141 adults and 21 youth gathered at the Life Enrichment Center in Fruitland Park Florida for an amazing 5 days of community: worship, worship sharing, over 20 workshops, intergenerational birdhouse-building, the Friday night dance with the Faith & No Practice Band, the Walton Retreat & Lecture with Peterson Toscano, business meeting plenaries—and a great Youth Program.
Save the date for next year’s Gathering: March 28th -April 1st, 2018. Our theme will be a Quaker Response in Turbulent Times, with Walton Lecturer and Workshop Facilitator Sa’ed Atshan.
