Event Information

About this MIDWEEK practice

We are and have been connected to so many people, our ancestors, both chosen and blood. During this practice, we will spend our time learning to invite in our historical narratives and people to ground our practice in relationship. If you have a picture of a family member or close loved one bring it along to this experience.

Rachael Carter (they/them) came into interfaith work in their years in undergrad at Ursinus College in PA. They have also spent time working in Racial Equity and systems change work over the past several years. Rachael is passionate about plants and the natural world, cooking as a healing practice and understanding various community and social systems. They are interested in further exploring the intersection of religion, food, and employment and are hoping to continue this exploration with further study. In 2022, Rachael transitioned into the role of Philadelphia Coordinator with QVS.

What is MIDWEEK?

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. 

MIDWEEK is always free and open to the public. If you'd like to support this program, you can make a donation here.
