Peterson will give a series of short and lively lectures about the Bible for the annual gathering of New England Quakers.
The theme for this year’s Sessions will be “Living Into Covenant Community”, as we explore what it means to be a community of faith gathering from throughout New England, united in the presence and guidance of the Spirit. We are pleased to announce that our Yearly Meeting Bible Half-Hour presenter will be Peterson Toscano. A former member of Hartford Friends Meeting, Peterson was active in NEYM as a Resource Person for Young Friends retreats, and several years ago he presented the Tuesday evening performance at Sessions. Now a member of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, he returned to New England in 2012 as the Bible Half Hour presenter for the Friends General Conference Gathering held in Kingston, Rhode Island. (Audio of his talks here) Peterson’s theological explorations include LGBTQ and gender issues, but have also expanded to address climate change and environmental justice.
