WILMINGTON — Ross Hennesy, assistant director and Philadelphia coordinator for Quaker Voluntary Service (QVS), will speak in Wilmington on “Stages of Spiritual Development: Is Quakerism Only for Old People?”
The talk will be given 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 28 in the T. Canby Jones Meetinghouse on the Wilmington College campus. The meetinghouse is attached to the Boyd Cultural Arts Center.
Ross, who became a convinced Quaker in 2004 at Harrisburg Monthly Meeting and has been a member at Germantown Monthly Meeting in Philadelphia since 2007, completed a master’s program in the Religious Studies department at Temple University, studying social movements, activism, and religion.
The QVS experience allows young adults to be passionately engaged in service and social justice while being grounded in worship, forming leadership for the present and the future of Friends, according to a press release.
“This combination of faith and action provides a rich foundation for spiritual growth,” stated the release.
