Save the Date: Quaker Heritage Day 2011

I’ve been asked to be the speaker for Quaker Heritage Day, a day long series of talks around, you guessed it, Quaker history that Berkeley Friends puts on every year. Since Brian Young (the released minister there) is sending out the postcards, I thought I’d send out a virtual one!

The title of the my presentation is:

Heralding The New Creation: Mission as Participation in the Quaker Tradition

Date: February 12-13, 2011 Berkeley Friends Church

The main theme I’ll be covering is related to renewal, convergent Friends and participatory culture. We will be investigating the renewal of tradition through a Quaker theology and practice of mission. This will give me an opportunity to share some of what I have been working on lately in my research. I really look forward to the trip down to Berkeley, and the visit with many Friends there. If you’re in the area, I hope you can make it! Also see the event page or the facebook event page for more details.

  1. Sounds great, but I’m assuming this is February 2011? I was going to put it up on the QQ Gatherings listing but will hold off till I hear. You could also post it there yourself of course 🙂

  2. I’m looking forward to it! I am remembering that we first met (in person) at QHD in 2006. What a great celebration of the fifth anniversary. Maybe Peggy Senger Parsons and Marge Abbott will come down?
