The Theology of Quaker Testimony
16 in stock
Friends say confidently that ‘Christianity is a not a notion but a way’. Behind the radical Quaker tradition of practical witness there is a distinctive understanding – a ‘theology of Quaker testimony’ – that may well have value beyond the world of Friends. We will give careful attention to the individual and collective patterns of action that make up testimony for Quakers, the way it is shared and sustained, its rootedness in everyday life, and its challenging relationship to the wider world.
The core component of this course is a live weekly webinar each Wednesday evening from 6.30 – 8.00pm. If you are unable to participate in the live webinar you will be able to access it to view at your convenience.
In addition there will be an online forum where questions can be raised and comments made.
Selected extracts from Rachel Muers’s book ‘Testimony’ will be sent out each week. The live weekly webinar will include time for questions and answers.
As well as the hour and half for the webinar, you will get most out of the course if you set aside an hour or so for further reading.
The course is for those who are interested in exploring the theological basis for Quaker testimony. While attention will be given to particular case studies of Quaker testimony in practice, this is not an introduction to the specific ‘testimonies’ of Friends.
