In Part III of our series on Quaker Social Change Ministry, we explore how to co-create a community that can sustain us for the long haul. Burnout can creep up on us unless we find nourishment in our spiritual life and in our communities. Grounding our work in worship, covenantal relationships, and story telling, we learn and grow together. With Lucy Duncan and Greg Elliott
Quaker Social Change Ministry
Spirited - Congregational - Transformative
Available to all Friends who wish to do Spirit-led, social justice work connected to the work of AFSC, Quaker Social Change Ministry is a transformative approach to social justice work that combines Spirit + Action to:
Re-enliven and re-imagine corporate witness
Follow the leadership of communities most impacted by injustice
Build relationships within the meeting, with local organizations, and with AFSC
Bring "Mystics" and "Activists" together
Participate in a Spirit-led group process
Tell our stories and learn in a supportive environment
Co-create the Beloved Community
Quaker Social Change Ministry is based on the work of Kelly Dignan, Kierstin Homblette, and Deborah Holder who created the Small Group Social Change Change Ministry model to support UU congregations interested in doing powerful social justice work at a local level. Quaker Social Change Ministry builds on their original model and adapts it to a Quaker audience.
