Faithfulness Groups: Virtual Workshop Series 2020
10:00AM - 12:00PM
Faithfulness Groups are small groups that provide mutual support and clearness in living a faithful life and following leadings over time. In this online workshop we’ll learn about the format, practice some skills, and hear stories about how such groups adapt and evolve. Participants will also have the opportunity in small groups to share and receive help in discernment about how you’re currently being called to faithfulness. Ongoing Faithfulness Groups can be a crucial support for Friends seeking to find holy accompaniment, spiritual grounding, and mutual accountability for faithful service, witness, and ministry in these challenging times.
