Nurturing Faithfulness with Marcelle Martin
“Nurturing Faithfulness”, a course by Marcelle Martin, is being offered at Pendle Hill this month. A few days remain to join a wonderful group Sunday April 15-through Thursday April 19, on Pendle Hill’s beautiful campus dedicated to Quaker study, living and retreat. All are welcome for Spirit-led learning and community, located in Wallingford, Pennsylvania.
Marcelle says: This course offers an opportunity to open more fully to God. We’ll learn practices for sensing the movement of the Spirit, clarifying discernment, responding with faith, and encouraging faithful action. We’ll engage in the Faithfulness Group process, a practice which can provide ongoing support for a Spirit-led life. The rhythm of our days will include silence, prayer, time in nature, small groups, study of short Quaker texts, inspiring stories of early and contemporary Quakers, and sharing from the heart. There will be extended time for worship together and the opportunity to bless each other’s next steps in faithfulness.
“Nurturing Faithfulness” is an opportunity to receive help in connecting to deep and loving inner guidance. You’ll come away with individual and group practices that can provide long-term ongoing support, including Faithfulness Groups.
