Summer Adult Religious Education Programs

Summer RE program will consist of a variety of readings. The summer will include discussing various passages from the Bible with the aid of the Illuminate: Friends Bible Study series followed by a couple sessions that will explore hat honor and Quaker practice.  This discussion will be base on “Hat Honour, self-identity and commitment in early Quakerism,” which is an article from a recent issue of Quaker History  written by Sussan Wareham Watkins. The summer will end with an extended discussion on the topic of “that of God in everyone.  This discussion will be base on  “‘That of God in Every Man’-- What Did George Fox Mean by It?” which is an article from Quaker Religious Thought written by Lewis Benson.
