The regular session opens on Tuesday. Patricia Nesbitt, a member of Sandy Spring Friends Meeting, an environmental consultant, and most recently a palliative care nurse, will be the Tuesday evening plenary speaker.
The Wednesday afternoon plenary program will feature a discussion by Young Adult Friends on some tools that Friends can use when confronting racism in their daily lives. The program is planned for ages 10 and up and will led by Dr. Jennifer DeLorge-Mckeown. Jennifer also will conduct a parallel program for K to 3nd/4th graders.
Eileen Flanagan will be the Saturday evening Carey Lecturer. Eileen worshiped regularly with us at BFM a number of years ago and is now a member of Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting in Pennsylvania. She is a Quaker author, activist, and teacher.
A wide range of workshops and interest groups will also carry out various aspects of this year’s theme or give us a chance to experience listening for new ideas and making connections.
