Lancaster Friends Meeting is delighted to announce that PHILIP GULLEY, prominent Quaker writer and speaker, will present two talks at the Meeting House on Saturday and Sunday, September 13 and 14. Philip is the author of many books, among which are If the Church Were Christian, If Grace Is True, If God is Love, and The Evolution of Faith.
His session at 9:30-11:30 on Saturday morning, September 13, will focus on his most recent book Living the Quaker Way. In this book and in his session he will share practical wisdom about what it means to bear witness to our hope for a better world, as outgrowths of Quakers’ core testimonies. The session will include significant opportunity for question and answer exchange with this thoughtful Quaker.
On Sunday morning, from 8:45-9:45, Philip Gulley will share his current thoughts about “the awakened soul.” Beginning with psychologist Abraham Maslow’s observations of characteristics of “self-actualized” people, Philip reflects on how those virtues can contribute to our spiritual well-being if we seek to incorporate them into our lives.
Lancaster Friends Meeting joyfully extends an invitation to all who would like to join us for either of these two free sessions with this witty and insightful Quaker. Guests attending the Sunday morning session are also invited, if they wish, to remain for Meeting for Worship at 10:00 and for a potluck meal following.
Copies of several of Philip Gulley’s books will be available for sale at both sessions, thanks to Aaron’s Books of Lititz.
