Stoking the Fire: Early Registration EXTENDED

There's more time to save! The Early Registration discount for Stoking the Fire, our annual North American retreat for Friends, has been extended to April 1st. Check out our registration information here to see the discounts in single room, double room, and commuter rates.

This year's Stoking the Fire theme is Stirring Up The Embers, which is drawn from the writings of Thomas Kelly:

"But the blazing discovery which Quakers made, long, long ago, is rediscovered again and again by individuals, and sometimes by groups. The embers flare up, the light becomes glorious. There is no reason why it cannot break out again, today, with blazing power. The world needs it desperately. It is in the hope that you and I, today, may rediscover this flaming center of religion that those words are written - not in an historical interest in a charming past." (Thomas Kelly, The Eternal Promise)

Join Friends as we stoke our spiritual fires and stretch ourselves through communal worship, learning, and fellowship. Together we will open ourselves to Christ's presence and power and allow the Spirit to work within us as we seek God's power for transformative action. Stoking the Fire is timed to coincide with Pentecost Sunday in the Christian calendar, and is intended as an annual retreat for individuals who are “on fire” with the Holy Spirit and are seeking deeper faith and bolder witness.
