The deadline to register for Bucks Quarter Spiritual Formation is approaching…September 1st

The program is offered through PYM: Spiritual growth in a community of seekers, supporting each other on individual journeys.

Designed and facilitated by PYM Spiritual Formation Collaborative volunteers, this program represents a unique opportunity to energize and elevate your spiritual practice, to deepen your spiritual life and in turn, the spiritual life of your Meeting and Bucks Quarter.

The Spiritual Formation Collaborative hopes to offer this wonderful program in Bucks Quarter September 2017 thru June 2018 as follows:
Opening weekend retreat: September 29, 30, and Oct. 1, 2017 (Friday evening 5-9pm; Saturday 830am-5pm; and Sunday 8:30 am held at Middletown MM, 453 W Maple Ave, Langhorne, PA 19047
Mid- year: Saturday January 20, 2018 (9 am-5 pm) (Snow date January 27, 2018) Wrightstown MM, held at 535 Durham Road, Newtown, PA 18940
Closing weekend retreat: June 15, 16, 17, 2018. Fri, Sat, Sun, same times as opening retreat) Makefield MM held at 877 Dolington Rd, Newtown, PA 18940

During the 9 month program:

o Each person undertakes a commitment to a spiritual discipline for the entire program. This is a critical component of spiritual formation.

o Each person is a member of two groups: a reading group and a spiritual friendship/accountability group that meet monthly

o Through the nine months the reading groups (six to twelve people) gather to share, worship and discuss responses to readings from devotional works. These are books about spiritual experience, scripture, prayer, community, the Religious Society of Friends and ministry.

o Smaller groups of three to six persons within the larger reading groups are also formed and meet on another day each month, usually after a meal. They relate their on-going experience of the daily spiritual practice undertaken and other aspects of their spiritual journey during the nine-month cycle.


Childcare will be available provided we are informed of the need by September 1st.
