Essentials of Quakerism
5 in stock
This course, designed particularly for those new to the Quaker way, will introduce the basic and essential elements of Quakerism: the expectation of a transforming encounter with the Divine (however we describe it); the use of a distinctive form of collective worship to nurture that encounter; discernment; and witness – the life that emerges as an outcome of our faith. There will be plenty of time for discussion and questions and a forum for additional conversation between the sessions. Everyone is very welcome, whether or not you have experienced Quaker worship.
This course will include live speaker sessions with Q&A and a private discussion forum.
Live sessions will take place at 19:00-20:30 (UK time) on Tuesday July 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th and will be recorded for participants who are unable to attend.

Ben has also made a particular study of Quakerism in terms of wider Christian theology of the second coming of Christ. His main academic work is in the sociology of religion. He worships in Clitheroe, part of Pendle Hill Area Meeting.
