We had a great time in San Diego a couple weeks back for the annual Quaker Theological Discussion Group meeting at the American Academy of Religion. There were a number of great papers given and stimulating discussions that followed. One of the highlights (this is Wess writing) was Cherice Bocks’ paper “Friends and Watershed Discipleship: Reconciling With People and the Land in Light of the Doctrine of Discovery.” Bock delivered this for the Quaker Studies Unit on Saturday morning and did an incredible job. Once it is published we will share a link here, you are going to want to read this. Finally, we want to welcome new members to the QTDG steering committee, all who were approved during our QTDG business meeting.
