Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Welcome to the 2018 Gathering!

Dear Friends,

We look forward to experiencing the power of truth with you this summer in the midwestern port city of Toledo. 

Early Friends greeted one another by asking, “How does the truth prosper among you?” The Gathering offers a time and place for us to seek and share examples of the many ways truth prospers in our lives and communities.

It is our hope that this week will be a joyful time for our beloved community, and that it will be a time of challenge, insight and growth for each of us. 

May we return home with a deepened sense of our own personal integrity and a renewed clarity of purpose for inspired engagement in the world.

In love and truth, 

Claire and Paul Tinkerhess
