“Consider the Connections of Things”: John Woolman and International Relations
Michael Birkel, Shan Cretin, and Diane Randall
Saturday, June 14 – Founders Great Hall – 7:30-9:00 p.m.

How does the inward life of worship and the outward life of ministry for peace and social justice live in today’s world among Friends?. We will consider the document “Shared Security” (a collaboration of Friends Committee on National Legislation and American Friends Service Committee for reimagining US foreign policy) as read in the company of the 18th-centuryQuaker mystic and social reformer John Woolman.

Michael Birkel teaches religion at Earlham College and has written on Quaker spirituality and, more recently, interfaith understanding.

Shan Cretin is General Secretary of the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker organization that promotes lasting peace with justice, as a practical expression of faith in action.

Diane Randall is Executive Secretary at the Friends Committee on National Legislation, a Washington, DC-based Quaker lobby in the public interest.

Registration opens March 17th. Please join us!
