Description

The Rufus Jones Leadership retreat brings together members of the Haverford college community to be in a space where we can reflect together on the life of Jones and it’s implications for today. The retreat provides an opportunity for a sustained critical engagement with the thought and work of Rufus Jones and its relevance to today’s challenges, and to shape the mission of the Rufus Jones Society. The very first retreat was held in Pendle Hill in May, 2018. The annual retreat is open to all members of the Haverford Community. If you are interested in leadership, spirituality, or are just curious to learn more we encourage you to come. We hope to see you soon at the historic Randnor friends meeting house!
