Few current day Quakers are born into Quakerism. Most find a meeting and stay for a while or a lifetime. Quakerism is a movement that is evolving and changing with no formal dogma, inspired by all faiths and none. This is an opportunity to speak to two local Quakers, and learn about what core principles guide their lives and work. Chris Gribble will be joined by Penny Estall to provide a short introduction and facilitate a discussion.
Following Chris and Penny's talk on Quakerism, David Warden will give a short talk on Humanism with a focus on drawing out similarities and differences from the Quaker point of view. After the two talks, we will have what promises to be a fascinating discussion about these two related but different approaches to the big questions of life.
As usual, we would like to cover the venue costs by requesting a (voluntary) contribution of about £2 or 3 please on the night.
