robin's experience at a recent QUIP meeting.)
Yesterday I remembered to look for such a thing: I did a Google search for "Max Carter convergent Friends." I came up with this blog post by Scott Wagoner. Here's an excerpt:
Just letting you know that Max Carter is planning a Quaker Renewal conference in November to be held at Deep River Friends Meeting in High Point, NC. It's theme will be "A New Kind of Quaker" and is intended to bring together young adults, seasoned (old) adults, and others that have an interest in what a "new kind of Quaker" looks like for the 21st century...I also did a bit of searching within QuakerQuaker, unsure if someone had already tagged this post, but it doesn't look like it.
So I thought I'd lift up the November event in case anyone missed it on the blog A New Kind of Quaker.
Of course I have my own reactions when I look at the likely workshops and the event's organizers--but my reactions are such because I haven't met Max Carter, Scott Wagoner, or a number of other Friends who are involved!
If any bloggers plan to attend, do let us know.
...Hmm, I wonder if there will be a Convergent Friends meet-up apart from the Convergent Friends event....? smile
