                The Evolution of Faith: A Changing Faith in a Changing World - Philip Gulley Religions tend to claim ancient authority for many of their doctrines and practices, failing to realize how contemporary culture shapes and influences their faith. Vital religion can and should celebrate its past, but when it fails to acknowledge current progress, it can do great damage. Join Philip Gulley in reflecting on the importance of a past and present faith. PHILIP GULLEY is a Quaker pastor and beloved writer and speaker from Danville, Indiana. He has become the voice of small-town American life through such works as his acclaimed Harmony series of novels chronicling life in the eccentric Quaker community of Harmony, Indiana and the best-selling Porch Talk series of inspirational and humorous stories. He is the author of, If the Church Were Christian, in which he explores a Christianity that is consistent with the teachings of Jesus and a church that encourages Jesus’ example as a model for living. In his latest theological endeavor, The Evolution of Faith: How God is Creating a Better Christianity, Gulley urges the reader to let go of tightly held beliefs and start the journey towards a dynamic and fluid faith – a Christianity we can believe in. Gulley attended Marian College in Indianapolis where he studied theology and sociology, and he received his Master of Divinity in 1992 from Christian Theological Seminar. Gulley is currently the pastor at Fairfield Friends Meeting near Indianapolis. He writes the popular monthly Back Home Again column for Indianapolis Monthly magazine. Additionally, he hosted the television program “Porch Talk with Philip Gulley on the Indiana PBS affiliate WFYI and their flagship show Across Indiana, for which he received Emmy® Awards in 2007 and 2009. In 2010 he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree by his alma mater, Christian Theological Seminary.

                  When a war is declared over, it returns home with those sent to fight it. Recently VA clinicians identified a wound of war that is neither physical nor Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but a deep wound of the soul, which they called moral injury. This lecture will explain the distinction and the impact of war on moral conscience.

                      Many of us experience Quakerism as a wonderful gift. We look around and see others who it appears might desire and benefit from what we have in Quakerism. For reasons both altruistic and self-interested we would like more people to adopt our faith as their own. We both wish to see more people benefit from an experience of our faith and practice, and would like to have more members in our Meetings to embody that faith in the service and care of others. From a business perspective this is a classic marketing challenge: “How do we help others see the value of what we have to offer, and grow our movement while meeting their needs?” But is it possible or desirable to “market” our faith? Is this a problematic, even dangerous way to frame this work? Are there risks in borrowing concepts from economics and capitalism to shape the work of sharing faith? If so, are there still insights we can draw from the world of marketing to help us grow the Quaker movement without corrupting it in the process? This session will try to bridge the worlds of management and ministry, of economics and theology, to see possible opportunities and identify pitfalls in conceiving of the practices of marketing as a resource for expanding the ranks of Quakers today.
