Adult Religious Education

The Adult Education Study Group has been meeting for six years generally twice a month, on Sunday mornings between 9:15 am and 10:15 am.

Using Pendle Hill pamphlets and Quaker books and other sources, the group began with consideration of various approaches of Friends to daily life issues. Then, it concentrated on similarities and differences between those approaches and other religious practices, including Buddhism, Judaism,  and Hinduism in a comparative religion reading context. For about the last year, the group covered Quaker history, including the writings of early Quakers right up through the 19th century. It is continuing its studies of Quaker history and writers.

All are welcome and need not to have participated previously as each session stands on its own. For more information, use the website "Contact Us" page.
