Finding the Spirit in the Scriptures

How do we relate to the Bible today? Early Quakers were confident that what they read in the Scriptures would match the openings they were given directly from the Inward Light. Today, liberal Quakers are often less sure. Yet this complex collection of texts has had an incomparable influence on Quakers and the wider culture, and is a record of people wrestling with the meaning of God, spirituality and mysticism over a period of a thousand years. In this series of pay-as-led sessions, individuals with a wide range of theological perspectives and spiritual experiences will reflect, in live conversation with a member of Woodbrooke staff, on their relationship to the Scriptures and whether the Spirit can be found there.
