Quakers are encouraged to be individual thinkers. A quote from George Fox makes this clear “Christ saith this, and the apostles say this; but what canst thou say?” The full quote can be found in Quaker Faith and Practice https://qfp.quaker.org.uk/passage/19-07/

Topic: Quaker time together During lockdown we are holding a regular Monday event, Quaker time together. A time to meet and talk on a variety of topics that we decide on between us, usually in the form of creative listening (CL). The link is open from 4.15pm, the formal start is 4.30pm and the session lasts about an hour. We always aim to end by 5.30pm. Bring your own cup of tea. You are welcome to join in whether or not you wish to make a spoken contribution.

On Monday 8th March our creative listening will be open to whatever topic comes up from the individuals taking part – spirit led.
