I will be co-teaching with Rhiannon Grant on this weekend residential course at the Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre in Birmingham. Bookings are already open and both Quakers and non-Quakers are welcome. We will look at the teachings of Jesus and Quaker theology along with headline issues such as same-sex marriage and sexual abuse. We will ask if Quaker thinking can provide an alternative to choosing between legalism and hedonism.
In my job at the Peace Pledge Union, I will be working alongside many others to promote a positive and progressive message for Remembrance Day: we need to remember all victims of war, resist militarism and work for peace. On the Sunday, I will be at the PPU’s alternative Remembrance ceremony in Tavistock Square, London. I’ll also be involved in other events leading up to this time and there will be related events around the UK. I will post more information here as it becomes available.
I am pleased to have been invited to speak at Freedom X, described by the organisers as a groundbreaking, multi-denominational event exploring the meaning of freedom and how faith impacts our understanding of being free spiritually, politically, socially and physically. It’s a Christian-based event but is open to all.
A weekend residential course at the Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre in Birmingham. I will be co-teaching with Hannah Brock of War Resisters’ International. Bookings are already open and both Quakers and non-Quakers are welcome. It is a chance to learn from our predecessors a century ago and explore how we can resist warfare today. Through sharing ideas and learning from each other, we will identify ways to be “conscientious objectors” to militarism in our everyday lives.
