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."

The Rest of the Story: Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Women

Tuesday, September 27, 2016
7:00 pm9:00 pm
Miller Library (Ellicott City, MD)

Although women occupied the innermost circle of dissident theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, they have remained a hole in his life story. Quaker theologian Diane Reynolds explores how they—and he—are relevant to our times. Diane (one of the founders of Patapsco Friends Meeting) has recently graduated from Earlham College. Her research at Earlham centered on theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who gained fame from his assassination attempt on Hitler and subsequent imprisonment and execution. Her dissertation became a mass-media book, about which she will be speaking at Miller Library at 7 pm. Join us to hear the story of her research and to support this Quaker theologian. You'll need to register for this event after Sept. 1. Call the library at (410) 313-1950 or register online at hclibrary.org.
