MIDWEEK: Experiments in Faithfulness

Wednesday evenings beginning Sept. 21

MIDWEEK: Experiments in Faithfulness

In the Quaker tradition of Midweek (Wednesday) worship, Beacon Hill Friends House brings you MIDWEEK: Experiments in Faithfulness. This is a weekly, one-hour, facilitated spiritual practice with Quaker flavor and an experimental ethos. Each week, a guest facilitator engages us in a unique spiritual practice that is meaningful to them, and that we can bring into our own lives.

Vocational Discernment Retreats

Many of us are yearning for work more fulfilling and meaningful than just a career. We’re asking deep questions about who we are; about what our values are, and how we might live in alignment with them; about where our gifts and skills meet real needs in the world; we’re asking, “to what end is our labor?” and considering what we’re putting out into the world in addition to what we gain from employment.

Quaker faith and practice offer tools that will equip both Quakers and non-Quakers with what they need to not only discern their call now, but to continue that discernment journey throughout their life, work, and ministry.

In 2020, BHFH residents asked for opportunities to explore their vocations and careers together — and were curious about what practices Quakerism had to offer around vocational discernment. Greg Woods and Jen Higgins-Newman began working on this project for residents, and quickly realized it would be useful in a broader context.
