‘On Earth as it is in Heaven; The Kingdom of God and the yearning of Creation.’
The 2019 Swarthmore Lecture was given by Eden Grace on Saturday 25th May, at Friends House, Euston Road, London as part of the Yearly Meeting of Quakers in Britain.
Eden explored Quaker eco-theology, from early Friends to Quakers today. Through stories of Friends’ response to climate change, she shows how this witness arises from their Quaker faith and ask us to imagine and create a positive future. What are the obstacles to radical, prophetic, joy-filled, corporate action?
