Do you know who you want to become...and do you know how to get there?
As part of a book-length project, this Saturday seminar will build upon Professor Paul Anderson’s 1985 Quaker Lecture at Western Yearly Meeting (Indiana), noting the connections between the human-divine encounters of the biblical prophets and apostles, leading from life-changing moments to life-long callings. As students find similar accounts in the lives of such world-changing Quaker leaders as George Fox, Margaret Fell, John Bellers, John Woolman, and Elizabeth Fry, they will reflect on the same within their own lives. Put simply, how can each of us discern something of life’s purpose–as a spiritual calling–in being stewards of our most memorable transforming moments? Reflecting together as a community of fellowship and discernment, may indeed produce clarity as to life’s callings and our reason for living. As Don Green once said: “What the world needs is YOU!” And, our time together will take that conviction seriously. Come join us for a day apart, open to the liberating power of truth within and also in the world.
Join Professor Paul Anderson, Professor of Biblical and Quaker Studies at George Fox University from 10am-4pm on April 15th for a day of fellowship and discussions on vocational discernment.
