John’s Gospel is known as the Quaker gospel because the universal Light is central, extending across all worldly barriers of class, gender, and race. Jesus is a model for us – of humility and obedience.

We will read and explore together the spiritual messages of John’s teachings that inspired much of early Quaker spirituality. We will also open up selected topics in more detail, using small group sharing, reflective readings, and prayer time.

We will not focus much on doctrine, rather seeking to experience the Spirit by which these words were written, and which is come again to teach us now.
