Saturday 10 August
16:00-17:30 (UK time)

A drawing of George Fox with a purple tint.

This single live session is part of a series celebrating the 400th birthday of George Fox, in which key speakers assess Fox’s legacy from a variety of positions. In this session we will hear the perspectives of nontheist Friends.

David Boulton and Tim Regan of the Nontheist Friends Network will explore what George Fox means to modern Liberal Quakers who are humanists, or who adopt a non-realist understanding of God, and regard religion as a human creation.

David Boulton has written widely on Quaker history and nontheism. Tim Regan is Clerk of the Nontheist Friends Network.

The session is part of the celebrations of Fox 400.
