Early Quakers in their Own Words: Spirituality

19th October 2020 - 15th November 2020


In this course, we will engage at a deep level with several short passages written by early Friends that express something essential about their spirituality and personal experience. This will help us to understand these Friends better, and consider what their words mean for us today. Some of the words are very well-known and others less so. The passages will include writings by Edward Burrough, Sarah Blackborow, Steven Crisp, George Fox, James Nayler, Gertrude Derix Nieson, Isaac Penington, and Dorothy White.

There will be one live Q&A session towards the end of the course.

This is the first course in a series of three. Part two will focus on theology, and part three on witness (available in 2021).
