A online reading and discussion group with Bob Runyan and Jim Anderson
Mondays across March: March 4, 11, 18, 25, and April 1, 2024, at 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
Each of the five sessions will be 90 minutes.
New to Friends? Want a refresher? Just curious? Read along among friends, and discuss and reflect on this short classic by Ben Pink Dandelion. Jim and Bob will lead the group through the book’s chapters using small group queries and worshipful exchange.
Take note! Ben Pink Dandelion has also written a longer book called “An Introduction to Quakerism.” While this book is highly recommended for those who wish to read more, this online reading group will be based on Ben’s short book “The Quakers: A Very Short Introduction.”
All are welcome to join this online reading group. Please send any and all questions to email@example.com.
