    Pure Motions: the spiritual journeys of John Woolman

    This one day workshop is being held at Friargate Quaker Meeting House, York.

    The spiritual life of John Woolman was inseparable from his travelling ministry. As he went, he felt the movement of the spirit, challenged injustice, and shared his understanding of God’s love. During this day event held at York’s Friargate Meeting House, we’ll examine his life and works and consider how his travels gave him new opportunities to encounter God and proclaim the Kingdom. Together we’ll reflect on how our own journeys might become a spiritual discipline, both renewing and prophetic. You can also join us on Sunday for an early-morning Prayer Walk before Meeting for Worship at 10.30am.
