Philip Gulley is a Quaker pastor, writer, and speaker from Danville, Indiana. Gulley has written 21 books, including the Harmony series recounting life in the eccentric Quaker community of Harmony, Indiana and the best-selling Porch Talk essay series. Gulley is currently working on his 22nd book entitled "Unlearning God," in which he describes the process of spiritual growth, especially the re-interpretation of the earliest principles we learned about God.

The Regional Spiritual Life Ministry meets at least once a year in person to plan for Retreats at Camp Christian and to discuss possible new ministries for the Spiritual Life of Ohio. We also meet at the Minister's Retreat in February and have had some phone conference calls.
We feel we are expanding the programs at camp for creating community and giving new opportunity for ministers and laity to deepen their
Christian Spirituality. We hope and pray that God will bring in all of this, Transformation of body, mind and spirit. It is an effort to reach out beyond those we have been able to touch through the Ministers' Retreat to include other ministers and the laity of the church in Ohio and beyond.
