In this course we will explore the life and writings of the Mother of Quakerism, Margaret Fell using short talks, the reading of texts and group discussion, all within a safe and friendly atmosphere. Particular attention will be given to her contribution to the development of the early Quaker movement as a theologian, practical organiser, spiritual counsellor, political lobbyist, and advocate for women. In addition we will consider her letters to the Jewish communities in Amsterdam as an early example of Quaker interfaith engagement.

This event is for members of Quaker nominations committees.

How can we root ourselves in good practices of discernment while responding to the particular issues that face us? Nominations are at the quiet heart of the way we live together as Friends, when we listen faithfully to the Spirit. We will include the practical aspects of being ‘on nominations’. Friends can expect a renewed insight into the potential of nominations to strengthen meetings and enable them to flourish.
