2019 Gathering & Annual Sessions
April 17 – 21, 2019
United Methodist Life Enrichment Center
Fruitland Park, Florida

our theme this year is
Taking off the Masks:
Undoing Racism as Personal & Community Practice

Join Friends from all over the SEYM region and beyond for 5 days of retreats, workshops, worship-sharing, the Walton Lecture, Intergenerational fun, a great Youth Program, and our Yearly Business Meeting Sessions.

The 55th Annual Walton Lecture • Saturday, April 20th • 7 pm
“Taking off the Masks: Undoing White Supremacy as Spiritual Practice”
will be presented by
Lucy Duncan & Noah White

Lucy and Noah — as a white woman and a bi-cultural man — will tell stories of how the socialization of white supremacy was taught to us, and explore our journey toward deeper awareness and mutual liberation. Through deeply personal stories, they will delve into the dynamics of growing up in a system that uses us to perpetuate and receive harm—in our families, communities, and society—and explore the sometimes quite intimate way white supremacy is transmitted and the healing that has happened for each of them. They will talk about their shared work in the Quaker community to hold others as they struggle toward and resist their liberation.
