New England Yearly Meeting (NEYM) will hold a Living Faith Gathering in Portland (ME) on April 14. This all-day event will be held at Cheverus High School in Portland Maine. Both Wendy Schlotterbeck and Doug Bennett from Durham Friends will be leading afternoon workshops.
The Living Faith Gathering will focus on how Friends are living—and can more fully live—our faith in the world, helping to bring about the Beloved Community for all. Through worship, workshops, small groups, and more, we will be deepening our capacity to foster the relationships of healing and justice so needed at this time.
Living Faith provides child care of ages infant-4 years, and a youth program for elementary and middle school students. High school-aged teens can choose to attend the youth program or the adult program.
NEYM asks that you register in advance. This is a “pay-as-led” event.
