Course Details

All communities sometimes have to make difficult decisions – about acceptable behaviour, structural changes, property and finances, or other issues. In this course we will explore Quaker approaches to these situations. How can Quaker communities be supported to make good decisions even when it is difficult? When is it right to use a threshing meeting, to ask for expert advice, or to defer a decision to a later date? Useful for all Quakers and especially relevant to clerks and elders.

Rhiannon Grant is Tutor for Quaker Roles. She is a life-long Quaker who researches and writes about religious language and practices. She is also Deputy Programmes Leader, Centre for Research in Quaker Studies and supports our postgraduate programmes and research work.

Rachel Muers, a life-long Quaker, lectures in Theology a Leeds University. Her books include Testimony: Quakerism and theological ethics.
