“Remixing the Quaker Tradition:
Renewal in a Participatory Culture”
C. Wess Daniels
We will be looking at how Quakers can both be faithful to their tradition, while making space for evolution and renewal to occur. Specifically, we will look more deeply into what is known as “participatory culture” and gain insights into how Friends can become apprentices to their tradition, while creating renewed and participatory communities.
Wess Daniels is the William R. Rogers Director of Friends Center & Quaker Studies at Guilford College. He is interested in human interactions, spiritual development and revitalization of human community. Prior to teaching at Guilford, Wess was a “released minister” at Camas Friends Church in Washington State. He is the author of “A Convergent Model of Renewal: Remixing the Quaker Tradition in a Participatory Culture.” (2015), and has a passion for the renewal of the Quaker tradition.
