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)

It’s hard to believe, but Richard Foster’s now-classic book on the spiritual disciplines is entering its fifth decade! It truly is one of the most influential books in creating spiritual renewal among followers of Jesus worldwide. This is the final year that Richard will be doing public speaking, and he has requested that a conference be held in Newberg, where he taught and served in pastoral ministry, when his book was written and published in 1978. This conference is especially designed for pastors and church leaders, but all interested in going deeper into their relationship with Christ are welcome. Special features of the conference include plenary sessions by outstanding leaders, workshops on the disciplines, inspiring music, times of prayer and spiritual deepening, and personal reflection on the illuminative artwork of five volumes of The Saint John’s Bible. Plenary speakers include: Richard and Nathan Foster, Robin Baker, Juanita and Rudy Ramsus, Chris Hall, and Mimi Dixon. More information is available online: https://renovare.org/40/fox. A time-sensitive notice: the $40 early registration break expires March 1, and fifty $100 scholarships have been offered to pastors and church staff members registering before May 1; alternatively fifty $100 scholarships for George Fox University students, faculty and staff are available for those registering before May 1. Please consider coming to the conference, and do let others know as well. For more information, contact Paul Anderson, Professor of Biblical and Quaker Studies at George Fox University (firstname.lastname@example.org).
