The Balby Epistle – today

April 19-21, 2024
an in-person Quaker Center program
with Paul Harris and Bob Runyan

The Elders at Balby – for Quakers in 2024. Almost 400 years later, the 1656 Epistle by the elders at Balby remains one of Friends’ most meaningful and consequential statements, offering advice to Meetings and individuals.

How much of the Balby Epistle is relevant today? What does it mean to us, and has its meaning changed? And what would a 21st century version of the Epistle look like?

Come spend a weekend in worship, fellowship and reflection as we seek to examine this fundamental Quaker statement in the light of our shared present.

Childcare will be offered at this program during the program sessions.

There will be an option to arrive a day early, on Thursday, April 18, for those who wish.
