I am so thrilled to announce this retreat coming up next month in Central Massachusetts!
BEYOND QUEER 101
A Retreat for LGBTQ Quakers
with Peterson Toscano and Judy Williams
April 27-29, 2007, Woolman Hill Quaker Center
This weekend is aimed at Friends who have mastered the initial challenges of both coming out and of developing a spiritual life. Let’s explore the growing edges of our faith journeys, and support and challenge each other as we envision the path ahead.
- How do we express our Queer identity at this point in our lives, and what other identities have we developed and integrated into ourselves?
- How do our faith journeys inform our passions and our work?
- What roles have we grown into in our communities and our families?
- What are the new leadings that call to our hearts?
Leaders will help create a safe space for rest and reflection, as well as opportunities for exploration and growth.
Judy Anne Williams has played many roles in her life as a Queer Quaker, from keynote speaker to gospel singer, youth worker to social worker, and co-clerk to co-parent. She has a passion for medieval saints and mystics, radical Christianity, and good food. (oh, and she is LOADS of fun!)
I believe childcare will be available. Go to Woolman Hill’s website for specific details.
