During this short online course, we will explore four well-known passages written by George Fox and listen to them performed in plainsong by Paulette Meier. What did these messages mean in the 17th century? What do they mean for us today?

Throughout his life, George Fox provided valuable guidance to the early Quaker movement, offering hope and encouragement in difficult times. We will look at the following four examples.

1. Spirituality: Be still and cool in thy own mind and Spirit
2. Community: Meet together in that which is eternal
3. Witness: Be patterns and examples
4. Hope: An ocean of darkness and death, and an ocean of light and love

The course is part of the celebrations of Fox 400.
