North East Thames Area Meeting Retreat 23 September 2017
Kindlers-on-the-Road “Answering That of God”

Led by Peter Parr and Simon Risley from the Kindlers team
· What do Quakers mean when we speak of ‘that of God in everyone’?
· How might awareness of a divine essence in others and in ourselves transform our relationships?
· How do we let go of ego-self and come to know our Greater Self?
· How do we overcome the blocks we experience to Love?

This whole day workshop in the framework of Worship will explore these questions.  There will be opportunities for listening to one another and for sharing in small groups.  All Welcome: Friends, Attenders, Newcomers
