Exploring Quaker Business Method
Thursday 8 February
19:00-21:00 (UK time)
Do you have questions about how Quakers make decisions which you never quite get chance to ask? ‘Exploring Quaker Business Method’ looks at the process and the roles within it of every member and attender in the meeting.
Quaker Business Method is sited by many as the reason they became a member of the Religious Society of Friends. Starkly different to more mainstream decision-making processes, Quaker Business Method is unique in patience and depth of consideration members are required to find.
We will unpack Quaker phrases and practices like discernment, finding the sense of the meeting and the role of ministry.
This session is not just for new Friends, it is valuable to Quakers, seasoned and not, to invest time in consideration of what could be considered basic practices in order for us to keep working smoothly as a community and to be the change we want to see in the world.
