Writing & Blogs: Emily Provance

My blog, which I usually reserve for articles that might be useful on an ongoing basis, can be found here.

For those who are interested in reading more frequent and timely reflections, I also send a weekly message out by email. These contain writings about travel in ministry and information about upcoming events. You can add yourself to the mailing list here.

I’ve written several Friends Journal articles. Envisioning Broader Quaker Membership was written with Jennifer Swann and published in 2017. In it, I share my own experience with membership in the Religious Society of Friends. A second article, published in 2018, is The Grief and the Promised Land, about the necessity of grieving what is lost when we change. And finally, published in 2019 and written with NiaDwynwen Thomas, Feeding Young Adults with a Taste of Abundance talks about feeding young adult Friends both physically and spiritually.

Spiritual Gifts, the Beloved Community, and Covenant was originally given at Beacon Hill Friends House in June 2019 as a Weed Lecture. It is available in print as a Pendle Hill pamphlet and can also be watched in video form.

Come and See was first offered in March 2019 in worship at a Friends World Committee for Consultation Section of the Americas Meeting. It talks about God’s invitation for us and the relationship between faithfulness, growth, and safety.

Sanctuary originated as a plenary message to New York Yearly Meeting in July 2021. It can also be watched in video form here and below.
