What are people saying about Canadian Yearly Meeting’s online courses?

They enhance spiritual connection

  • “The big Ah-Ha’s for me were around understanding what waiting in the light means for me, and what that sense of being connected to God means for me.”
  • “Reading Faith and Practice was inspiring and it reminded me of the inspiration and insights it contains. I enjoyed the discussions and sharing of the course participants.”
  • “Very meaningful – I’ve still got sooooo much to learn.”

They deepen understanding

  • “The specific topics we focused on were things that I’d somehow not understood very well even as I found Meeting for Worship sustaining. I think I understand better now.”
    The course “was very meaningful to me. I have been circling the Quakers for a few years now and it helped me decide that it’s right for me.”
  • “As someone who is new to Quakerism, I found the outline very informative. I appreciated the conversation with others, as it prompted a wider perspective of the topic under discussion and also allowed me to see some of the variety of the Quaker culture beyond the Meeting I have been attending. My Meeting was interested in my experience of the course.”
  • “It provided the information on Quaker ways it was presumably designed to, and also provided opportunities to interact with participants in Quaker ways. Both functions are of good intellectual, emotional and spiritual value in my quest to learn.”

They connect community

  • “The real thing that made this course meaningful was the connection I made with other Friends.”
  • “I greatly enjoyed meeting other Friends from across the country. I liked hearing people’s personal stories and perspectives.”
  • “I had an opportunity to communicate with Friends I did not know, and that was worthwhile.”
  • “I greatly appreciated hearing from other Quakers about their experiences, struggles, joys, and questions. Their contributions led me to reflect on my own journey and the dynamics of my particular Meeting. I also now feel like I have a stronger knowledge base in Quaker practice and history, and can more easily explain some Quaker concepts to curious friends and family.”
