Continuing Rev_l_tion: Be Brought Low, and Back to the Root — A Young Adult Friends Conference on Simplicity

Dear Friends,

Pendle Hill is delighted to announce an exciting opportunity from June 14-19, 2013 for all young adult Quakers in North America.  Continuing Rev_l_tion: Be Brought Low, and Back to the Root — A Young Adult Friends Conference on Simplicity will be a powerful, action-oriented six-day gathering offered at Pendle Hill in Wallingford, PA. This is the second year of this amazing new conference series, and it will be held at Pendle Hill from June 14-19, 2013.  We hope you will share the following information and attached flyer with all young adults in your community.

We invite all Young Adult Friends (ages 18-35) to be a part of this six-day conference designed to strengthen a networked generation of awakened and effective spiritually grounded change agents.  The program will include inspirational speakers, workshops and trainings, worship and worship-sharing, fellowship, discernment of gifts and ministry, service and direct action.  We are calling all young adult Friends who feel a movement in our generation to create the world we believe is possible.  At its core, this conference is about providing the foundational skills and training to inspire revelation — or revolution — as we strive to live into Spirit-led relationship with ourselves, our communities and the earth.  

We are currently accepting applications at www.pendlehill.org/yald.  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and applicants will be notified within 2-3 weeks of submitting their application.  Program fees are $300 per participant.  This year, we have a special “Bring a Buddy” discount for individuals who register before April 1, 2013!! Apply now, and encourage a F(f)riend to apply too – if they apply, you will receive $50 off your conference cost.  This discount only applies to full-time participants; more details can be found on the application.  Please note: there will be scholarships available for participants who need support, and interested individuals should consider asking their monthly/yearly meetings or communities for financial assistance.

 More information about the conference can be found at www.pendlehill.org/yald.

Please share this opportunity with everyone you know, and encourage those with interest to apply.  Any questions or inquiries should be directed to ehiggs@pendlehill.org.

In friendship, 

Emily Higgs

Conference Coordinator

2nd Deadline: June 1st, 2013

 Under 35? Get yourself to CYM this summer and be part of the 2013 Youth Challenge!

Last summer, Canadian Young Friends Yearly Meeting received $25,000 to bring together at least 50 Young Friends and Young Adult Friends at CYM 2013. We know that funding can be a major barrier to attending and we’re incredibly excited to be able to help YFs and YAFs come together from across the country in Kemptville, ON this August 16th-24th.

Why two rounds of funding?

The hope is that we can help people plan well in advance or pull their plans together after summer employment plans are confirmed–please apply for the March deadline if you already know what your summer looks like!
