In the very last texts of the New Testament to be written, women are ordered to keep silent when the community meets and their role as teachers and pastoral workers is mocked. Yet the earliest writings show women in substantial leadership roles, enjoying a new freedom from male authority. We will chart this change step by step, acknowledging its tragic consequences, but also gaining clarity about the nature of the liberation many women experienced in the earliest Christian communities.

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.
