Sunday February 1st

Some if the things that came up in notices and Meeting for Worship for Business
let me know what I might have missed! [MH]

 

Quaker Equality Week 6-15 March


The United Kingdom [UK] is one of the most unequal societies in the developed world. High levels of economic inequality present a fundamental challenge to Quaker testimony. It is also bad for us in social, economic and environmental terms. Then there is the inequality that exists worldwide...

 


A link to the briefing paper [PDF] Economic Inequality A Quaker Concern from Quaker Peace &

Social Action [a lot of solid facts and figures and references]


A link to more information on Economic Equality & Quaker Equality Week from Quaker UK website. Near the bottom of the page are links to two different statements from Quakers UK [and a link to further information...]

A link Food Banks are Not Enough a day conference held in Birmingham in November. I have combined two reports from people from South Wales Area Meeting who attended and the minute from the conference. [Note from blog post author: there are two very contrasting views from the two reports]

Quakeronmics a blog that encourages comment and debate, initiated by QP&SW link

Being Friends Together

A link to this huge resource [don't get lost]

Experimenting with Light


A link to the online version of the leaflet

[note from blog post author: I came across a recording of Rex Ambler talking about this and was very moved by it. Also whilst at Woodbrooke recently I had several conversations about it. A link to talk]

A link to the Experimenting with Light website


I [MH] read in Any Other Business from Quaker Faith & Practice 10.03
"Our shared experience of waiting for God’s guidance in our meetings for worship and for church affairs, together with careful listening and gentleness of heart, forms the basis on which we can live out a life of love with and for each other and for those outside our community."

A reminder of how Quaker Meetings take decisions link and as a leaflet, which might be easier on the eye, link

There will be an update with further information form Notices
