Friends across Canada are invited to participate in this new free online course facilitated by David Summerhays (Montreal Monthly Meeting). The five-week course will begin mid-April and conclude in May 2016.
The course content will include:
• Exploration of the concept of “leadings”
• Readings and discussion on how early Friends and Friends throughout history have understood “leadings”
• Discernment of what is and what is not a “leading”
• Practice explaining Quakerism to newcomers
• Exploration of what participants learned in the course

E&O has been offering the two courses designed by our former Quaker Education Program Co-ordinator – Introduction to Quakers and Friends’ Ways and Being Peace, Being Quaker. Participants have been suggesting topics for new courses such as: the Quaker testimonies, the mystical foundations of Quakerism, exploring Quaker journals, spiritual resources in Faith and Practice, Christ-centred Quakers, spiritual discernment, Bible passages that form the foundation of Friends’ faith. Perhaps you have another idea! We are asking Canadian Friends to make us a proposal for a course you will develop.
What title will you give your course?
How would you “advertise” it? i.e. Give a short description of the content.
What qualifications do you have for designing it?
How many sessions will your course take at 1.5 to 2 hours per session (we suggest not more than six)?
How many hours will it take for you to design it?
Are you willing to design it for $35 per hour?
When can you do the work? (E&O would like to have it completed between January and March 2016, but can consider later times if necessary.)
Send your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1, 2015.
