Course Details

How much has changed in the two decades since Jonathan Dale gave his prophetic Swarthmore Lecture challenging Friends to renew their social testimony? Does that challenge need updating for our time? During our time together we will reflect on how our faith asks us to engage with a society that remains both economically and politically polarised. To what extent do our lifestyles of comfort and convenience accommodate us to this world, and how might we become agents of change? Join us as we listen and learn from one another.

Martin Layton is a Senior Programme Leader at Woodbrooke. His interests are in exploring how Quaker spirituality strengthens our lives of active witness and in literary expressions of the religious experience.

Jonathan Dale gave the 1996 Swarthmore Lecture, Beyond the Spirit of the Age. He has written extensively on Quaker Testimony
