Course Details

The silence of Quaker meeting is not an end in itself. It carries a sense of waiting. At any time, this can give rise to a depth that is collectively felt by those present. Or be the occasion of inspired words, heard by one individual or shared with the whole gathering.

This online course is made of four weekly webinars in which we will explore this theme of waiting, bringing together the reflections of Quakers with words of scripture, theology and poetry. W. H. Vanstone’s The Stature of Waiting and T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets will help us identify the riches in this theme, both for Quakers and others who may well be preparing to mark Advent, the season characterized by hopeful expectation.

Timothy Ashworth draws on biblical study, retreat work and interfaith dialogue to illuminate the nature of spiritual transformation.
