LINK to Reading Quaker faith and practice: introduction [see also MfWfB August 2 minutes]
The Book of Discipline Revision Preparation Group invites you to join with us, and other Quakers across the country, in reading and getting to know our current Book of Discipline. We have discerned that this is an important preliminary step before a decision is sought
You could set up one or more reading/study groups in your meeting,
or Friends can join in as individuals. From September, ideas for group or individual activities and resource materials for group facilitators will be available for free download via the Being Friends Together website. The Friend will be running a series of articles, and there will be opportunities to share insights through online conversation about any possible revision.

LINK to Stop the Arms Fair key events 

The world’s largest arms fair, DSEi, plans to return to East London this September. The UK government helps to organise this arms fair, invites these military buyers from around the world, and helps arms companies to make financially attractive deals. This is done at at taxpayer expense.

Quaker Peace& Social Witness has been working together with a coalition of groups, including Stop the Arms Fair and Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) to build resistance to the arms fair.
