Baltimore Yearly Meeting
Baltimore Yearly Meeting welcomes you to our website. We hope that you will find all of the information about Baltimore Yearly Meeting and the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) that you are looking for.
Baltimore Yearly Meeting is the regional organizing unit for the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the area of central Pennsylvania, Maryland, parts of West Virginia, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. It is through membership in a Yearly Meeting that individual Quakers become connected with the larger Quaker movement worldwide. "In fellowship, in deep listening, in waiting worship, in commitment to each other, it richly rewards those who embrace the challenge of being a Yearly Meeting Friend." (2011 draft Faith and Practice)
The Yearly Meeting has begun to collect reports from Local Meetings as to their Spiritual State during 2012. The reports that have been received to date are available for review and the Spiritual State of the Yearly Meeting will be considered and accepted during Annual Session 2013 this summer.
Continuing Rev_I_tion: A Young Adult Friends Conference on Ministry, Earthcare, and Social Action
All Young Adult Friends (ages 18-35) are invited to be a part of this 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.
This conference is open and welcoming to young adult Quakers of all backgrounds, experiences and Friends’ theologies. While we recognize that this gathering is firmly rooted in the un-programmed Friends' tradition, we also believe the thematic content to be urgently relevant to all branches of Quakerism and hope all interested young adults will feel that their voices belong at this table.
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. Apply early, as we expect the conference to fill up quickly. Program fees are $270 per participant for applications received by May 15, 2012, and $300 per participant for applications received after May 15, 2012. Scholarships will be available for participants who need support, and interested individuals are encouraged to request financial assistance from their monthly/yearly meetings or communities.
Any questions or inquiries should be directed to Emily Higgs.
