Inspiration and Practice: the spiritual grounding of our ecumenical and interfaith work (booking page for Area Meeting representatives)
£170.00 – £245.00
Ecumenical and interfaith work can bring moments of real breakthrough as well as sticky challenges. Our speakers will help us explore the spiritual depth in such moments. What helps encourage moments of openness and insight? How do we honestly face and deal with the barriers of substantial difference? We will bring such reflections together with examples of practical work on the ground, making use of the up-to-date snapshot of current Quaker interfaith and ecumenical activity produced through research undertaken for QCCIR by Woodbrooke.
Booking for this event is currently open only to representatives appointed by their Area Meeting. If you have been appointed by your Area meeting, please book below (if appropriate, you can request that an invoice is sent to your Meeting treasurer for payment). The priority booking period for AM representatives will close on 31 January 2019 – after that point, any remaining places will be available for general bookings.
